Photographer of the Week: Paul Muir

Based in Glasgow, Scotland, Paul Muir specializes in fashion, portrait and fetish photography.

He has several decades’ worth of experience as a photographer, but it’s only relatively recently, within the last ten years, that he has been shooting models.

There are now two main strands to his work. He shoots in nightclubs in Glasgow and Edinburgh, capturing images of people who aren’t ordinarily found in front of a camera. Here, for example, is a scene he encountered in 2013 at the Glasgow fetish club Violate:

And he also shoots with a selection of experienced models, mostly women, among them Karney Doll:

One day, Paul was photographing Karney at Glasgow’s premier burlesque venue, Club Noir, when Tina Warren just happened to be passing.

She found herself roped in to participate, with pleasing results:

Paul later jokingly remarked that he’d like to have Tina at more of his photo shoots – to make the models behave!
