His outgoing, personality and people skills allow him to build relationships quickly and easily, engaging with classes and individuals to maintain an interactive and collaborative learning process. Whether teaching one-to-one or in a classroom environment, Paul uses subtle comprehension testing methods to ensure the topic has been understood.

Studying all aspects of photography for more than 5 years, from analogue capture right through to process and printing, gave Paul the skill set to not only transition to digital capture systems with ease but to also combine these skills with his natural ability to teach. His teaching experience spans a decade in adult education, consumer training and guest lecturing at FE/HE establishments.
