“Phil is quite simply one of the finest photographers I have ever met, able to not only capture wonderful images but also to put people at ease with his kind, professional manner. I am rarely lost for words but I am stunned by the beautiful pictures Phil has created…”

Phil Barrett

I have always been a creative soul, from my first career as an illustrator and designer, I have drawn, painted and sculpted all my life. My first career resulted in illustrating for some of the worlds largest greeting card producers, working in their Telford studio and seeing my work published globally, was amazing. After nearly 20 years, the latter part managing the studio pre production and design side of things, I had a change in direction. I went back to university, just to decide on what to do after being faced with redundancy. It was there I setup PbArtWorks whilst completing my second degree….it was to be a design, come photography agency, a one stop shop. However, it was my photography that really caught fire, my approach to weddings in particular, at that time, was pretty unique. No forced smiles, no cheesy grins…just natural effortless, real, photography.

My real love for creating beautiful imagery is something I have always had, be it through pen and brush, or camera and lens. All I set out to do is to make people, my couples, their family and friends, happy.

I am sure you’re not interested in my personal life….or if I had a camera when I was ten years old…given to me by my Grand Father….or if indeed it was a box brownie that used Kodak film….what I know you will be interested in is what makes me tick.

That’s easy, creating a truly wonderful photographic experience with amazing couples!

My work ethic, from my career as an illustrator, right through to today, tomorrow and beyond, has always been, good enough is never good enough!

I hope that’s enough for you to get in touch and look forward to hearing all about your amazing days
