Phil Rose Photography
About this pro
With thirty years of experience, a fully equipped downtown studio and a keen artistic eye, Phil Rose is the photographer to turn to for creating unforgettable commercial images or to capture life's most beautiful moments. Please note that, while you will probably receive several cheaper bids on this site, Thumbtack sadly suffers from something of a 'race to the bottom' problem where cheaper but less skilled, talented and experienced photographers win out. Reasonably good digital cameras are now so affordable it has led to a glut of low quality 'professionals' here. For your shoot, especially your wedding, please look more at reviews and prior work. Any re-shoot is expensive and time consuming. If your wedding photographs are a disaster a re-shoot is simply not an option. You wouldn't hire just anyone who could afford a power saw to build you a house. Don't make the same mistake with your precious and unrepeatable life event! I enjoy the creativity and variety it affords me. I couldn't NOT be a photographer!

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My typical process really depends upon project. A lot of my work is in wedding photography and this is the arena which has the most options and requires the most personalisation. If the couple is local the ideal situation is for us to meet for a cup of coffee which comes with no obligation and which I will even buy! At this meeting we would talk over exactly what couple is looking for and decide if we are a good fit. I would then be able to provide a more exact bid. If the couple does not live locally such a meeting could be done over the telephone. The areas of photography that I do is a varied that the process is equally varied. Do, please just get in touch.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communication from Herriott Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland along with a variety of other trade qualifications. I continually strive to better myself come by reading and working through tutorials online that help me continually improve my post processing skills.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Interesting story! I REALLY wanted to be in a punk rock band but I soon recognised that I was too unmusical even for that! So I took up the camera as that would allow me to photograph the bands and hang out with all the cool people! I still love rock photography to this day.
