Paul Gero is a photographer and author and has been a working professional for over 33 years.

He is the author of the best-selling book “Mastering Digital Wedding Photography” and has also published “The Kids of Ladera Ranch” (2008) and “The Kids of Orange Country” (since 2009), a charity fund-raising photographic book project that has raised over $60,000 for Children’s Hospital of Orange County.

He is a Sony Artisan of Imagery (sponsored by Sony) and speaks and writes frequently on the use of Sony mirrorless cameras and making the transition from DSLR cameras to mirrorless cameras.

He has been a wedding and portrait photographer since 2002. Prior to that he spent 19 years in daily journalism and staff photographer positions for The Chicago Tribune (in Chicago and in the paper’s Washington, D.C. bureau), and The Arizona Republic in Phoenix. In addition, he has been widely published in magazines such as Time, People, US News & World Report, Newsweek, Fortune, and Sports Illustrated.

When he’s not photographing families and children, you can find him cheering on his kids Kate and Sparky at their soccer and baseball games. They might just be the most photographed kids in the entire country!

He and his wife Nick reside in Ladera Ranch. California, about halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego. Nicki is originally from South Africa and she and Paul met at a mutual friends’ wedding in 2000. They were married a year later.
