My name is Paul W. Koester. I am a San Diego, California based photographer. I specialize in natural landscape and urban landscape photography. Both are rather opposite of each other and both feed the two sides of my creativity at various moments. The urban being gritty, dirty and imperfect, where nature is flawless and pure. There are times when I need more of one than the other but it all tends to balance out. I have a live/work studio in the East Village of San Diego where I primarily work on my photography and sculpture projects.
