Paul Sinclair is a professional photographer based in Thornbury, Victoria
I am a Melbourne based photographer specializing in natural landscape and wilderness photography. For over 25 years the natural world has been a magnet drawing me and my camera into some amazing and humbling places.
Like all landscape photographers I am primarily drawn to light and the attempt to work with it to capture an interesting location in its most dramatic or most subtle mood. Australia is fortunate to still have many natural places to chase this light. Even in my state of Victoria alone there is an amazing variety of environments such as coast, desert, mountain and forest. Trips into these areas requires careful planning to maximize the photographic opportunities and sometimes involves long periods or repeat visits patiently waiting for the right conditions. Many of my images were taken on extended walks and often involved pre-dawn starts to the day and late finishes in order to capture the best possible lighting conditions. Often disappointment comes in the form of clouds obscuring the sunrise or mist blowing away just as a shot is being composed. But when all the elements come together, just for a moment, it is possible to feel a real sense of place and glimpse something of the intangible mystery of the natural world. If I can capture something of the emotion of that moment in a photograph and convey this to the viewer then the image is a success. Of course this is a work in progress and my best image is the one I haven't taken yet. View More...
