Paula Duck – Brand Photographer
I’ve been photographing people and products since I left college, and I still absolutely love it, being a brand photographer is my passion, helping others to achieve their goals by telling their visual story.
I love being based in York, one of the most beautiful cities in the UK. There is always something to inspire me when I am out and about, usually with a camera in tow. I love capturing shots of everyday street life and the places I visit just for me.
Some of my other loves include, hanging out on the waves sailing, playing, watching and listening to music, strolls in the woods and visiting many wonderful cities all around the world.
I have 20+ years professional experience in commercial and portrait photography. In the beginning every shot taken on precious film and it was important to make sure every exposure was not wasted. I learned that the scene settings, backgrounds and lights needed to be just right to achieve the perfect shot. These days we use high quality digital photography however all of those skills remain embedded in my approach. Even now I don’t like to waste shots and always keep the output ‘in focus’ so to say.
I have been involved in teaching photography to children and adults for many years passing on my knowledge is an enriching experience. I also love just meeting new people and talking techniques and photographic styles, I am always ready to learn in return of new developments in the trade
