People photography.

Portraits, headshots, fashion, corporate, lifestyle, and groups.

After over 20 years of practicing unique and inventive fine art photography, Phil Collum has developed a love and passion for creating modern and stylistic lifestyle images. "I like to refer to these images as Lifestyle Images, rather than Fashion, because I believe it better reflects the style and energy captured in my work. It's not just about the fashions you wear, but its about expressing who you are."

Modern headshots, artistic portraits, and inventive lifestyle images are Phil Collum's first photographic loves. These sessions are designed for a variety of needs and circumstances, including a commercial client needing fashionable images for commercial use, professional or semi-pro models seeking to expand or diversify their portfolio, and amateur models wanting images more unique and creative than is offered through basic portraiture.

"When it comes to subjects and models, I believe you don't have to be a pro to photograph like one. No matter your level of experience, it's my job to make you look professional and to capture you at your best." Phil crafts each thematic image to create the best possible circumstance, resulting in the best quality images. Equally importantly, Phil's images are routinely placed among the best portfolio works of the models he shoots.

Although Phil found his love for portraiture in professional studio work, today Phil enjoys the creativity and inginuity of natural light portraits where he takes the camera outside the studio and onto the street. This modern style of portraiture usually provides a greater variety of unique possibilities, resulting in more intriguing images. "I love blending creative lighting with unique environments to capture intriguing portrait and lifestyle images," Phil says.

With available studio space and an equipment locker well stocked with a variety of both studio and mobile gear, Phil is also capable of creating more traditional studio portraits and headshots. Phil's works tirelessly to assure his images reflect both the theme and expectations of the client. But each of his images are also uniquely crafted to capture the personality of the model and the energy of the environment. From the artistic use of light, to scouting unique and intriguing environments, to creative post-processing techniques, "I want to grab your attention and give you something memorable."
