Philip started his career in the film industry, lighting feature films, and episodic television. He then moved into commercial photography and fine art photography. When he made this transition, he was most passionate about imagery with a strong narrative.
In the film industry, they had systems that had been developed in Hollywood over the last century – these systems weren’t as prevalent in photography. When he transitioned into photography applying these “Hollywood” systems to a remarkably similar art form allowed him to tackle more complex projects with relative ease. Focusing on the process ensured a decent end result. This method allows him to focus on the creative and spend more of his time enjoying the collaborative process of photography with other talented artists and technicians.
