Self portrait of Phil Sanderson, a photographer available for commissions on portrait work of horses, dogs and humans

My name’s Phil Sanderson and I’m a commercial and fine art portrait photographer. 


Prior to picking up the camera, I was an award winning Art Director working within the advertising industry in Scotland so I'm well versed in understanding a commercial brief and producing campaigns for the advertising and corporate sector. I have a large network of set designers, hair and make up artists and location finders that I can call upon for these larger commercial projects.


I’m obsessed with the interplay of light and dark which is where my love of Chiaroscuro (or Rembrandt) lighting and the dark and atmospheric, low key lighting styles influence my personal work greatly. But I’m well versed in all photographic styles, and I enjoy colourful gel lighting, as well as the beautiful craft of black and white portrait work, there’s something really special about that.


I truly believe that a great portrait is a collaboration between the photographer and the model/subject, so I always work collaboratively with all my clients, involving them in every step of the creative process to ensure that they end up with the perfect image.

I hope you like my work and please, don't hesitate to get in touch if I can help you create that perfect image.
