Ten years ago Phil established Saddleworth Studios in the village of Greenfield with award-winning pet photographer Samantha Jones LBIPP. Set in a historic old mill in the stunning Saddleworth countryside, the studio gallery offers a great environment to create inspired studio product, fashion, portrait and pet photography while at the same time offering a great gallery space to showcase their work.
