Paul Velasco “I have covered many major international sporting events such as Olympic Games, Formula 1, Champions League, Le Mans, Athletics, Basketball, Skating, Horse Racing etc. for newspapers and agencies such as Reuters and Associated Press.
My love for sport means that I am equally at home photographing sports at the highest level as well as amateur to kids level.
I was fortunate to be able to progress seamlessly into the role of Photo Editor after my spell in the field, and was privileged to have worked as Photo Editor at a number of major publications.
During this period I became an expert in digital photography while developing and mastering digital image management tools.
One of my biggest strengths is motivating and coaching photographers of all levels, while the photo editor in me is capable of inspiring great photography from them.”
