Phil Sills - London Photographer

As a specialist London based advertising photographer, my passion is in creating professional, inspired and luxurious photography. From a close-up shot of amber whisky as it swirls in the glass, or the graphic lines of a speaker, to the sumptuous delights of a metallic tweeter grille in a car interior. Whatever the subject, I look for that different angle to capture creative images. Eye-catching, energized images that sell the product for you.

Based from my London studio, I am equally at home creating my work under the studio lights or going on location to shoot products live in situ. My advertising specialism focuses on liquid and drink photography, as well as high end luxury audio technology photography. I have a lively hyper-real photographic style that brings your products to life, whether the image is conceptual or a perfect product pack shot.

Each photographic commission can be wrapped up as a neat bundle of elements and layers for you to use in your own studio or marketing department, or I can add the final layer of gloss for you with the help of my network of highly skilled digital retouchers to deliver the final image.

My current portfolio of work is built from my love of detailed technical photography involving high quality digital camera techniques and specialist lighting set ups. I love the control and planning that goes hand in hand with liaising closely with quality drinks brands and technology manufacturers.

Working with advertising and marketing agencies, as well as direct with clients and manufacturers, I solve visual problems to help you achieve the best results. I get the commission, you sell more products – everyone’s happy!

A little more about me…

Early in my career I was given the opportunity to photograph Concorde. I was so honoured and thrilled to photograph a plane of such historic importance that it still sticks in my mind as my favourite shoot. Read my experience and see the pictures here.

  • My first 7” single was ‘The Only Way is Up’ by Yazz. Slightly embarrassing!
  • I won a silver medal diving at Crystal Palace back when I didn’t think twice about diving backwards off the top board. Don’t ask me to do it now though!
  • I can play the trumpet and was particularly good at the post horn. So if I had to have a second career choice it would be a jazz musician … nice (if you don’t get that, you need to click on the link)!
