The personal photography journey began back in junior and then high school. The science & technical interest appeared when he volunteered his time being the AV nerd person working with slide projectors and other forms of optical media projectors. Then, a gift from grandpa Joe, a well used old camera.- the infamous Kodak brownie- sparked Kerry's interest. Then Dad bought the LIFE photography library, and that was it! Hooked on photography. Phillips was fascinated by the light, kinetics, and the emotional connection it had with human response. Phillips developed an affinity for the diversity of styles by great photographers and became immersed in lighting, camera placement, photography, the darkroom, and advanced OG film techniques. Phillips fell in love with the magic created and captured through the process. Kerry discovered not only what is seen through the lens, but also the poetry and allure of our natural and fabricated world. Years of intense dedication and practical photography consumed Phillips. Nature, people, and their ever-changing kinetic qualities have been a major influence on Kerry's style and humour.

We had been looking for a unique art piece for our new home for a while. Kerry’s fine art photograph of an “iconic” building on the famous Howe Sound Fjord, resonated with us, as it is on a familiar route to Whistler.
Kerry helped us choose from the many mounting and framing options possible and organized delivery with impeccable service and quality.
Thank you Kerry

Kerry Phillips has an incredible eye and also exceptional attention to detail! A particular image of Kerry's caught and held my interest and I was fortunate to be able to purchase it for my bed and breakfast, Grace House in Niagara on the Lake. Kerry was amazing arranging to get the print to me. He kept in touch with me while it was in transit, and was concerned that it arrived safely. He was very specific with me to examine the packaging to make sure that the work was flawless, which it was on arrival... still is!
