About Me

“Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.”

— Jonathan Swift



Phil Parker is a portrait and food photographer, based in Memphis, Tennessee.

When I'm not taking photos, you'll find me exploring the outdoors with my dog Tucker.  Usually I take along an old half-frame 35mm camera which my dad bought for me a long time ago.  For spontaneous "found" photos it's the best - and it shoots real film, which is coming back from being a lost art! 


Portrait photography is all about making a connection.  You have to have empathy, humor and get people to trust you right away.
