I take photographs because I enjoy taking photographs. For me there is no other reason. I think photography is important. It can educate, inform, entertain, enlighten and on occasion reduce people to tears of joy or sorrow.

I lecture at a university in the South East of the UK where I teach, amongst other things, photography. I also deliver a number of workshops on photography and editing elsewhere.

I'm based in London but like to travel around the UK when I get the chance to take photographs of interesting people and places. I do like wide open spaces.

I particularly enjoy working with dancers and you can see some of my dance photographs in the set here or on my web site.

You might also like to look at the photographs that I think are my most interesting and the ones that other people think are the most interesting. I am constantly bemused by the Flickr Interestingness feature.

I'm happy to answer questions about any of the photographs in my stream. There are normally some lighting details included but if you want to know anything else then please drop me a line here or through my web site.

Without wanting to suck all the joy out of everything I probably should say the usual stuff so…

Blah, blah, blah published, blah blah, international, blah blah copyright, blah blah ask first, blah, blah, blah.

My photographs are represented by Getty Images and Demurez Cover Arts.

I also like crisps.

    "A perfect gentleman, Phil always kept his hands to himself and never goosed me like other photographers I could mention.

    He is also a whiz with a camera and takes great photos of dancers.

    Its true, he does like crisps"
