Phil began his artistic career at the age of 10 when he started painting in oils, he passed his ‘O’ level Art a year early, then went on to study photography at Bournemouth & Poole College of Art & Design. He then went on to work as an advertising photographer in London for 18 years.
Phil is well known for his beautiful lighting techniques, creativity, work ethic and attention to detail. He’s worked for a long list of household names during his career, shooting a huge variety of subjects, from still life and food to interiors, fashion and portraiture.
After a lot of soul searching, Phil decided to spread his wings and rediscover his own way of seeing again. He felt it was time to share how he feels and understands the world around us, from the beautifully simple things in life, like the journey of light cascading through leaves, on its way to kiss the ground; to deeper subjects that are close to Phil’s heart, our environment, our emotional selves and mental wellbeing.
Phil embraces a variety of contemporary printing techniques to present his work, including aluminium, dibond and fine art papers.
