    Philip was first introduced to photography at a very young age by both of his grandfathers who were professional photographers. While he always had the family’s creative eye, Philip did not pursue his love for photography until he took photojournalism classes at Norfolk State University. Once he saw the world as a photographer, everything around Phillip began to look different. The most ordinary objects suddenly became interesting and beautiful subjects. Philip could not shake his overwhelming desire to capture and share every moment with the world.
