Paul’s photography gear includes 2 professional grade Canon DSLR cameras and a range of zoom and wide angle lenses along with a host of external lighting options and backup equipment ensuring he is ready for any situation which arises.

Why is this important? Well, what if something goes wrong? Technology is great when it works, but as a professional event photographer Paul knows that should a camera break, a memory card fail or a battery pack run out then the event will still go on and if your photographer isn’t prepared for such an occurrence, your going to miss out on a lot of precious memories. It’s for this reason Paul carries back ups of each and every piece of equipment he uses ensuring there is no downtime at an event and he is always ready to shoot.

Peterborough Tour Series

When you run an event you want to be able to show the world what happened at it as quickly as possible afterwards, be it through social media, magazines, newspapers or other media.
