Paul Maguire

Paul works as a freelance photographer and a film-maker of fiction and documentaries.  His work takes him all around Scotland; from adventures in the highland mountains to underwater filming with dancers.

As a young man in Dublin, Ireland he began to play with photography before discovering his interest in film.  In 2004 he moved to Edinburgh, Scotland to study film at Edinburgh College of Art.  Here his graduation film Pebble was nominated for best student film by BAFTA Scotland.

In the last few years Paul has returned to photography, and is currently developing an installation series that will transport you from a small town in the South of France, to an old port town in Scotland in a matter of steps.

Landscapes of empty spaces collide with a soundscape of the rhythms, voices and ambient sounds of the place to create a montage in the imagination of the viewer.  This immersive experience enables the viewer to create a portrait of the place.

Paul is also the founder and organiser of LowDef Film and Video, since 2009.

LowDef encourages the free production and distribution of micro short films made by anyone from complete beginners to professionals.  Using what he has learned from the LowDef, he now runs Digital Storytelling Workshops with community groups in conjunction with organisations that include Action for M.E. and Alchemy.
