I'm Phil, I'm 40 years old and currently living in Shrewsbury in Shropshire with my beautiful wife Holly. We got married in August 2011 at Hawkstone Park Hotel, which was the happiest day of my life. We have two children together, the first is Harry and he was born in March 2013 & the second is Jack born in December 2015. Hopefully in 20 years or so they will be working with me doing what I love the most....taking photographs! I also have another son, Leo and he has already developed a keen interest in photography, so a family empire could be on the cards.
My love for photography started many years ago when I got my first SLR camera. I absolutely loved what I could do with it, I took it everywhere with me and took some amazing photos.
Over the years I found that my favourite thing to photograph was people, it did not matter if it were adults or children, I just loved having my camera to capture those special moments that could then be cherished forever.
For many years I took my camera to the weddings of family and friends and everytime I did I couldn't resist but to keep clicking that shutter. The feedback I recieved was wonderful, one friend even commented that she prefered my photos to her professional photographers'.
My first son was born in 2002 and that was just another excuse to carry my camera around. I was still shooting on film back then and was spending a small fortune getting film developed, but if I hadn't of done that then I wouldn't have so many photos of my little boy growing up. Instead I have thousands and it is so nice to look back through them.
A few years later I decided it was time to go Digital! I debated over which camera to go for but in the end I stuck with Canon, most of my lenses were Canon so it made sense. The great thing about digital is that I could take even more photos, especially at weddings without the worry of the cost to develop my films.
It was still a few years before I made the leap to become a professional photographer and I have to say it was the best decision I have made. I love what I do, it doesn't matter if it's a wedding, a newborn baby shoot, portrait session, a pet portrait or just out with the family. I get to meet some truely wonderful people and get to take some beautiful photographs.
So now you know more about me, I hope you'll continue to look through my website and enjoy what you see.
