Hi, I'm Phil.
I love being a photographer, to me this isn't a job its a passion. I knew the moment my first black & white print emerged in the red light of the college darkroom that this was what I wanted to do.
I graduated with HND Photography in 1996 , and learnt my trade as a trainee at the Lincolnshire Echo.
In 1998 I moved to London and worked with a press agency for a couple of years using cutting edge digital cameras , covering news and features for the national press, before heading north to Scotland , where I freelanced until 2001 when I was given a job at the Scotsman newspaper based in Edinburgh. After a long and award winning career at the Scotsman , I made the move to freelance again in April 2014.
Now based just south of Edinburgh on the edge of the Scottish Borders , I work across Scotland and Northern England, using my experience to provide a professional service over a wide range of styles, including wedding photography, portrait photography, press and PR Public Relations, marketing, property and food and hospitality.
I also offer a video production service, creating imaginative web video for business and editorial. It’s now affordable to use short films to enhance the look of your business and customer experience.
Please take a few moments to view my work and give me a call or email if I can help in any way. Thanks for your time.
