about Philip Turner

Male

Former museum curator, commercial advertising and fashion photographer who worked out of a studio in San Francisco in the 80's. I was represented in San Francisco, LA, NY, and Tokyo (stock photography). I have been responsible for the creation of many advertising images directly for clients or through their advertising agencies. I have produced photography for catalogs, food, packaging, fashion designers, and fashion editorial for consumer print publications.
------------------
"If you are a darkroom rat, like I once was, you would know the names, Edward, Brett and Kim Weston. This is the first thought that hit me when I saw Philip's black and white work of Catalina Cruise. His imagery is very much like theirs. This to me is the highest compliment that I could give a fellow photographer. These were my idols when I was shooting film and spending hours in the darkroom. Philip's work truly is something to be seen"

      Thanks!
      I'm always for more, to challenge myself and the norms, to explore the joint creativity in new collaborations, to try exciting locations etc

  • You're quite welcome. Thank you for the gallery addition!

    • I can't believe how beautiful your images are. You have an amazing compositional eye, and you have clearly captured your glorious models at the height of their craft. Thank you for sharing your art with a world that needs it!

      • Thanks for all your kind comments too. As I said in a previous comment; "I am astounded by individuals like yourself who can draw, paint or otherwise capture the essence of people in art other than photography." I am just a frustrated painter who found the tools in photography were a little easier to learn to use. You are too kind in your praise, but I can't say I would have you take it back either! Thanks for appreciating the time, care and pain I have poured into this type of art!

        The dark veil was perfect for my screen...

        • Good to know thanks Ben. I have corrected my CRT monitor for an obvious bias toward yellow when looking at color images on an LCD.

        The beauty, creativity, and diversity of your work is inspiring, Philip! Thank you for sharing such a finely curated portfolio!

        • Thanks again for your kind words. I feel so fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful and unique environments here in California. The diversity is astounding, even within a few miles of each other. You reminded me that it's all out there if we look for it. Keep up the great work too.

      • I love your portfolio Philip. It is so full of creative and imaginative work , which is beautifully shot and very well produced. I look forward to seeing more of your images on the Model Society.
        Best wishes.
        Paul

              Thanks for the comment Philip. We have worked in precisely the same industries/institutions and maybe have the same view on imagery. Your work is inspiring and represents a natural force.
