Club Night News: 20th April – Paul Harris: Brief Encounters

Paul Harris FRGS – adventurer, explorer, story teller – is an extraordinarily prolific and talented pro photographer and film maker. He took us on a spell-binding journey from his time as a documentary photography student under David Hurn at Newport College of Art and design, to projects and commissions all over the world including his current homeland in Nidderdale, N Yorkshire. He gave us a fascinating insight into life as a successful stock photographer and someone with an incredible number of high level commissions and collaborations.

He is an engaging speaker and his approach to photography translates very well to high end enthusiasts (such as our members!). He has a passion for working on projects, always with storytelling in mind. He loves people and working with people – getting in close, putting them at ease. If it’s people at work, get them doing something. Make a list, who’s interesting? Let the sitter be partly in control

Altogether it was an entertaining and inspirational night and we look forward to Paul’s next visit to Durham
