Portrait of Dancer Jennifer Essex dressed as Humpty Dumpty for a new Children's theater show in the North East
Commission: Portrait of Jen dressed as Humpty Dumpty

I was asked to shoot a series of promotional images for Children’s Theater company ‘Fully Booked Theater‘ for their new show titled ‘Once Upon a Wall, a new take on the familiar nursery rhyme. You can view more of those images via the Fully Booked instagram

I decided to shoot a more formal portrait between the silliness. I love the surreal juxtaposition of the serious pose whilst dressed head to toe as an egg!

London for Air BnB

City Of London

London, UK. For Air bnb.

I shot a series of images over the course of three days to promote boroughs of London for Online and app based holiday accommodation company Air BnB. I had to cover 10 Boroughs, with a quick turnaround, highlighting all the sights in different ways: food, culture, and the character of the UK’s capital. Along with my assistant, we covered around 50,000 steps and the great proportion on the vast metropolis!

Tearsheet – BBC Panorama – Phil Hill Photographer

BBC Panorama

Film Photo Shoot (Yes, Film!) For BBC Panorama

I shot a series of images onto film that were featured on a recent episode of BBC’s current affairs program, Panorama. The series of images were used as props in the episode for a sequence shot in a photographic darkroom about recent terror attacks in Europe.

I also appeared in the episode, developing images and hanging them up to dry. A glittering hand modelling career awaits!
