Phil was easy to work with, very responsive, asked the right questions and scheduled the shoot in a timely fashion. His photos turned out great! Hope to work together again soon.Dec 14, 2019Verified

I recently had a last minute request from a gallery to do an art show. I needed a photographer really quick and got a lot of requests through Thumbtack. I took my time finding the right fit and someone I could easily communicate with. Phil made it very easy coming to me, assisted by his wife and got the job done quick. The images were sent to me in an easy to access format so I could share with the gallery. Highly recommend!Jun 2, 2019VerifiedPhil Rose Photography's reply
Thank you so much, Annie. It was a pleasure working with you and I really hope to do so again soon.
I needed my very detailed, engraved glasswork professionally photographed to present to potential clients. This is a very difficult thing to do because of the glare and reflections - it is tricky subject matter in all aspects.. Phil did an exceptional job, VERY quickly and VERY reasonably priced. I am extremely happy with his work and will use his expertise for more photographs as soon as I need them.Mar 5, 2014Verified
It was a pleasure working with Phil! He was attentive and professional. He braved a really cold day to get us some beautiful photos in the snow! The quality of the pictures were excellent and we were able to pick additional favorite photos from his raw images for touch up! We would definitely hire Phil again!Jan 18, 2020Verified

Phil took some excellent photos of us in the fall colors of a Seattle park, and was also just a wonderfully pleasant easy-going person which made the session so relaxing. He was very good at engaging our infant son and was not at all phased by my son's non-compliant mood. Attentive and communicative post-shoot and with a very fast turnaround. He was gracious about the distance he traveled despite coming from Bellingham and still offered a us a very fair rate.Oct 30, 2019VerifiedPhil Rose Photography's reply
Thanks so much, Jenny. This was one of my favourite shoots in a long time. Sam was a delight, I thought and the fall colours and your clear understanding of what makes for good images really helped us get what we were looking for. I hope to work with you again some time.

Other shoots need to be custom quoted. Please see for more information on what you get and don't get from a shoot. This is very important and these rules will apply to all shoots. Most importantly, if you have any questions, please ask!
- 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.
