We like Studio Lux because...

Claudine Hubert Directrice artistique OBORO "OBORO travaille avec Paul Litherland depuis plus de dix ans pour assurer la documentation de nos expositions. Outre sa disponibilité et sa fiabilité, Paul livre des images qui sont utiles tant à l’artiste qu’au centre. Il envisage les besoins de toutes les parties, qu’il s’agisse de documentation générale, de mise en valeur des espaces et des oeuvres, ou de détails. Lorsque nous présentons des installations cinétiques, il livre également des fichiers vidéo. Il se déplace avec ses équipements et s’assure que nous recevions les fichiers et planches contacts dans les jours suivant sa visite. Étant artiste lui-même, il approche les oeuvres de ses pairs avec un regard sensible et engagé."
Roxanne Arsenault Coordonnatrice à la programmation Centre Clark "Paul est tout ce que l’on souhaite chez un photographe : talentueux, enthousiaste, disponible et à l’écoute. Toujours souriant, il documente nos expositions avec précision et nous remet rapidement des images professionnelles qui font rayonner le travail des artistes."
Bill Burns Bill Burns visiting artist/faculty Yukon SOVA "We were so lucky to have Paul as our Visiting Artist at Yukon School of Visual Arts last winter. His generosity and acumen inspired our students to challenge themselves. The results were superb."
Tanya Mars Performance and Video Artist / faculty University of Toronto "Paul's photo documentation of my performance, Hommage to the City of Women: Leaves of Gold captured the essence of the work perfectly. His ability to blend in and get good images without distracting the audience or getting in the way of the performance was remarkable, and very much appreciated by me. I look forward to the next time we can work together! "
