Ed Phillips


Ed worked for many years in the NHS, specialising in microbiology and parasitology. At age 50 he decided to take voluntary early retirement and start his own consultancy company and before long a small commercial photography business was running in parallel with the consultancy.

Initially macro photography of the small and very small occupied a lot of his time but more recently a new interest developed that involves lighting a composition with torchlight. He liked the results and was determined to develop his own style and “look”. The technique lends itself to items having surface texture and patina.

The technique can produce a rather painterly feel to the image and even a Dutch “Old Master” look. This works well with antique and vintage items.
