Welcome to Phil Benton Photography

I am a North East photographer who is passionate about capturing life, whether it is for corporate events, pets, people, wildlife or the stunning force of nature.


Do you need a North East photographer?

I’m Phil Benton, and I’ve been taking pictures of people, pets and landscapes since my first camera in my late teens. And now at 56 years young…

Photography is about telling stories, about capturing and preserving those precious memories of the people and places that we love.

I offer a friendly and professional service with a smile and am happy to travel throughout the north east for commissions.

My images can be purchased in A4 prints, MDF boards, wallpaper and greetings cards amongst others so please feel free to browse my catalogue or get in touch for an informal chat about your requirements.

North East Landscape & Wildlife Photography

with Phil Benton

I’ve spent the best part of a decade experimenting with natural light and perfecting the art of capturing the heartbeat of the north east, often spending hours rooted to the same spot in all kinds of weather, waiting for that ideal shot.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I’d go further than that and say that one picture can evoke a thousand emotions and tell a thousand stories.
