ABOUT PAUL COMPTON
CPAGB, award-winning photographer with a passion for landscape photography and growing following on Youtube.
With my very understanding wife Mrs C (aka Denise Compton) we get out and about as much as possibly, Walking hills, Lakes , Woodland and Beaches I hope to document and bring our trips, travels to you. To maybe encourage others to get out take photos or just to enjoy what we have on offer. I mainly get out at weekend due to my full time day job. My aim is to record my photographic life and journey as i grow.
I have been a member of photographic clubs for years and had a camera in my hand since my first school trip to London, I don’t only shoot Landscape, I have shot Weddings/People & Portraits, Sports, Equestrian to fast moving Motorsport. Denise and I cover many events over the country as well Food Festivals, Rally’s, Firework Displays and more.
I find a lot of inspiration from landscape photography books, mostly of the UK, I do like to look at others work and find places to visit mainly in the UK. This is turn can make it hard to get a good pleasing photo of my own due to seeing the best already taken in the books and online, but does not stop me trying.
I have in fact had images published, this is a very nice feeling, something i hope you all get to discover someday. Another is my awards, i have won Clubman of the year in my local camera club, had many 1st 2nd & 3rd certificates for other images in club competitions. The biggest award was my CPAGB (Credit Award of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain).
