Helping purpose-driven people

tell their story and lead meaningful change.

Hey there, I’m Phil, a coach and visual story teller. My absolute passion is to help mission-driven coaches lead real change, through finding their voice and becoming authentically visible. With coaching I help them step into their full-range as leaders and through photographic Story Portraits, coaches have a platform to celebrate their utterly unique ‘hero’s journey’ life story.

Realising, owning and leading from the most captivating aspects of who you are, acts as a beacon for your audience, the people you are here to help. Subsequently, your tribe find you, they want to work with you and you land the clients you love.

I will lead you through this truly unique experience, a blend of 1-1 coaching, crafting your written life story and having a personal photographic portrait session with myself.

This culminates in a powerful testament to who you uniquely are as a change-maker – a rich feature page here on Luminous Lives and what’s more, you’ll receive a series of beautiful portrait photographs you can use as you wish to promote yourself, and your work, on socialmedia and beyond.

  • I thoroughly cherished this experience. Between us we created a deeply connected and intimate space which Phil expertly caught in these beautiful shots. I don’t often love photos of myself but these are wonderful.

  • My Story Portrait Session with you at Greenwich was such a positive experience: Supported by your professional, kind guidance and positive, non-judgemental approach, I could overcome my camera-shyness and even enjoyed being photographed!

  • He has clear, honest eyes for each of his clients and he knows how to reach down to his clients’ essence. Through his gentle magic, he is a perceptive photographer. We spent a few hours together him clicking away, me going deeper and deeper into who I am and who I show up as in the world. Just magical.

  • A photo of you is exposing, but a Story Portrait is an epic milestone! If there is anything I don't love about the idea is that it wasn't mine! This will change your life.

  • Working with Phil I got structure, clarity and reassurance - what got is what I needed, all wrapped up in a warm professional and very human journey. It is a really unique talent he has.

  • You nailed it! A powerful experience of letting go what’s in the way and letting come the full expression of who I am. It’s a cathartic process that incorporates the art of photography with coaching. You are a master in both and reading my portrait is proof of it!

  • Phil helped me be seen for who I really am. It was a challenge for me as I was struggling with feeling safe and legitimate in my choice to change careers. His help to write my story, his questions and guidance and his very supportive outlook on my journey as well as through the lens of his camera gave me the confidence to go all in and take the leap!
