Paul Dawson shoots a very broad range of people, places and panoramas - never allowing himself to be "pigeonholed" or to stand still within a rapidly changing industry.

As Digital becomes a major part of Paul's approach , you will see images on the website derived from the "old silver days", to those that have only appeared on screen.
