- Randall is now a photographer and here his own biography from his website, RandallPaul.com -

I started photographing people and images in 1978 at the age of 21 in Los Angeles, where I was studying my theatrical arts as a young actor. Although I was studying film making, I loved the visual impact of a single frame and still do to this day. Although I spent most of my working life in front of the camera, I utilized this great opportunity to watch the professionals do their magic as I knew one day I would be behind the camera as a professional..

Being involved over those years working in several countries introduced me to such photographers as David Bailey, Bruce Weber, Bob Krieger, Helmut Newton and a host of others.

This at the time was overwhelming to be in the presence of such greats, specially Milan based Bob Krieger who I worked with for several campaigns. His style, execution and work ethic always amazed me. Simplistic although highly stylized, Bob's work lacked gimmick or design sensationalism. His opinion was a great photograph didn't need all the fluff behind it, a bad photograph did. Interesting to gather those opinions, suggestions and anecdotes for which I have many over the years. Bob's work afforded me to carry on working with Hugo Boss, HOM, Lynx, Ambre Solaire, Burberry's etc.. Again being in this work environment taught me what no university could and confirmed to me this is where I wanted be as a creative pro.

The years went by and the work experienced continued in full force for both photographic and film work. Working on countless commercial projects with the most renowned advertising agencies and working with film directors Stanley Kubrick, Brian De Palma, Jean-Marie Poire etc. and the talented lighting directors and directors of photography that accompanied those projects was certainly invaluable. This enlightened my sense of understanding of visual dynamics and the high standards of production values required. Outside of special effects the one thing I learnt was that less was more, developing a critical eye and detail and style was everything. So I am looking forward to finally doing what I have wanted to do for a very long time!
