Paul Wing has perfected his photographic style over 30 years behind film and video cameras in television broadcasting. His work has been recognized by many professionals in the field, including ACTRA, RTNDA, and the Canadian Society of Cinematographers, which awarded Paul its prestigious national Best Cinematography/News Essay five times.

Recently Wing turned his full attention to his first love, still photography, with intriguing results. His approach is as varied as his subject matter, from glowing landscapes to urban studies. His photos have been described as “ethereal,” “mysterious,” and “painterly.”

Wing aims to be non-literal when framing a shot so the viewer can appreciate the abstract qualities of the subject. He pushes the process even further through digital enhancement seeking that bridge between photography and graphics.

Wing's work has been accepted into juried exhibitions and artist tours and he has mounted four solo showings in the last three years. His work is becoming increasingly popular with collectors, with photos now in private collections in Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and St. Catharines. He has completed photographic commissions and donated works to numerous charitable causes. He has also taught at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario and Algonquin College in Ottawa, Ontario.
