Philip was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. He studied painting at Washington & Lee University, Graphic Design at Parsons, and then worked in New York as an award-winning, editorial art director for 10 years, most recently at Real Simple magazine. While closely collaborating with photographers over those years, Philip felt increasingly drawn to the camera. He decided to take classes at ICP and eventually committed himself to a new career as a photographer. With his strong design-oriented background, Philip offers his clients a broad range of talents and the ability to view projects from multiple perspectives. He has shot for a diverse roster of advertising, editorial, and commercial clients, including Target, West Elm, Martha Stewart, and Jonathan Adler. Outside of his studio, he enjoys fishing and hiking on backcountry trails in the Catskills with his partner, Mike, and his Corgi, Rump Roast.
