Paul Scala is an Australian-born, London-based beauty, fashion and portrait photographer - regularly featured in international publications including GQ, Numéro Homme, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.  


Paul brings his love for both cinema and stage to his work as he combines natural light with studio lighting to achieve his distinctive style. His images often convey a rich atmosphere where his subjects become part of a painting with light. 


Paul has worked with global brands such as Hugo Boss, Karl Lagerfeld, The Australian Ballet, Lancôme, Liberty London, DSquared2, Shiseido and L'Oréal.  His portrait subjects span fashion, music, film and sports and have included designers Viktor & Rolf, Daphne Guinness, Stephen Jones, Sandy Powell, and Dean & Dan Caten, musicians Shawn Mendes, Jessie Ware and Rosie Lowe, actors Gwendoline Christie, Brenton Thwaites, Noah Taylor, Ella Balinska, Miranda Kerr, Riz Ahmed and Jason Momoa.  His sports personalities include Pep Guardiola, Gianluigi Buffon, Antoine Greizmann and Anthony Joshua.


Paul's first publication ‘birds & boys’ portrays an intimate and striking study of the juxtaposition between male and avian beauty. The series of images explores masculine beauty, stripped back and raw.
