about paul curtis

I have been living in North Queensland since 1984 and visiting it regularly since 1975. One of my personal goals has been to become an authority on the out of the way places - the true North Queensland that many visitors hear about and come to see but rarely find anything more than the well worn tourist trails.

While this satisfies many, there are vast, almost untouched landscapes providing innumerable destinations where it is easy to feel immersed in a wilderness remote from regular human visitation. Hand in hand with this goal has been the objective of establishing the best wilderness image library of this part of the world.

I have resisted the temptation of travelling further afield as many photographers do once they feel the need for further inspiration. I believe in sticking with the territory you know - and to get to know it better. After many years I am still finding fascinating places and great sites for photography. The variety of landscapes within a short drive from my home base in Kuranda is enormous and within the pages of my book, images on display or perhaps a "phototour", I hope I can give you an appreciation of this country. Call me anytime as I am always enthusiastic to talk about my backyard.
