My name is Paul Welburn, born a Yorkshireman but now live in the West Midlands and have done for the last 22 years. I’m married to my beautiful, unbelievably supportive best friend & wife Sarah (same person just incase you were wondering). We have two and a half purse drainers in the form of Holly & Harvey and our lovely Sprocker dog Chester.
Some photographers decide from the moment they pick up a camera that being a professional photographer is all they have ever dreamed of, with most falling into photography by means of a hobby. Before I started using a camera properly i’d always be in awe of that ‘wow’ photograph and wished I had the knowhow to produce such images.
My journey started with a fluke photo I took of my daughter around 10 years ago which I thought was great. From then on I thought ‘this photography lark isn’t as hard as it seems’. I couldn’t have been further from the truth. After hours and hours of practice, dedication and training courses my photography has drastically improved, moving me away from the hobbyist to a more serious photographer.
