Photographer Phil Benton specialises in landscapes, landmarks and wildlife. He says he is passionate about what he does and loves that he turned what was just a hobby, into a career.
Phil, who is based in Gateshead, started his working life as a painter and decorator. It was due to ill health and a light-bulb moment that led him to take up photography as a hobby at a local camera club. After winning a number of competitions he was encouraged to set up his business. He now sells his prints and products containing his work at shops and galleries across the North of England. His pictures have been published in Landscape Photography of the Year and Phil now gives talks to camera clubs. He also restores old photographs and works on commissions.
His prints come in a wide range of options and also feature on products such as cards mugs, coasters and calendars.
