The Peak District National Park must be one of the most beautiful places in England, but it is oddly hard to capture on film. What makes it so difficult is it is a landscape of great character, unusually for a national park, communities still live within it. It a place where nature meets mankind and this needs to be presented when photographing it. It must not just be a shot of scenery. The photograph needs to reflect its physical and spiritual essence. Phil as a photographer, wonderfully seems to be able to do this.

Phil was a delightful photographer to work with and produced some of the best photographs of me that I’ve had taken – and somehow without taking thousands of pictures! He’s a talented and pleasant man, and I highly recommend him

Having worked with Phil on a regular basis for a mutual client, I have been consistently impressed with his attention to detail in his photographs. Phil is efficient and very organised in his work and I would recommend him for any form of Landscape, commercial & lifestyle photography.

We just wanted to thank you again for a really useful, informative and enjoyable day on Sunday. Your coaching in the use of the camera was first rate and we really value the follow-up email and advice. I’m sure we’ll be tapping into your expertise again in the future.
“We have used Phil a couple of times for our internal holiday cottages shots. We highly recommend him, he worked within our time slots and produced some fantastic photographs for our website, he is very creative and always seeks to find the best shot. Best of all he took the time to understand our needs and what ‘image’ we were looking for… Excellent work.”
Stephen Ogan, Blakelow Farm Holiday Cottages
“Phil is a superb landscape photographer with his Peak District Photography and web designer. I’ve worked with Phil on numerous projects and he has developed my websites from scratch. He is a total professional and nothing is too much trouble. He has produced some brilliant landscape calendars and is working on other calendar projects with Shhmedia Calendars to produce made to order Calendars such as my Calendar of model, Zara Watson. Phil is now producing a fine art website for me as a print sales site. I am looking forward to working with him more.”
“Phil has delivered Peak District photography tuition on some of our guided Peak District walks for our clients. As well as covering the basics to the group as a whole, he spent time with individuals providing one to one coaching, tailored to their individual needs. Everyone on these landscape photography workshops went away delighted with the results that they had achieved, and with a new set of skills to put into practice in the months to come.”
