About Paula

I’m Paula, I'm based in Exeter, Devon in the UK

I have worked all over the world. My mission is to bring the joy of the outdoors to your indoors. Particularly at the moment as we can’t travel where we like so I hope my photographs transport you out of your everyday life into some special places.

Until coronavirus appeared I was happily running my studio photography business full time but during Lockdowns 2020 I rediscovered my first loves of photography, the outdoors and nature. This time has allowed me to put together some collections of my photographs in "My Wild Side" collection of limited edition prints.

Finding myself with a bit more time on my hands I studied for my A2 Certificate of Competence which enables me to fly my camera drone safely and legally. I have discovered a whole new world.

Please get in touch if you have a project requiring drone photography to talk about your requirements. 

A full days contract starts from £500.

Paula Fernley ARPS is an international award winning photographer, and a past finalist in the UK Landscape Photographer of the Year competition. 

In the pre covid world I combined my fascination with photography and my love of babies to become a leading newborn photographer. My images are designed to have a timeless elegance based on the purity of the lighting and simplicity of poses. I want to help you celebrate your new baby with art.

As lockdown restrictions ease this is something I wish to return to. I've had my first vaccination so thats a step in the right direction.

I’ve been trained by some of the best newborn photographers in the country, including Melanie East who is a staunch advocate of safe practice,Tobias Robbins and Ellie Cassidy.

I love working with people hearing their stories and capturing it forever. This is the same for whatever genre of photography I'm involved with. I used to be a dentist, I'm a people person and want everyone to feel relaxed and enjoy their session. Clients have commented on my patience over the years. I give you everything I can to provide you with the experience you deserve.

Paula combines total calm and a brilliant eye to create exquisite photography.

A mum, Exeter
