HOME – philtheclick Photography


Welcome to philtheclick

and I hope you will enjoy exploring the galleries and articles especially in these Covid times.

I offer talks to local societies – the most recent subjects being ‘The Art of the Picturesque in the Wye Valley’, and ‘Stained Glass Windows and the Architecture of Churches and Cathedrals.

Also you can see images on this subject at my Club site at http://www.herefordshirephotographicsociety.co.uk/community/herefordshire-photographic-society-16210/phil-chapman/ .

Over the last three years I have photographed the exteriors and interiors of 180+ churches in and around Herefordshire.

There is also a page that includes a downloadable booklet ‘To build a by-pass: Images of the heritage we may lose’ that is indicative of countryside that will be spoilt if a new road, housing and industry is built, (though not intended for pro- or anti- bypass propoganda) and pages about the landscape painted by Brian Hatton.

My photographs have appeared in newspapers such as Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Times, magazines such as Countryfile, Country Life, book covers such as Bloomsbury/Shire, commissions such as for the online British Art Studies (Paul Mellon Foundation for British Art/Yale), and for corporate literature. Several articles were published in Digital Photo User magazine, and photographs have been exhibited and won prizes.

I recently curated a photographic competition ‘Impressions of Breinton’ that was judged by renowned photo-journalist John Bulmer. See the ‘Impressions…’ on this site or go to http://www.breintonhall.btck.co.uk/PhotographyCompetition . There will be a new competition launched once the pandemic has subsided.

You may wish to look first at my Blog page, where I update (very sporadically) first. Latest images include local pictures, Portraits (see page), a wedding, and parks designed by Capability Brown as well as those in and around Hereford and Herefordshire, including the page ‘Wyeside stimulated by Brian Hatton’.

I have been accredited and authorised as a contributor to National Trust Images, contribute to the Alamy picture agency and am a member of the Royal Photographic Society.
