Paul Harcourt Davies, photographer and author, specialises in close up and macro photography, focussing on portraying plants in their landscape. Mediterranean and alpine ecology is his special area of study. His first book Wild Orchids of Britain & Europe was published in 1983 and his latest is an ebook with Clay Bolt: Wideangle Macro : The Essential Guide. To date, he has authored nineteen books.

Paul has been based in Italy since 2003 where he and partner Lois have renovated an old farm. Together they run nature, cultural and photography tours and workshops. He was winner of the International Garden Photographer of the Year (2013) portfolio plus Royal Society of Photography gold medal. His images have been exhibited internationally and were used on a set of orchid stamps in Cyprus.

He is deeply committed to education in photography and especially in making techniques of macro photography accessible for use in conservation. With Clay Bolt he runs the blog "Learn macro".
