Amazilia Photography is owned and operated by Paul, a British photographer, who started working with fine art nudes as a photographic subject for continual learning, development and enjoyment as he neared retirement from a career working with several major organisations.
Amazilia Photography is named after a species of hummingbird native to Peru and Ecuador. The name was chosen because Paul finds hummingbirds to be one of the most beautiful and inspiring natural wonders of the world. The splendour of these tiny avian jewels is reflected in some of their names such as Shining Sunbeam, Little Sunangel and Andean Emerald. This radiance, strength and beauty is also seen in women; a subject that has fascinated artists in every discipline over millennia.
Paul focuses his work in three core areas of people photography – fine art nude (including athletic/dance) and sensual nudes, but his principal focus has developed into nudes in the natural environment. With the latter, Paul is always trying to depict a sense of the deep-rooted, intrinsic connection between people and the natural world.
He is an internationally published photographer who has extensive experience working with models, and who has recently won the Runner-Up Photographer of the Year position with an international magazine, as well as achieving success in two global fine art photographic competitions. He holds Distinctions in both Foundation and Advanced Photography Diplomas, and is currently working on a book “Rewilding the Human Spirit” with some of his favourite images from natural shoots.
