Bill Philip art prints and posters

Photographer Bill Philip was born in 1946 and grew up surrounded by the scenic beauty of his native Scotland and the magnificent Lake District, which can be seen in the atmospheric shots of the landscape that formed the background of his early years: the mountains, lochs and seas of the northern wilderness.

The photographer received his B.A. in Fine Art Photography from The University of Westminster and following his career as a professional photographer, Philip started sharing his wealth of knowledge more widely when he was elected as the Director of Arts at his old university.

Combining traditional photography with advanced digital techniques, Bill Philip's images employ a chiaroscuro technique, a style characterized by sharp contrasts between light and dark in his photographic prints.

Philip is a founding member of the Arundel Gallery Trail and has been showered with numerous high-profile awards including the Kodak Portrait Award and a print award from the British Institute of Incorporated Photographers. His photographs have been published and exhibited globally and the most recent showings have been the Affordable Art Fair in London and the Brighton Festival in 2010.

Bill Philip’s also accepts commercial commissions from varying institutions such as the Atrium Restaurant in London, Thorpe Architects, and The Times newspaper, so you may be more exposed to his work than you think. Philip is currently lives and works in West Sussex.

More about framing

framing info

In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
