Hello! I'm Phil Harrison a Worcestershire based Professional Photographer and I specialise in Wedding , Family , portrait & aerial photography. If there is any type of photography you are looking for please do still make an enquiry as I adapt well to most requests. I'm authorised by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) for aerial photography up to 400 feet high to get spectacular images.
Although based in Worcester I am available to photograph your event throughout the UK.
I'm also a Dad with two gorgeous daughters Ella aged 9 & Molly aged 5! The biggest complement I get (apart from the quality of the photos!) is that I make people feel relaxed having their photos taken, I'm very professional & that I'm a "nice guy"! That's just me in a nut shell although under that relaxed mode I am very professional in what I do & I understand the importance of getting lovely photos on important occasions.
2017 was a brilliant year including 29 weddings photographed & many family shoots. 2018 introduced a broader mix of photography including commercial & aerial photography. 2019 has been my busiest year with 25 weddings, multiple family shoots. aerial sessions, a school with 600 individual photo sessions & nurseries too. I've done many family photo sessions whether it be studio based or in an outside location.
It does go to say that I just love taking photographs! Whether it's a photo of a Mum , Dad & child, a Bride & Groom, Commercial or an aerial photo of a property , I strive to create a wonderful image. For portraits I can also put you at ease with my relaxed style if you're not particularly keen on having your photo taken!
I'm very passionate about what I do and I'm very fortunate to what I love to do on a full time basis.
For many years in my career including 11 years in a High Street Bank my job entailed building and maintaining client relationships. If you need photos doing for your own important clients (perhaps an Estate Agent requiring property photos) , you can be confident in my ability to be very professional & to treat your clients with the utmost respect.
I started my love for photography when I got married and went on honeymoon to Canada, a truly amazing place! ( a few years ago now!)
Weddings - I always look forward to photographing weddings. I realised I can offer something quite special to show the mood of happiness on such a special day and also tell a story with my photography from the getting ready shots through to the first dance. I can photograph in any style whether it's formal or more candid "reportage" photography. Check out my wedding photo gallery click here I am always very thorough with all the weddings I photograph making sure I've checked out great locations at a venue for beautiful photographs and checking with the bride & groom before the day if they have any preferences. I'm always happy to discuss ideas and to give advice as well, especially regarding the time available on the day for group photos (making sure that these don't dominate the day) . I always offer the option for a pre wedding shoot which is a great way to get to know each other and for a couple to get used to having their photos taken.
Family Photography - Having two young children I have had plenty of opportunity to capture those special photos from giggles to the more moody moments. I love taking family photos and my photo sessions are really good fun! I'm also used to photographing parents / grandparents and adjust my style accordingly! Sessions can be in my studio or at a favourite outdoor location.
Aerial Photography - I'm authorised by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) for aerial photography up to 400 feet high to get spectacular images. I also hold £1m in public liability insurance which can be increased if required for a particular shoot. I'm first and foremost a photographer so all of my skills translate into the correct settings / lighting to get great photos from the air. I'm also very competent in flying a drone and follow the strict guidelines laid down by the CAA to ensure safe flying. If photography requires talking to your important clients you can be assured of a professional approach - before becoming a professional photographer I spent 20 years + providing clients with advice and maintaining high levels of customer relationships.

Facebook I've been uploading some photos from each wedding I've done recently on my Facebook page so please do check what I've been up to and
Equipment - On occasions I get asked what equipment I use. And the answer is Canon full frame cameras and "L" class lenses. My main camera is a Canon 5D (Mark IV) and I also have 2nd and 3rd Canon 6D's. My main lenses are a Canon 24-70 2.8 ii & the absolutely gorgeous Canon 70-200 2.8 ii . (did I really just call a lens gorgeous?!) I also use a 12-24 to get those very wide angled shots. It's all high quality professional equipment bought from new & for weddings I have back up cameras / lenses etc. For family studio shoots I use Elinchrom lighting & for Aerial photos I use DJI drones and cameras ..... really sorry if this has made you nod off!
