Phil Clarke Hill is a documentary photographer and filmmaker. He specializes in music, activism, urban culture and travel reportage.
He’s originally from Yorkshire, England, he currently calls London home, though Latin America is his adopted Continent; in particular Brazil where he was a freelance correspondent across the region from 2014-16. Work still regularly takes him all over the place, with England as his home base.
Accustomed to demanding situations, he’s a dependable and determined visual journalist – equally at home filming a music documentary in a favela, on a magazine assignment with a remote indigenous community, or reporting on a tech startup in east London.
He particularly loves the challenge of shooting candidly, incorporating movement, and working in the lowest of light.
He’s been working professionally since 2011 on a mixture of personal projects and assignments for high level international clients. He has been awarded in the LUCIEs twice, was shortlisted for the Amnesty Student award and Environmental Photographer of the year, and received a One World Media Grant for work in Brazil.
A true hybrid shooter for the digital era with all his own equipment; he can provide video, audio, photography or a combination of them. He has a wide network of collaborators around the World, who can be called in when a team is necessary and for local on-the-ground knowledge.
Clients and publications include the Guardian Magazine, the Washington Post, National Geographic, BBC, AJ+, CNN, GEO, Smithsonian Magazine, Samsung, UNHCR, ASOS, Conde Nast Traveller, Lufthansa magazine, El Pais, Vice, Pearson Education, the Independent, Dazed and Huck.
