Philip and his girlfriend Addysen were in Hawaii for a job when they decided to shoot a more story driven photograph in their hotel room. They set up the scene and hit the self timer as Philip ran across to the shower. It took them 23 takes to get the picture, which was tough on Addysen who had to hold that emotional moment.

Philip Roy

Austin, Texas

Philip Roy is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker turned photographer. He explains the transition, "after lighting and shooting over 30 feature films, I started to find myself more interested in photography. It's more romantic and not so rushed like film. I wanted more time to create and light." Using stage lights from his filmmaking days, Philip lights each photograph and captures the scene in one frame. In other words, he does not alter or retouch the images in the studio - it is all captured in one shot on-site. In a time of digital manipulation, this is a purist approach to the art of photography. Philip stays awake late at night imagining new scenes, and then does the discovery and planning on site. He uses the materials and settings near him, often shooting himself or his girlfriend in their trailer and nearby properties. Based in Austin, Texas, Philip also enjoys running the lake, developing new show ideas and eating sushi.
