Martin Paul is the oldest son of German Immigrants. Since his first adventures taking pictures with his father's 35mm SLR film camera, Martin has enjoyed photography. Born and raised in Connecticut, he recently moved to the quaint town of Portland with his wife of 22 years. Due to his New England upbringing, he especially enjoys photographing farms and vintage farming equipment, barns, nature and rolling landscapes of the local area. During the past few years in his copious free time, he has been practicing and perfecting his techniques, capturing the beauty of the world as he sees it. His continually evolving technique currently involves close-ups and alternate perspectives of intriguing subject matter, which focuses on a blend of texture, color and light.
