    An image provoking tutor and a great photo walk of the marathon and the colourful punts. I've only just seen the guestbook and I was taught by Philip a couple of years ago. His demand for integrity I
    felt came a lot through being in his classes.

    Just had the benefit of seeing Oxford through Philips eyes but using my camera - a great day out with a whole new way of looking at familiar things. Many thanks.

    A diverse collection of inspiring photographs. Brilliant!

    I have found something I like in all of your galleries but the Street Life ones are my favourite. Opportune moments have enabled you to capture this uniqueness. I like the fact that the photo shots
    can't ever be repeated in most cases...they are 'of the moment' and that makes them really come to life. You can use your own imagine to create a story when you look at them. Brilliant.

    Fantastic website Phil.

  • Lisa Golds` (Sunday, April 15 12 08:50 pm BST)

    Had a lovely look at your photos and they are magnificent. I could almost see my vision of pictures of dead trees in your collection but I wouldnt know where to start. Great work

  • Maurici (Wednesday, April 04 12 08:48 pm BST)

    Some of the pics are already familiar, but yet, many wonderful surprises to discover ! Good place to get inspired, copy-pasting to my favourites.

  • Helen Webb (Wednesday, April 04 12 02:22 pm BST)

    Just had a look at your new stuff Phil - very nice. How long did it take to put it all together?

  • jeff coles (Tuesday, April 03 12 12:27 pm BST)

    About time you did this, nice one

  • Terry Lee (Tuesday, April 03 12 12:06 pm BST)

    Your ability to observe and add a touch of quirkiness and irony is to be admired and indeed envied. Congratulations - they are a wonderful set of images.

  • Alan Smith (Tuesday, April 03 12 11:41 am BST)

    Looks Great.

  • Shelagh Roberts (Tuesday, April 03 12 11:37 am BST)

    Very good show - congrats Phil

Exhibition at OUP

I am honoured to be invited to exhibit at OUP, with a small selection of pictures from my work on gipsy horse fairs. The exhibition will run throughout January 2018.

RPS Visual Art Group


I was delighted to accept an invitation from Jay Charnock FRPS to be one of the three selectors for the 2017 exhibition by the Visual Art Group of the Royal Photographic Society. We had a splendid array of pictures to choose from and doing this with co-selectors Cathy Roberts FRPS and Lucilla Phelps FRPS was a pleasure.

I am thrilled at my success in the Marwell Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.

All winning entries will be displayed in an outdoor exhibition in the grounds of the zoo. My prize is a free annual membership. More details will appear on Marwell’s website in due course:

It was great fun to be an invited member of a judging panel that assessed the level of photographic creativity demonstrated by participants in a research study lead by Dalena Van Heugten of Oxford University's Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences. Dalena's paper has been published in Frontiers in Psychology and can be read here. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing how all the photographers involved had risen to the daily challenge of submitting one picture taken on a theme emailed to them each morning.

I am delighted that my picture "The Butcher" has been selected for the 2015 Members’ Biennial Exhibition, which will tour the UK during 2015. Only 100 images have been selected for the exhibition from 3,284 images submitted worldwide, so it is a very pleasing achievement. You can see all the winning pictures here.

It's great to have an image in the Creativity feature in the Dec 14 issue of PhotoPlus!
