Greetings, I am Paul Myers, a Kauai, Hawaii based documentary wedding photographer, multimedia journalist and educator.
My photographs celebrate the milestones of life through documentary images, whether with moment-rich lifestyle images or compelling portraiture.
What interests me is photographing people in the face of life transitions. That intimate intersection of time. light and emotion.
Before moving to Kauai with my wife Janice, I taught visual storytelling on Faculty in Visual Journalism at Brooks Institute of Photography and worked as a Creative Contributor for Story4.org. My courses included classes on truthful visual storytelling with multimedia. One of the most exciting parts of the job was working with the students as the executive producer(2008-2011)for the yearly Brooks Institute International Documentary Project that travels to a foreign country. Our legacy products were all student generated and included a documentary film, dvd, book, website and print gallery exhibits.
My short-form multimedia productions have appeared on the web sites of USA Today (USAtoday.com) and the San Jose Mercury News (mercurynewsphoto.com). I am also on the Advisory Board at Pierce College for the Media Art’s Program.
Prior to working at Brooks, I photographed for a variety of publications including newspapers in Freeport, Il and Marysville, CA. During this time I continually photographed for El Andar, a bilingual magazine that covered cultural events and news issues concerning the Latino Community in the United States and Latin America.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at the photos.
