My name is Phil Rogers and I'm a multi award winning Photographer from Rhos on Sea, North Wales. I've been into photography from way back in the mists of time - well the 1960's anyway. I started using my parent's Kodak Box Brownie, progressing to the digital kit I use today. I started photographing weddings in 1988 just for a few friends and colleagues - it was usually a case of: "You've got a camera, will you photograph our wedding?"
It seemed that people wanted to pay me to photograph their special day so in 2008, when I retired from my day job, I took up wedding photography professionally. I've won over 70 national awards for my photography and even had several images accepted into local exhibitions as well as national and international photography salons.
Coming from a Policing background, I've always had to be organised and this has continued into my photography career. You will find that when I arrange to meet you, I'll always be on time but usually, I'll be early.
I'm a qualified member of the Guild of Photographers both in the Wedding and Professional sections and as such am bound by their professional code of conduct. I'm covered by Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance and also have Employer liability insurance for any second photographer I use. For more information on the Guild, click on the logo below.
My wedding photography has taken me across North Wales and into other parts of the UK such as Dumphries, Market Bosworth, Cleethorpes, Greater Manchester, High Wycombe and beyond. So if your wedding is anywhere basically then I'm happy to travel but anywhere over 40 miles from Rhos on Sea will incur extra charges to cover travel and where appropriate, accommodation expenses. These will be kept to a minimum and always agreed upon beforehand.
You'll find me very easy going and really laid back and nothing fazes me, so if you have an unusual request for a particular shot then usually, I'm up for it. I have been known to stand in a car park in the pouring rain camera in one hand and a brolly in the other just to get a group shot while they were on the hotel veranda in the dry. I've climbed up on roof tops, hung out of windows and gone up ladders for an image - health & safety all taken into consideration of course. For other types of photography, please contact me.
