Phil's photographs are rich with images that are breath-taking, interesting and often tell a story. His scenic photos are wonderful and he has a way of capturing the light and with such clarity; that if you view large makes you feel as if you could be there. However, the thing I love about his photo stream are his portraits - Phil's passion is for taking photos of 'perfect strangers' - people he meets on the street - he has the ability to capture the essence of that person and can portray dignity, shyness, joy and many other emotions all in the blink of his shutter.
Nothing is too much trouble for him, he even helped explain apertures to me in simple language, (thanks Phil!) above all he is a thoroughly nice bloke and someone I am so pleased to have as my friend
I'm listening to Isao Tomita's arrangement of Debussy's Arabesque No.1 as I wander through your photostream. It's a perfect combination; it draws me to the image, making me wish I could pass into it and experience the moment wholly. Still, doing so vicariously is no small thing. It's an enviable record of an enviable moment. A tip of the hat to you for having posted such beautiful photographs!
Phil's photography has a quality that takes me back to my childhood living on the Eastern coast of the US. Not only does he take spectacular land/city scapes, but he also has an excellent portraiture portfolio as
well. He is a great inspiration to me and I am sure many others.
