Philip, based in Shanghai, works as a editorial, corporate and advertising photographer with a specialty in portraiture.
An inquisitive and adventurous spirit would lead Philip away from his home in Perth, WA, and an initial career in architecture into a world of travel and freedom in photography. Based in Shanghai since 2006, Philip has worked with some of the world’s leading magazines – TIME, The Independent on Sunday Review, Figaro, Conde Nast Traveler – while shooting for corporate clients including HSBC and RBS. He has taught photojournalism at both Edith Cowan University and at the University of Western Sydney.
While his imagery has been honored with awards in his native Australia he has exhibited internationally – including being featured at Hollandʼs prestigious Noorderlicht Photo Festival and in Australia. His project Visible, Now – The Fragility of Childhood was published as an e-book in 2006 and his Black Christmas Bushfire Series (2001) is in the collection of the National Gallery of Australia.
In addition to photography, Philip has written numerous articles on his travels for publications as diverse as Cathay’s Discovery, South China Morning Post and Australian Financial Review, and is currently involved in the production of short film and documentary projects.
