Let's Get To Know
Each Other               

hello I’m Philippa


My early career began in the consumer industry; retail and design. As a retail buyer for successful high street brands, I worked closely with designers, photographers, press, web and packaging departments.

I launched new brands and campaigns with multi million pound budgets, and saw product successes from initial concept and design through to selling on the shop floor.

Where it all started....

In 2012, I picked up my first pro camera and began assisting wedding photographers, learning through experience and self taught methods.

Four years later, I had grown my reputation and success as a photographer that I left my job in retail, taking all of that crucial commercial knowledge and experience with me on the consumer, branding, online imagery, packaging and sales.

The commercial side of my business, 'Shot by Philippa' was born in 2018, where I began to use all the skills from wedding photography and retail buying, to build a business where I could focus energy into creating beautiful visuals for independent businesses to elevate their own brands. I began working with Luxury Florists, Events Agencies, Event Producers and Beauty Giants to deliver beautiful brand imagery.

How it grew....

During the pandemic businesses had to work differently and I pivoted my skills more heavily into product photography for my clients, capturing luxe beauty mailers, and milestone planners that sell globally in the millions. 

Today I continue to offer all the commercial photography services that I have developed over the last 4 years and combined with my consumer retail history, I help my clients to develop a clear brand direction with High-End portfolio that’s more ‘them’ to clearly reach their target audience.

How It's Going!

Naomi - Grove Cottage

Her quality of work is excellent, with an amazing work ethic and commitment to what she does. There was such great communication before the shoot too so i felt very relaxed.


My approach to photography has always been relaxed but with clear vision. Whether you are looking for a personal brand shoot, portraits or product photography, you can be rest assured that a clear vision and brief is set before hand to go through all the finer details and requirements so I can better understand your brand and audience.

My values in business are to be authentic and clearly show that not only am I a pro in my field, but that I LOVE what I do. I want the same for your brand and business, which we will achieve with beautiful high-end imagery.

I believe that
