Phill is great to work with - creative and thoughtful, yet never a creative primadonna! Phill is great with people and really does get the best from a bad situation. I have worked with Phill for many years on projects ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous! There is little he can't turn his hand too, and his professionalism is never in doubt. Phill also has exceptional Photoshop skills.
We’ve worked with Phill for over 20 years and have always been impressed with his highly-committed, enthusiastic and innovative approach to our briefs. Always ready to suggest different and quirky ways of doing things, Phill has consistently delivered top quality results which have enhanced the delivery of our Corporate Communications materials.

"Phill is top of our list of photography partners. He adds huge value to the output of any project with his creative vision and experience. He’s also open and flexible, able to deliver shots exactly to brief, and goes about every project with a relaxed and friendly efficiency that gets the images set up and nailed fast. We’d recommend him unreservedly."
“Phill has a very relaxed approach which puts nervous subjects quickly at ease as well as an imaginative eye to make the best of the possibilities available. Some wrongly believe that capturing a decent image has been made a lot easier by technology but in reality it’s not just the equipment, it’s the professional skills of the person using that camera which makes for the full package. Phill is one of those rare people who really makes the camera work for him.”

Phill is quite simply one of the best photographers we've ever used, covering all the bases we look for: first of all, he's very creative, bringing a novel, dynamic approach and an eagerness to do something new with every shot; he's fast, not only in setting up but in getting the image, with a clear vision of what he's after; and his professional attitude projects a strong sense of a cohesive team when working with our clients.
We would have no reservation in recommending him."

It is both flattering and unnerving when a client commissions work while dictating that we use Phill again! He manages to combine three essential if unrelated criteria’s: photographic excellence, value and a likeable personality.
We look forward to photographic shoots with Phill –What more can you say.
John Argent MD
Phill's work for MBUK has been some of the most visually striking in recent times. He's relatively new to the world of Editorial Photography but has burst onto the scene with maximum impact!
Its great to see someone with a passion for detail, composition, lighting and hard work. His self initiated as well as commissioned work is some of the finest to grace the pages of our magazine. We always look forward to receiving his latest work to see what he has created next!
Always fresh and exciting fulfilling the brief every time.

Phill's integrity and commitment to get the result I want is always spot on. He listens and understands what I am looking for.
He works with me rather than for me.
Greg Dyer MD
Phill has that rare quality that sets him apart from most photographers, the ability to see a shot in great detail in his head and to be able to work out exactly how he’s going to shoot it with the composition and lighting arrangements.
It is this creative vision that adds another dimension to our own creativity, which we value highly at Axis.

We enjoy how Phill interprets our creative ideas and adds his own to ensure the brief is exceeded - whatever the challenge. We've taken him from the top of the tallest building in the Uk to being laid on his back in a field of cows in Somerset and we get great results every time.
Mark Gardner MD
Phill's work has remained constant creative and of exceptionally high quality. During the literally ‘hundreds’ of projects we have worked on together over the years, he has never failed to deliver excellent results, even with me looking over his shoulder!
I look forward to seeing him solve future projects in his own customary style.
Paul Martin MD
Phill has been our specialist photographer for many years. We depend on him totally for his help and guidance in the key visual area of representing Wrigley photographically.
Phill's expertise in creating images to faithfully reproduce a range of true colours has been invaluable. His caring for quality issues and his willingness to go the ‘extra mile’ to meet deadlines has always been appreciated.
