My name is Phillip Jeffrey. I'm a PhD student at UBC (on med leave of absence).

Living with Multiple Myeloma (blood cancer).

From Feb-Nov 2013 I was on Velcade chemo treatment, my 4th chemo treatment since my cancer diagnosis.

I use photography for health and healing.

You can follow my Cancer adventures on my blog:

My previous photo project is called Cancer 365, in which I will shared 365 creative photographs that represent what it is like to have cancer.

News Media: feel free to use any CC licensed photo, but you must give photo attribution to me - Phillip Jeffrey - Failure to do so, will result in consequences.

You don't need to ask permission, but I'd appreciate a comment or an email letting me know how/where you used the photograph.

If you use a photo for any purpose, I'd love to know about it too so please send me a message or write a comment.


My toys are a Canon EOS 450D (Rebel XSi) I call Sebastien, a Canon 50mm 1.4 USM, 50mm 1.8, a 85mm 1.8, and a Canon 580EXII flash.

I am always willing to learn from other photographers. Let's chat. I live at UBC.

I love photography and hope one day to be cancer-free.
