Paul Smith

“Its really no surprise I find myself surrounded by, and sometimes encased, in plants and flowers” says Paul Smith of Supergoat media. His photography of garden plants, particularly food plants has become a trademark feature of his work. Holding qualifications in both commercial cookery (chef) and audio engineering explains both the obsession with food in its most basic form, and also the technical background to eek the most out of the data once recorded.

“We are all a product of our past, and invest that history into our future” he says reflecting on a decade in the professional audio/video industry followed by 25 years as a chef and multi award winning cafe owner. “My life now behind the camera ties both those things together as I film the produce we once harvested to cook in the cafe”. Truth is he has been filming food and produce for 20 years in some form or another. “I always handled the cafes photography”.

Although Supergoat media, Paul’s photography and video business, (established Jan 2018 after the sale of their cafe) covers a range of visual styles from corporate video, event and campaign photography and social media content it’s his recent photographic work involving manipulated macro plant and flower shots that have caught attention. “They have an almost impressionist or watercolour quality about them. Often pastel and muted hues, perfectly suited for display in home or corporate environments”

Paul’s work is all about bringing the outside inside. Whether its the artistic ‘watercolour’ style images, or detailed macro shots, they are designed to reveal something not usually seen or to unapologetically glorify a common garden plant when framed in a new way. They fit so neatly into the ‘biophilic’ (our attraction to the natural world) style of architecture.
