After several years teaching photography, Paul joined BGS in 2005 and is responsible for photography and video in Southern Britain. He is called upon to photograph every aspect of BGS work from the core store to fieldwork, from microscopic fossils to aerial photography. Whilst on fieldwork, scientists are not always able to record good images of the work they are doing as they are often busy with the science itself. The time constraints imposed by a rising tide, for example, means care and consideration for photography are easily missed. Paul is on hand to do this job. This frees up the scientists from having to think about photos and videos, but also means that the very best images are captured with the expertise and equipment only a professional photographer has. It also provides the opportunity for Paul to record BGS staff doing their jobs.
