Meet the Team
Paul Brook BA(Hons), ARPS
CEO of First Point Photography
Paul Brook studied at the prestigious Arts Institute, Bournemouth, and Sinar in Switzerland. As well as a degree in photography Paul also has his professional qualifying examination (PQE) from The British Institute of Professional Photographers (BIPP). Paul opened the studio in 1995 and built the business up to be a successful high street studio, establishing his style as a contemporary portrait and wedding photographer as well as in advertising and editorial. In 2002 the studio expanded and started photography seminars. The seminars were aimed at the keen amateur looking to develop their hobby into a full/part time business. Over the past 6 years the demand for the seminars has expanded dramatically, resulting in the opening of the photography school to run alongside the successful commercial studio.
Alice studied Photography and Postproduction at Brockenhurst college for 2 years.
After graduating, Alice worked as a freelance photographer in wedding photography, fashion and portraits. She has worked with clients such as L’Oréal, Hyatt Hotels and has had her work published in Vogue Italia.
Alice loves nothing more than sharing her knowledge of photography and postproduction with our students, helping them to develop their skills and creating their own style, ready for them to enter the world of professional commercial photography.
