It’s the 1950s, cameras were becoming more affordable. PAUL PLAINE is nine-years-old, and an uncle gives him one of his cameras. It is that moment that would lead Plaine to a lifelong career in photography. In the Army, he buys his first Nikon F 35mm camera. After being discharged and instead of returning to college, Plaine decides to attend photography school. Upon finishing school, he soon starts to work freelance in studios for photographers doing photoshoots for advertising. It is that first year that leads to a 37-year career working in advertising. For the past 15 years, he has been traveling photographing ballparks professionally and for pleasure. Today, Paul’s photography and his previous work have been and are still used in advertising, documentaries, and publications.
