Digital Photography

Film Photography

For traditional "analog" photography, Paul uses a Nikon F2AS 35mm SLR. The Nikon F2AS (black body) was the camera of choice for most photojournalists of the '70's and is a highly sought after camera for collectors today.

Photographic Film & Papers

Paul exclusively uses Ilford® films and photographic papers for his "wet darkroom" black and white film work. Ilford's consistent quality and unwavering commitment to the film community sets them apart from other manufacturers.

Paul uses Gitzo® carbon fiber tripods for all of his photographic work. Gitzo® tripods are made in Italy and are the most durable and lightweight tripods on the market.
