Professional standard photography by Phil Portus Â ARPS Â EFIAP Â DPAGBÂ BPE4*
I am a photographer based inÂ south Manchester.Â I specialise in portrait photography and especially enjoy photographing Â musicians whether Â jazz, classical or pop, Â either in performance or in my Didsbury studio. Â My studio photography also extends to families and children to capture those moments to remember.
Photography has always been one of my lifeâ€™s interestsÂ and my camera is constantly at my side, with the aim of capturing the excitement of a festival, Â the splendour of a landscape or the gritty urban reality of a mill town in Greater Manchester. Â My photographs have been exhibited nationally and internationally and I have gained several awards from salon competitions. Â I have recently been awarded Â the BPE Forth crownÂ distinction, the international EFIAP distinction, the ARPS distinction from the Royal Photographic Society and the Distinction of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (DPAGB) Â My website shows many examples of my varied work and styles and copies of many images can be purchased by contacting me.
