About Artist

Paul Coghlin

“Throughout all of my projects, I’ve worked to capture not just a subject’s form, but also a visual and perhaps painterly representation of the fleeting emotion I felt at the time the images were captured; encouraging the viewer to experience at least part of that same intangible sensation when they study my work”. British fine-art photographer Paul Coghlin was born in London in 1967, and now lives in eastern England with his wife, who is also an artist. Paul received his Fellowship from the British Institute for Professional Photography (BIPP) in 2012, attained for “distinguished and exceptional ability and creativity”. He is the recipient of over 50 international awards, including the prestigious International Photography Awards in New York. He has twice received the Photographer of the Year award from the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) - in 2010 and again in 2013 - and the Peter Grugeon Award (ABIPP) in 2010. His images have appeared regularly in publications and international exhibitions, including at AIPAD in New York and the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition in London. In addition to his photographic qualifications, Paul also holds a BSc (Hons) Degree in Environmental Science from Plymouth University (1993) and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Remote Sensing (Earth imaging/Photogrammetry) from University College London (1997). Paul’s work is held in private collections around the world and he is represented by Weston Gallery in Carmel, California.
