Had a shoot with Phil in his home studio yesterday and had a fun and productive afternoon. Phil knows his trade inside out and has fresh and creative ideas. If you want to work with someone who is professional and courteous and get some outstanding pictures then I would highly recommend Phil. I hope to work with him again in the near future :)

Just had a magificent shoot with this lovely professional photographer.

As soon as I turned up he made me at ease straight away!

Such a pleasure to work with, not being afraid to share your input. Sharing ideas and working as a team, which was brilliant! Not going click click with the camera but sitting back n deciding what to do.

Highly recomended!

Phil booked me for a shoot on my recent trip to Sheffield. And I can't recommend him enough! Communications running up to the shoot were great, and he passed on all of the details that I needed for planning my travel on the day, and also what to bring for the shoot.

Phil is a lovely man and I felt very comfortable and well looked-after. I had a brilliant afternoon and I really appreciate the hospitality that Phil and his wife showed towards me on the day. He picked me up and dropped me back off at the station afterwards. And made sure I'd had something to eat after the shoot too. A really respectful person to work with and I recommend him very highly.

Thanks a million Phil!

Today was one of the best shoots I have had. Phil was very helpful when booking the shoot, giving me times of trains and platforms, and picking me up from the station. His hospitality was amazing and made me very comfortable. I was amazed at how quickly we both relaxed and achieved some great images from the very start, and he is without a doubt one of the easiest photographers to get along with. The images were stunning and I was on a high the whole way home. It was a real pleasure working with such an honest and reliable man, and I cant wait to work with him again. x

Just this minute got in from an awesome shoot (possibly my best shoot yet) with Phil and couldn't wait to get on here and write a sterling recommendation. From the moment i arrived i was made the feel welcome and the mood remained comfortable throughout the shoot. Phil's pre shoot communications were great and his direction during the shoot is first class. The studio is lovely and cosy and there were lots of possible places to pose for pictures. The changing room was spacious and private and i even had dinner. Also got a disc with proofs straight away to take home from the shoot. Lots and lots of amazing images will definitely be working with him again. Its great when everything flows so smooth. Thanks a lot for a great day/shoot.

Well, two batterys and 20gb of memory later and all I can do is praise Phil's efforts. He is one of those photographers who has an ability to make a model feel completly comfortable. He constantly ensured I was happy working to my levels and was quick to point out if I was exposing to much (implied nude shoot). Whist ever the gentleman, phil was also a brilliant photographer. He allowed me to model with out interfering to much and gave direction when needed. Our shoot lasted 6 hours and his creativeness and eagerness never wained. Highly recommended and guarrenteed happy shooting. Thanks Phil!

The shoot was conducted in a very professional manner. I was impressed with Phil's wire prop, something different to my usual outings, such great ideas that day. I am stunned with what we have created and can't stop looking at the images.

I can't wait for the opportunity to work with Phil again, his skills combined with his creativity make the outcome all the more special. I highly recommend him to future models.

Working with Phil a few days ago was a great experience and I'm sincerely grateful to him for that. I'm not even sure where to start for fear of not doing his good nature and his talent justice. He was very patient with me before (scheduling etc.) during and even after the shoot. His professional, yet friendly and enthusiastic approach to it was outstanding, which enabled me to feel confident and enjoy the session. I like the pictures that came out of it very much and was humbled by his imagination, his photographic skills and his tolerance regarding my own input. You don't get to work with people as lively, admirable or likeable as Phil often and if you do get that wonderful chance I hope you make the best of it and don't waste his time! He's also very well-organized as a photographer, which is obviously quite instructive. The space where we shot was great in terms of versatility, but also cosy and practical.
In a word, I cannot imagine Phil running out of ideas and I would dearly recommend working with him - I'd love to have another chance to do so in the future.
