An independent and freelance contemporary photographer with a philosophy to pursue and enjoy photography as an art form.
With a passion for capturing challenging and unusual imagery, Philip secured a position as the music photographer for Rant magazine where he was tasked to capture the exciting atmosphere of live music. The opportunity enabled him to photograph many leading acts which led to the publication of his images nationally and internationally. Korg, USA selected Philip’s work as the sole imagery for one of their world-wide advertising promotions.
During 2009 Philip embarked on a project to capture the traditional “junk shop” with their myriad of objects chaotically organised. ”Where can you buy?” was successfully submitted for Associateship at the Royal Photographic Society and still continues as a work in progress.
Philip’s later projects include :-
“Remnants of Defence” and Solent Forts, are projects which sets out to capture some of the mystery behind the Victorian coastal defence forts built to defend Portsmouth Harbour from the perceived French invasion by Napoleon III.
“Curiosity”, a view into the dark and surreal world of curiosities which are actually for sale.
Philip’s work has been featured in national and local media with photographic articles published in both the Antiques Trade Gazette and the Antiques Explorer magazines
