My name Is Paul Cowled and I am the founder and photographer in charge of Photos By Cowz.
I started my photographic journey in the Australian Army as a Military Police Special Investigator and Scenes of Crime Examiner. After 15 years in the Army and nearly 10 in Corrections (USA and Australia), I have finally retired to follow my passion.
My favorite genre of photography is landscapes and travel, but I have found a niche that I appear to be good at – Glamour, Fine Art and Boudoir Photography.
I live and work in the Australian Capital Territory, where is no shortage of beautiful people to photograph, as well as stunning vistas and landscapes to capture.
My aim is to empower those that I shoot with confidence and acknowledgement of their inner beauty.
PS….. Cowz comes from the Army, where it was my nickname
Boudoir photography is a photographic style featuring intimate, romantic, and sometimes erotic images of its subjects in a photographic studio, bedroom or private dressing room environment, primarily intended for the private enjoyment of the subject and his or her romantic partners.
It is distinct from glamour and art nude photography in that it is usually more suggestive rather than explicit in its approach to nudity and sexuality, features subjects who do not regularly model, and produces images that are not intended to be seen by a wide audience, but rather to remain under the control of the subject.
It is common for women to have boudoir photographs of themselves made as a gift to a partner, conventionally on the occasion of their engagement, marriage,or before an enforced separation such as a military deployment. In the UK it became popular for brides-to-be to commission photo-shoots as a wedding gift for the groom.
Boudoir photography is also sometimes given as a gift with the intention of re-affirming and encouraging the romance and sensuality between partners in a long-term relationship. Increasingly, boudoir photography is seen as something that a person might do purely for their own enjoyment, for the pleasure and affirmation of seeing themselves as attractive, daring, sensual, and sexually-desirable
