About the Author


Hi, I’m Paul! Travel and photography writing is my true calling. I love to learn, therefore, writing about new subjects and checking out new photography gear is enjoyable for me. I love to travel, and I love to improve my own photography skills through writing, and day trips into the great outdoors.

I have always had a life-long passion for writing and literature – in later life, this has translated into a successful freelance writing career. Throughout the last few years, I have written for countless companies. Furthermore, my work has been published on various travel and photography blogs.

When I am not creating content, I still love to write – I do this through my personal travel blog – www.haveyoupackedthecamera.com. This blog is the platform from which I share my adventures with the world. I don’t do it to make a living – I do it because it brings me joy, and it tests my creative abilities.

As you can imagine, most of my free time is spent traveling and/or doing some kind of photography related thing whether it be editing on Lightroom, or trying out new techniques with my Canon EOS M50. I am also an avid gamer, and love to keep active through playing Badminton!
