Phil Clarke Hill
Photojournalist, travel photographer and filmmaker: specialist in unusual cultural stories and low light. Originally from Yorkshire, I'm now based between England and South America (with other trips here and there). I shoot my own projects plus undertake editorial and commercial commissions; always with a documentary eye.
The best way to sum up what I do and where I’m coming from are a few words: freedom, independence, energy, passion, culture, the underground, joy, music, ingenuity, fascination, spontaneity, individuality, unusual, night, resistance, atmosphere, immersive, candid.
I believe personal qualities are as important as photographic ones in the field, in addition to an awareness of light, colour and composition, a great photojournalist needs communication, persistence and courage to work in this vocation, that is so much more than a job.
Since going pro in 2011 I've been working for great clients such as the BBC, the Washington Post, National Geographic Traveller, the Guardian Magazine, GEO, Lufthansa magazine, the Telegraph, El Pais, the Independent, Dazed, Huck, and Vice. I've also worked for commercial clients such as ASOS, Pearson Ed, American Express, Christies, UK Arts Council, London Olympics, the REA and Age UK.
Awards and accolades include a One World Media grant, the work from which was a finalist in the Amnesty award, plus commendations by the LUCIE's, Environmental Photographer of the Year and the Royal Photographic Society.
