About Paul Simpson

'I enjoy photographing and creating images that are influenced by my personal aesthetics, discuss and explore my different 'worlds' and exhibit my conventional and unconventional photographic process.'

My name is Paul Simpson, I am 38 years old and currently reside in Uniontown, OHio - which is a suburb of Akron, Ohio. I have been active in the arts throughout the majority of my life, but I really started to concentrate on the art of Photography when I was 17 years old (through a highschool photography class.) I went on to study Fine Art Photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and graduated from Columbia College in Chicago, Illinois. Currently I am just continuing to build my portfolio as well as beginning to step out into the world of freelance photography/art. I also run an interactive facebook page for photographers (The Photography Co-op) where topic related exhibits are executed, viewed and critiqued by participating photographers. Outside of my photography I am very active in the music world (band/orchestra), the animals I share my life with, gardening and my family.

What I tend to photograph in my work are the people, places and things that immediately impact my surroundings and daily life. I do specialize within portraiture but recently I have 'spread my wings' into photographing what I like to do outside of photography and artmaking such as gardening, family and music. I very much enjoy the process of planting a seed, watching it grow, nurturing it into a flower/plant or vegetable and then photographing it. I think recently in my work-I am very much about the background or the process of whatever I am shooting-I really enjoy knowing a 'story line' to whatever I am shooting even if it isn't always apparent.

I have twenty years experience in photographing, developing
and printing photography. I have extensive working knowledge
of black and white and color development processes within a darkroom environment as well as within different photo editing software. I am very knowledgeable and proficient with all types of alternative and natural lighting set-ups as well as studio shooting. I photograph using 35mm format, medium format, large format (4x5), polaroid, and pinhole cameras. Digitally I use a Nikon D90 and a Canon 7D as well as I edit within Photoshop and Picassa 3.

Favorite Influences: Cindy Sherman, Sally Mann, Laurie Anderson, Georgie O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, Yo-Yo Ma, Man-Ray, Lady Gaga, Robert Mapplethorpe, David Lynch, The Starn Brothers, Darren Aronofsky, Mark Rothko, Ansel Adams and Herb Ritts.
