Paul Pichugin: Hi, I’m Paul Pichugin. I’m a dad to 3 awesome daughters, fortunate husband to the best wife anyone could ask for, proud brother to a sister who is doing amazing things, and a son to some pretty incredible parents. I also take photos for a living.
I’ve been fortunate enough to work on travel and landscape photography projects in every state in Australia, 17 countries and Antarctica in the last few years. I absolutely love what I do, I often have to pinch myself and remind myself that this *isn’t* a dream!
Some of the experiences I’ve had include kayaking and snorkelling in Antarctica, night kayaking amongst the bio-luminescence in Tasmania and hiking through blizzards in the Tasmanian mountains, aerial photography in Queensland, Dubai and all over Western Australia to camping all through Iceland & Norway and with Bedouin in Jordan, riding horses around the Great Pyramids of Egypt.
One of my other main passions is volunteering and working with Non-Profit Organisations to help raise awareness for their causes and funds for their projects. I support Awareness Cambodia, a charity for children orphaned by HIV. I also work with The Giving Lens, founded by Colby Brown, as a workshop instructor and team leader. This involves leading a team of photographers through developing nations, teaching photography and volunteering with local NGOs.
