About the Artist:
Phillip is a husband, father, Freemason, amateur photographer and artist, and wildlife enthusiast. He has a deep love for nature and finds unprecedented beauty each and every time he ventures out with his camera.
Philtered Studios was created for the purpose of displaying, sharing, and making available for purchase, Phillips creations. Philtered is a play on the word 'filtered' but also has its own meaning. A 'philter' is defined as a potion, charm, or drug supposed to cause the person taking it to fall in love, usually with some specific person. Therefore, 'philtered' is having been enchanted or bewitched with a philter.
About the Work:
When photographing animals Phillip's goal is to capture a glimpse into their lives as well as their personality. He feels so many creatures are so very misunderstood yet they are essential to the delicate balance of the ecosystems we live in. He simply states this by saying "I hope that my work helps people appreciate the complexity and fragility of all organisms."
With landscapes and plant life, he aims to take the viewer into the shot to experience the emotion of the scene. The wonder and awe, the serenity and stillness or even the dark and haunting. He states"Photographs capture a very specific moment in time and since time is always moving forward that moment will never be repeated but can be shared."
"It is my sincere wish that you find as much joy in viewing my work as I felt while creating it."
