About Paul

I have been a professional photographer for over 30 years, during which time I have photographed over 3,000 social events and portraits. My style combines beautiful portraits with spontaneous images that capture the fun and joy of your special day. I work closely with my wife Caryn Benjamin, a photojournalist and artist, who does all of our graphic design. Together, we have lectured and presented our innovative ideas to groups of professional photographers around the country. We love keeping up with the latest technology and trends to keep our work fresh and creative.

Over the course of my career, I have received many awards and honors. At the annual judging by the Professional Photographers Society of New York State, I have won "Best Album" nine times since 1991. I have also been presented with five Fuji Masterpiece trophies, the PPSNYS Highest Print Score Plaque, six Courts of Honor, the New York State Premier Case Award and the prestigious Kodak Gallery Award. Many of my prints and albums have been honored with selection for the Professional Photographers of America Loan Collection, an exhibit that tours the country and the world. I have been featured in Shutterbug Magazine in the article "Top 8 Wedding Pros in America".

As a professional photographer, I am certified by the Professional Photographers of America, which guarantees that my photographic skills and technical expertise are of the highest level. I hold the degrees of Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman. I am a council member at the national and state levels, as well as an officer of the Professional Photographers of Greater New York. I am a member of the American Society of Photographers and Wedding and Portrait Professionals International.
