Thanks for visiting my site.
Firstly let me introduce myself, As the name of this site suggests, my name is Paul Nolan. When I am not doing my 'day job' you will most likely find me down by the River where I live with my tripod and my camera.
The aim of this slightly obsessive past time? well - hopefully to continue learning the subtleties of an art form that is photography. An art form that is constantly changing in the our new 'connected' world.
The main reason however is to hopefully create something that someone somewhere considers as 'art' and to make something that has not been 'made' before.
I have been doing, and learning this art in my spare time over the last five years and I thought it was now about time to share the results so far with anyone who wants to see them.
This site presents photographic imagery in number of collections borne from places and themes that have inspired me.
I have come to realise that there seems to be a common theme of 'water' and 'time' in my collections. Water features in most of them and a specialism of mine is long exposure photography which render the world in a unreal but beatiful way in my opinion.
The first collection is entitled 'The River' and this is where my inspiration came from initially. I live in Isleworth, South West London in the UK on the banks of the River Thames. This is my photographic classroom where I am learning this art.
The rest of my collections are the result of usually early mornings when I am travelling and is where I am able to practice what I have learnt at the river.
The 'Lakeland' collection is a selection of images from the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, England,
The 'Cornwall' collection is a crop of images from England's coastal county at the other end of the country. I will be adding to these and creating new collections over time.
The 'Travel' collections contains imagery from elsewhere away from home.
Lastly, there is a collection dedicated to panoramas in each of the above subject areas.
One, hopefully 'different' approach I have taken is the the 'Variations' section on some of 'collection' sections. I am a believer that the same location one day can deliver an image with a completely different feel than another day which is no lesser or greater in it's artistic value.
So the 'Variations' sections take one location and presents it from differing viewpoints and in different seasons, light and weather.
I hope you enjoy these images. Please feel free to use the form on the right of this page to leave feedback and ask questions, I will respond as soon as I can which will usually be in the evenings.
I have made a selection of these images available to buy in print form. For more information, please go to the 'Prints' section of the site. Please consult this page should you be interested in purchasing prints for any of my images.
