"If I was to describe myself as snappy then I would be referring to my choice in clothes rather than my photography!" "With a keen eye for detail coming from my design background, all of my work is carefully thought out and composed."
"My aim is to capture life and the world as I see it through my eyes... it's just a slice of life according to a guy named Paul!"
Born in Cuckfield in the Southeast of England, Paul Tupman is a successful Designer & Photographer who lived and worked as an Interior Designer in both Riyadh and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia from October 2001 until December 2010 and is now based again in the United Kingdom.
Paul first picked up a camera at a very early age, chronicling life as he grew up amongst his friends and family in the south of England. Following his love for the arts, he entered into Art College before shaping his career in the design world and graduating in 1997 with a First Class Degree in Furniture Design.
Photography was always a tool that Paul loved to go back to again and again during his studies, but it was only recently, several years later and in a foreign land that he shaped this passion into a more serious aspect of his life.
As a keen traveller and voyeur on all facets of life, Paul will turn his attention and camera to almost anything that comes his way. He has a particular passion for big wide open landscapes and grand architecture. But perhaps more than that, it is about capturing life and how it interacts within these surroundings.
Beginning his career in the UK as a Furniture Designer in Birmingham, Paul then moved to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in October, 2001 to take up a new role as Interior Designer in a prominent design studio. Continuing his career in Saudi Arabia, Paul later took the position as Senior Interior Designer at a new office in the coastal city of Jeddah.
In February, 2011 Paul re-located to the United Kingdom, settling in the Derbyshire village of Melbourne.
Since this time, Paul has been immersing himself into the local community, taking part in the Melbourne Arts Festival and offering his services as a photographer to local charities. Paul has also made good use of his contacts in Saudi Arabia, working from the UK alongside Jeddah based ALAM Creative. Together they have created a strong partnership and identity taking on various architectural and design projects.
Paul has worked on many high quality Architectural and Interior Design projects during his career for renowned private and commercial clientele. Now working under his own name, Paul will bring all of this valuable international experience in meeting every new clients' expectations.
Whilst working as an Interior Designer, Paul also gained further photographic experience with Architectural and Interior Design photography.
His photography has been used commercially for both client portfolios and websites. Further to this his work was recently featured in a new architectural hardback publication focussing on the use of Travertine stone in contemporary architecture.
