About me

Paul Blieden is a painter and a photographer who lives in Redondo Beach, California.

He has been doing both since he was in high school, wow - that's over fifty years.
His photography hangs in company offices and homes across the United States.
He works in both medium format and 35mm. Using his new Canon 5D Mark III digital and a Bronica ETRS,
he travels throughout the United States and overseas taking photos mostly for his own enjoyment.
But he has found that many individuals like his work enough to actually pay him money for his work.
What a dream to do what he enjoys and to get paid to do it.
Mostly self taught, he has learned through a lot of trial and error to see what pleases his artist's eye;
and when someone tells him one of his photos looks like a painting, he knows he has done something right.


Paul also does fashion and headshot photography…you can see his work at www.southbayheadshots.com

Memberships:

Redondo Beach Art Group

Training:

Studied with several world famous photographers, notably with George Lepp, Don Gale, and Arthur Morris.
Studied art at UCLA and OTIS College of Art and Design

    Hi Paul! Thank you very much for your friend request! I am most happy to confirm. Your style and your themes are excellent and am glad to be able to exchange thoughts with you. I am also very happy to be able to communicate with you, even though I can't speak English. As luck would have it, my wife grew up and went to School in the Bay Area and teaches English at the local Adult Education Center here in Germany. (I am Roland's official translator :-), Linda)
    My method of showing appreciation for good photography does not include lots of wordy compliments. The fact that I set a complimentary point (Lob) for a photo includes all my respect and appreciation for extraordinary work. I am not a friend of empty phrases and comments. I hope you understand? I look forward to future communication!
