Paul is a freelance writer, photographer and editor, and former Wanderlust managing editor. Having spent 15 years working in travel and natural-history publishing, he’s realised that he doesn’t really believe ‘travel’ exists as a pastime – it’s something that happens while you’re in the process of pursuing your real passions and goals (in his case, writing, hiking, watching wildlife, sometimes diving and, more often than not, over-eating).
Paul’s words and pictures have been published in numerous travel guidebooks, broadsheets and magazines, recounting various highs (climbing Mt Kenya, husky-sledding in Arctic Sweden, trekking between Himalayan villages in India, walking between safari camps in Zambia, tracking pandas in China) and literal lows (delving into Belize’s caves and cenotes, diving with sealions off New Zealand).
