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
