Dave Paddy, or Paddy as he prefers to be known, began his working life at Aerospace in Broughton near Chester, after graduating as an aeronautical engineer, Paddy decided to return to full time education and enrolled at the university of Derby to studied for a B.A Hons. in Photography under the tutelage of such leading photographers as John Blakemore, Richard Sadler and Olivier Richon.
After leaving Derby, Paddy went on to become a Lecturer in Photography, Graphics and New Media at Yale College in Wrexham, one of the leading FE colleges in the country. During this time his work was exhibited both nationally and internationally and he continued to work as a freelance photographer and designer.
Fifteen years later, after guiding a many students through their course work and on to higher education and promising careers in the arts, Paddy took a leap of faith and left full-time employment to concentrate on his own photography and fine art practice.
He now lives near the beautiful town of Llanrwst in North Wales and runs Tilt and Shift gallery and darkroom with his partner Eleri Griffiths, herself an award winning photographer.
Please do contact me if you want to discuss anything photographic or if you wish to purchase any of the work on the site.
