Philip Stephenson, Stephenson Imagery, Paris, France

My photographic career started in 2001, where I worked as a photojournalist in London, England.  Following a yearlong trek through West Africa I moved to France in 2007. Since then, I drew my attention towards wedding photography to which I applied the experience and style of my early work.

As a member of the ISPWP, the WPJA and Fearless Photographers, my photography has gained several awards; listed in the ‘ISPWP Top 100 Wedding Photographers in the World – 2016’; as well as the ‘Top WPJA Photographers’ for 2015 and 2013.
