London based director & photographer Paul McLean launched his career experimenting with photography while studying film. As his work was quickly recognized in the fashion world, photography became his primary focus. Paul has photographed campaigns for some of the industry’s biggest brands, including Fendi, Cartier, Vogue, Tommy Hilfiger, Lanvin, Hugo Boss, Swarovski and Harper’s Bazaar.
Paul’s cinematic style and inspiration derived from film lead him to direct and lens numerous commercials for clients such as Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Volkswagen, Hugo Boss and Jimmy Choo.
Recently, his film work for Magazine Girls. Girls. Girls. with Actor Cynthia Nixon narrating has gained him attention. The fashion film for the #MeToo generation combines powerful words with a barrage of imagery to underscore women’s plight in modern society.
His perspective is intimate, honest and matter-of-fact, yet provocative and socially minded.
