Paul O'Connor: Freelance Photographer Ayr

Photographer Profile

Photographer Work Description
I'm a commercial, industrial, advertising photographer so i generally shoot what the client requires but always try to be as creative & progressive a possible.
I always like to have a personal project on the go to keep me creative and current. This year its portraits and last year it was 'One a Day' This was the challenge of taking at least one image every day for a whole year. Whilst not all were award winning I did get some fantastic images. I have never shot for stock before but I do think that having to focus on stock would both be rewarding and challenging.
I have recently gained a pilots license to fly a drone so that will open up plenty of new horizons.

Qualifications & Experience
A former Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm photographer for 4/5 years
I than had 6 years as an in house photographer for Land Rover marketing, where I gained considerable commercial experience before turning freelance.
I have run my own business for about 25 years.
I am completely at home whether in the studio surrounded by lights & reflectors or on location waiting for the right light.
I have just recently gained a Drone pilots license (RPQs) in order to broaden my photographic offering and explore new

Other Interests:
A keen cyclist, walker, runner (maybe not running) with a 1st Dan in Tae Kwon Do.
Love music, from Bluegrass & Folk to Heavy Metal & Grunge.
I’m a mean acoustic guitar player, as long as there are only 3 chords !
