About Philip

Philip - Owner / Lead Photographer

Hi! I’m Philip. 

I love photography and capturing the memories that people share.  My goal is to create beautiful, timeless photographs for you and your family. I devote all of my energy into doing the best job I can.  

My friends would say that I’m a generous person with a kind heart. My past clients would say that I’m an amazing photographer, very personable, great to work with, and a friendly professional person.

I enjoy beautiful scenery, warm sunsets, all types of music, seeing the world by vehicle, and flying an airplane.  I’m very dedicated to what I do and I’m blessed to get to do it full-time.  I would be honored if gave me the opportunity to serve you with my photography skills.

Hobbies & Interests

Photography (the most obvious one)

Philip’s number one passion is for photography.  STUDIO 1250 wouldn’t exist today if it wasn’t for his unceasing passion for the art.  If Philip wasn’t a full-time photographer, he would continue to pursue photography as a hobby to capture the life that surrounds him everyday.

Flying

Philip is an FAA licensed, Private Pilot.  He enjoys soaring above the cities and shorelines and catching an unobstructed view of an evening sunset. “With aviation comes great freedom, great responsibility.”

Enjoying the Outdoors

Philip likes experiencing the great outdoors.  He has spent a lot of time hiking in Alaska and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  He also enjoys exploring the Historical Plantations of Charleston and the warm summer weather.  His interest in the wild outdoors is also greatly linked to his passion for photography. 

Traveling

Philip loves traveling to new places.  One of his favorite trips has been a cross country road-trip from Alaska through California to South Carolina, driving over 7,500 miles.  Philip has also traveled to Paris, France; Venice, Italy; Ireland; and Thailand.  Philip is always searching for his next big vacation.

Eating Healthy

This country’s agricultural crisis has inspired Philip to strive for healthy eating and natural, nutritional healing methods.  Philip enjoys watching documentaries on the food epidemic that is taking over the United States.  He continues to learn ways of eating healthy and living a better life.
