photographer & director

Paul Thompson is a world renowned photographer with a distinctive style. His area of expertise focuses on characters, with works that often depict groups and portraits of real people. While continuing to shoot many high profile commissions, Thompson has devoted recent years to a collection of ongoing, interconnected bodies of fine art work. His minimal, abstract photographs are often made on the coast, usually late into the night, using a large-format film camera. 

Since opening his London studio in 2005, Thompson has been recognised and honoured by leading institutions. He has received both a Gold and Silver award from the Association of Photographers, two Silver and one Bronze award from Creative Circle, and a yellow pencil at D&AD. He has also exhibited three times at the National Portrait Gallery in London, and in addition to this was shortlisted in the Terry O’Neill Photography Award. 

Clients include Barclays, Discovery, Expedia, The Guardian, LG, EE, Lloyds, Mastercard, Natural History Museum, Nike, Playstation, Virgin Media & more.
