Paul Dieter’s love of photography began in his single-digit years. Paul’s father, an electrical engineer, understood the science and art of
photography, and set up a basement darkroom where he and Paul could process film and make their own prints. After service in the Peace Corps, Paul went on to get a degree in commercial photography and transformed his hobby into a career, working as a corporate location photographer for many years. As the photography business went digital, he decided to move on, but he never put down the camera.
As a commercial photographer, Paul greatly enjoyed collaborating with his clients crafting corporate messages with film. Now that he is free to pursue photography as art, he is developing a style based on his own vision of imagery and technical possibilities. Blending classic photography skills with technical post-processing and digital painting, he is rediscovering the joys of that young man in the home-built darkroom, creating pieces that meld the vibrant colors of the Impressionist painters with the technique of the great Art photographers of our time.

These images were developed specifically for printing on textured watercolor paper, but they also work well on canvas. The artist recommends printing on one of those two media.
