Paul Sanders has been a professional photographer since 1984, his career in newspapers and photojournalism culminated in his appointment as The Picture Editor of The Times in 2004. In this prestigious role he oversaw the entire visual look and feel of The Times as it transitioned from broadsheet to the modern compact format. During this time he was instrumental in developing the way images were delivered digitally to subscribers.
At the end of December 2011 he left The Times to pursue his love of landscape photography.
He is passion for photography covers every format from 5x4 to his iPhone to capture images. His work conveys the emotional and spiritual responses he has to the landscape in front of him.
Paul’s journey from news photographer to landscape photography began as a form of therapy to help him deal with the stress, depression, insomnia and anxiety that resulted from the pressure he was under at The Times.
Many of the images he creates are long exposures, leaving the shutter open for 5 - 45 minutes to allow the light and elements to move, this develops an ethereal quality that has a painterly feel to the photographs.
Printing his own images forms the last, but most important part of his workflow and completes the connection with his subject.
In September 2014 his work was recognised by Fuji, when he was made a Fujifilm Ambassador, as a result he has been involved in development work on their cameras and leads workshops and training days for Fujifilm UK, Fujiholics, Light and Land, Fotospeed and Lee Filters.
