Phil Haynes has burst onto the London photographic scene as part of the new generation of sports photographer who is in complete control of his images from production, photographing through to retouching. Phil is full of energy, creativity and passion.

Following a meteoric rise through assisting some of the top advertising photographers in the UK, Phil continued working on a sports portfolio that has been a work-in-progress over the last two years.

Phil candidly admits that his reasoning for mainly shooting sport is the result of him being a failed athlete. "This way I get to portray myself through whoever I am shooting, I decide how high I want them to jump or how fast to run, and secretly I am portraying myself as an athlete."

Phil is represented by The Peter Bailey Company in the UK. More of his work can be seen at his website.
