About

Professional photography by Phil Portus   ARPS  EFIAP  DPAGB  BPE3*

I am a professional photographer based in  south Manchester.  I specialise in portrait photography and especially enjoy photographing  musicians whether  jazz, classical or pop,  either in performance or in my Didsbury studio.  I also enjoy capturing the day’s events of weddings from the bride’s preparation in the morning,   to the couples’ first dance at the reception.  My studio photography also extends to families and children to capture those moments to remember.

Photography has always been one of my life’s interests and my camera is constantly at my side, with the aim of capturing the excitement of a festival,  the splendour of a landscape or the gritty urban reality of a mill town in Greater Manchester.  My photographs have been exhibited nationally and internationally and I have gained several awards from salon competitions.  I have recently been awarded  the BPE Third crown distinction, the international EFIAP distinction, the ARPS distinction from the Royal Photographic Society and the Distinction of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (DPAGB)  My website shows many examples of my varied work and styles and copies of many images can be purchased by contacting me.
