Welcome to my Blog!

Hello, thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.  Feel free to send me an email or leave a comment. 

I have been practicing commercial photography in Denver since 1995.  Before moving to Colorado, I was working in the Detroit area.  Back in those days, the auto industry was doing pretty good and I got a lot of experience working for the big car studios but my wife and I wanted to try living out west.  We packed up our little cars and moved to the Denver area.  After living in a tent for a month, we found housing and our own niches in the photography world.  That seems like a long time ago, we now have two kids, a dog and a mortgage.

My passion in photography is creating images of people on location.  I love the fast paced challenge of going into different environments and making interesting portraits.  In contrast, I have also come love the slower pace of architectural photography.  There is a different set of challenges and it is more about planning and coming up with a clear strategy. 

Thanks again for visiting, come back often and hopefully I will be faithful to the true spirit of the blog and have interesting images and words to share.  Cheers, Paul Wedlake

Lasers, hot oil & flying shards of metal

I had an interesting time trying to capture photos at Mountainside Medical. The shot list consisted of portraits, facility shot, studio table top, individual machines and fine art shots of the manufacturing processes. To get the last images, my camera was about ten inches away from a laser welder, shoved though a safety hatch where […]

Night of the Hunter

I had a great opportunity to work on the reissuing of the a 1953 thriller novel by Davis Grubb called “The Night of the Hunter”.  The book will published by Centipede Press in the spring.   They made a great black and white movie with Robert Mitchum and Shelley Winters in 1955.  Pretty creepy movie, […]

Poetic Synthesis

      I jumped on board to do a collaboration project with the Lowry Gallery about a month ago.  They paired 12 artists with 12 writers and called the show Poetic Synthesis.  I was assigned the only short story in the lot and I was the only photographer who participated.  It was a great […]
