I'm Phil and I've been a reportage or documentary style photographer for many years. My background is in electronics and sound but when I moved into film and then TV News I became much more aware that my personal photography style was able to transfer to photojournalism.
Documentary story telling in photography is about you and your day whether it's a wedding, portrait or special event, I'll be there to see the moments as they happen and add to the story of the day. Wedding days are special days when a couple get to spend time with their closest family and friends and I do like to make sure there is some time for a few group photographs and some private portraits. The day is about being you and enjoying your time together whilst I am looking for the moments that make up your day, the emotions which you will remember many years later when seeing the photographs of that moment in time captured for you and your family.
I like people and spending time watching, photographing and interacting as a guest with a camera means that many think I was a friend with a camera who came along.
That, well really just THAT, is why I enjoy being this photographer with a wealth of experience and an eye for the unusual; I love people watching and being able to catch the mood and intimate conection between people.
Welcome to my website please have a look, what I can do for you either as a portrait, wedding or event photographer. They are all one and the same thing, just add a little food photography, some fashion, architectural as well as car, clothing, flowers, bands and details and you really do have it all!
Get in touch with me here if you would like more information.
Take a moment to look at the Photofilm below and enjoy in full screen with volume up. One of my favourite things is to spend a little time and craft together a story of your day in images set to your first dance music. Please do ask about a Photofilm of your day.
