about Philip Turner


Former museum curator, commercial advertising and fashion photographer who worked out of a studio in San Francisco in the 80's. My undergraduate degree is from RIT (Rochester, NY) in Photo Illustration with a minor in Photo Science. As a commercial photographer, I was represented in San Francisco, LA, NY, and Tokyo (advertising and stock photography). I am constantly learning new (for me) techniques and visual modalities from others as digital is pretty new for me. I love seeing how the work of others inspires us all. I am grateful to be part of this vital community.

    • The pleasure is all mine. One of the most creative portfolios I've seen in a long time. You have given me lots of inspiration too.

    • Glad you think so, Actually I was thinking the same about your art. I use models as stock and I have my inspiration to see and use model poses like you have in your port. Looking at them it is itching in my fingers to start a new work.Love bl/w too!!

    • I am blown away by the quality of many of your images. If I was still in commercial fashion, I would book you in a heartbeat. But fortunately I see that you are doing fine art figure work too, I can only hope our paths will cross in the future.

  • Thank you so much for your encouraging words Philip, coming from such an incredible professional as yourself it means a lot. Where do you live/work at present? Though I am not certain of when yet I am planning to come out to the USA for the first time this year and would absolutely love to do some modelling whilst out there. Excuse my audacity! Paisley X.

    • Hi Paisley, we are all on this learning journey together so I appreciate so many divergent and differing approaches to art. Yours is truly unique. Still I am looking forward to the upcoming gems you might present us with. I am hopeful of more to come!
