Paul Reiffer was born on 12 May, 1980. He is a British commercial and landscape photographer, having previously been a commercial male model. Despite having been a commercial photographer for many years and winning multiple awards, Paul gained specific media attention during his three year project focused on the Asia-Pacific region from 2012-2015.
From an early age Reiffer developed his interest in photography through spending time with his father, watching him develop images in a self-built darkroom in their family home.
This work saw him recognized with a Fellowship of the British Institute of Professional Photography as well as being presented with the UN/UNESCO “International Year Of Light” award for his images of Shanghai at night.
His signature iconic landscapes and City-Scapes have been published by National Geographic as well as the international press and used by tourism boards around the globe, while he continues to sell limited edition prints to collectors worldwide.
In 2016, his latest venture – a collaboration with hotel group PER AQUUM – resulted in his opening of the “world’s most exclusive photo gallery”, on the Maldivian island of Huvafen Fushi, where visitors can only access the exhibition by seaplane or speedboat.
Reiffer is a Fellow of the British Institute of Professional Photography and Associate of the Royal Photographic Society, having been accepted by both organisations for direct entry at an Associate level due to the breadth of his existing portfolio.
