Paul Winter is one of the UK’s leading beauty photographers, creating exceptional still and moving images. For over 15 years Paul has worked for international advertising agencies, from Saatchi & Saatchi to Lowe Worldwide shooting major campaigns including Pantene, Piz Buin and Max Factor.
Born and bred in the north-east of England, Paul began his career as a model, a job which took him all over the world and which first ignited his interest in photography. At 24 he moved back home from Milan and bought his first camera. Rather than take the traditional college route, Paul built a darkroom in the back of a defunct British Telecom van and set about teaching himself the basics of photography. He won his first commission six months later.
Drawing on his modelling experience, Paul quickly found a niche in the world of fashion and beauty, to which he has brought his uncompromisingly elegant vision. Now settled in Brighton, Paul runs his own studio near the seafront and works alongside a trusted team of producer, retoucher, make-up artist, stylist, editor and assistants to produce consistently outstanding images.
Paul is represented by The Peter Bailey Company in the UK. More of his work can be seen at his website.
