Phil, who is from Rhos on Sea and has won an incredible 75 national awards, said: “I’m a multi-national award-winning photographer. I’ve been into photography from way back in the mists of time – well the 1960’s anyway. I started using my parent’s Kodak Box Brownie, progressing to the digital kit I use today.

“I started photographing weddings in 1988 just for a few friends and colleagues – it was usually a case of: ‘You’ve got a camera; will you photograph our wedding?’ It seemed that people wanted to pay me to photograph their special day so in 2008, when I retired from my day job, I took up wedding photography professionally.

“I’ve had several images accepted into local exhibitions as well as national and international photography salons.

“Coming from a policing background, I’ve always had to be organised and this has continued into my photography career.

“You will find that when I arrange to meet you, I’ll always be on time but usually, I’ll be early.”
