My Occupation Professional Photographer
My Bio I am a full time professional photographer with over twenty years of experience. I currently have a studio gallery situated in the heart of the stunningly beautiful Saddleworth district in the Northwest of England. I undertake all aspects of commercial advertising and industrial photography using a high resolution digital back and 35mm digital SLR cameras.
I have also recently attained a Masters Degree in International Documentary, Travel and Photojournalism Photography at The University of Bolton. This has enabled me to pursue a longstanding admiration of documentary and reportage photography. The Arandora Star booklet is part of my recent and future exhibition held at Stockport Art Gallery, Cheshire, Another project in the pipeline is a documentary based upon The Palio in Siena, Tuscany, Italy. I spent a week recording the world famous horse race and spectacle, a coffee table book showing my work will hopefully appear her later on this year. Thank you for visiting. phil

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
The world famous Palio of Siena. A coffee table book documenting the build up in the city to the race, the pageant, the race and celebrations.
