PAUL PHILLIPS

ABOUT PAUL

I spent most of my first paycheck as an accountant on my first 35mm camera. My business career took me from being a Partner in the International Accounting Firm KPMG, to heading a consulting practice specializing in strategic planning and economic modeling for large non-profit organizations and publishing a book on decision making. Finally in 2002 I was able to move my passion for photography to a professional level.

In 2007, I traveled with the US Women’s Soccer team to the FIFA World Cup in China and published Portrait of Passion, a book for teenage girls with the inspirational stories of these great role models. Portrait of Passion was a finalist for the Women’s Sports Foundation’s 2009 Billie Award for the outstanding portrayal of women in sport.

In 2010, our start photo from the London ITU World Championship Series Race, which appeared in Sports Illustrated, was selected as Canon Professional Network Editor’s Choice. In addition, the industry group Triathlon America voted our images as the two Best Published Triathlon Photos for 2010.

In 2012, I was the USA Triathlon Photographer for the London Olympic Games.

2013 was another great year including 14 magazine covers ending with a great day at the Ironman World Championship in Kona-Kailua, HI.

In 2014 my season began with shooting 23 events in 15 days at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

In 2015 our photo from Challenge Roth's famed Solaraberg Hill was selected by Triathlon Business Internationals Best Published Triathlon Photo.

I am truly fortunate to be internationally known for my work in Triathlon and on a monthly basis I contribute to:
