Welcome to

Phil Collins Photography

Established in 1988


With over 30 year’s years’ experience working as a photographer for major brands, I have a huge amount of knowledge in every aspect of the industry. But I still approach every job with the same attention to detail, willingness to take direction and enthusiasm as if it were my first.


Food photography is one of the few disciplines that hasn’t changed dramatically since digital came on the scene. It still takes meticulous preparation, a skilled team and a large pinch of patience. Get a taster of my work, including campaigns for major brands and publications.


With commercial photography, it’s important the photographer gets the big picture. Which is why my job starts well before the shoot, with a thorough understanding of your business’ needs and brief. I’ll work closely with you to plan the session, ensuring you get exactly what you were looking for.


There are certain skills necessary for lifestyle photography. A total understanding of light direction. Knowing how to get more out of your models, whether they’re professionals, pensioners or pre-teens. And most of all, a willingness to go the extra mile.


I travel wherever the job calls. But I think some of my best work is done in my studio on the south coast. It’s bespoke, purpose built, and has access to gorgeous locations and landscapes nearby.
