A professional theatre and events photographer based in Bristol and Bath. With over ten years experience working amongst the performing arts, with an extensive catalogue of published work in various national newspapers. Working for regular clients including the Bristol Old Vic & Tobacco Factory Theatres alongside many theatre makers, production companies and festivals including MAYK, and The British Paraorchestra.

Paul Blakemore can capture the sublime and the ridiculous, the bizarre and the beautiful in equal measure, creating images that tell the story of a project and capture genuine emotions from audiences lost in a moment. Above all else, Paul is an absolute pleasure to work with.

Claire Doherty, Director of Situations & Arnolfini Bristol.

Paul Blakemore is a rare talent. His photography has a direct, felt connection to the liveness of his subjects. We are always thrilled by his responsive, beautiful, unusual, and sensitive images. Watching him in a shoot is a dance in itself. He just gets it - an artist with both discretion and a shrewd eye – he’s always the one we want to capture the magic.
