Paul Vincent is a self-taught landscape photographer based on the West Sussex Coast near Chichester, where he has lived since 1978 with his wife and three children.
Paul’s fascination with photography was kindled as a young boy, by a school teacher who was a naval photographer with the North Atlantic Fleet during the Second World War. In 1961 he was sent to film the volcanic eruption on the island of Tristan Da Cunha, in the South Atlantic. His colour photography of the event was stunning, and those images have been embedded in Paul ever since. He instantly became hooked.
In the past eight years Paul has begun to take his photography more seriously, and spends much of his spare time in his ongoing quest to capture the ever changing moods and light of the South Downs and the Sussex coast. It is a challenge full of endless possibilities and surprises.
