about

about me:

I am Paul Francis and I am performing arts portrait and beauty photographer based in Merseyside, United Kingdom.
I’ve always been in and drawn to the world of creativity and art. From the age of 14 (in school) to my mid 30’s, I played many venues as a singer / songwriter and I worked in the music industry as an artist, writer and producer. I spent many years in studios, countless live gigs on stages of all different sizes and I was always around some of the most incredible and talented musicians, writers, engineers and producers as well as photographers and associated.

So, photography, was a natural extension of this. I loved landscape photography, then I graduated to street photography then portrait work. The latter grabs me the most. I find people, their story and journey to be fascinating. Often their lives are etched in their faces.

I love photography and I hope my website showcases my work.

”Paul was very professional, good humoured and made me feel very welcome and comfortable. He had good creative ideas about what he wanted to do and was willing to follow my suggestions also. The shoot was very enjoyable and Paul is easy and enjoyable to work with. Before and after he was very communicative and I received simple but informative information on how to download my pictures which where outstanding quality of both hi-resolution and web-ready images for my portfolio. Highly recommend.” Matthew McDonald

"Completed a shoot with Paul a few months back and I’m still so grateful. Made me feel at ease and he took his time to figure out what I wanted from the photos. Can’t wait to book another shoot and I love all the photos". Sonia Sidje

"Paul is a true professional photographer! He makes you feel comfortable and gives good direction in order to capture the best images possible. Extremely helpful, polite and knowledgeable. Shared some great stories and I'll definitely contact again for future shots," Andy Milligan

"Paul made contact with me via Starnow; the communication was excellent throughout and the shoot was very enjoyable. He is genuinely nice guy and the images we got as a result were fabulous. I would not hesitate to recommend Paul." Paolo Bafico
