Paul Ernest


Paul Ernest began his career in advertising design in 1993 after receiving his BFA at the University of North Texas. Having been brought up in a family of fine artists and writers, Paul decided to pursue his love of photography and storytelling imagery. He began to experiment with a style combining composite photography with visually tactile elements and a warm color palette. Combining his passion for storytelling, Paul released his first image entitled Chasing Butterflies in 2009. Since then Paul has gone on to create numerous collections telling stories of healing, growth and inspiration. He was selected as the Professional Photographers Association (PPA) International Photographic Competition Diamond Award winner the first year he entered in 2012 and again in 2015. He is a WPPI Grand Award Winner with over 24 WPPI awards. He attained Master Photographer within 17 months of joining PPA as well has his Image of Excellence award in 2015. He also is a WPPI Double Master. We live through stories... stories that are handed down to us through seasons and generations. We are inspired by stories and live to write our own narrative and our own contribution of life to tell. Paul Ernest
