From an early age Phillip has had a deep connection with the natural landscape, growing up spending annual holidays camping in many of Australia's amazing national parks. It is there that his first inspiration into photography came while hiking with his father who always had a camera in hand.
Moving to New Zealand in 1997 deepened Phillip's connection with the landscape where he further developed his pursuit of rock climbing, skiing and mountaineering, all the time photographing the wilderness around him. Phillip has travelled to and photographed on all 7 continents and has been on many climbing and trekking adventures including places like Antarctica, Mt McKinley(Denali) in Alaska, The Canadian Rockies, and Everest Base Camp in Nepal.
