About

Paul

My name is Paul, I am based in Ireland and I have been interested in astronomy, science and photography since I was young. In 2009, I won the Young Astronomy Photographer of the Year and I have had many of my photos published in Astronomy Ireland’s magazine, the Sky at Night magazine and on RTE.
