I have recently bought a couple of gifts for family and I was so pleased with the service. I was unable to write my card and send due to lockdown and Phil took the time to take care of that for me. He kept in touch through the full buying process and made sure I was happy with the end results. My family have loved their gifts including cards, a print and now two masks! I will 100% be back! Thank you Phil for your thoughtfulness, talent and care in your work!

“Oh my goodness, I thought I had left a review for Phil AGES AGO! I have ordered images and prints for me and my family, calendars and all sorts from Phil Benton.
His work is fabulous, capturing places I love from around the north of England and reminding me of all the places I want to visit when mass travel is allowed again.
Phil is lush, talented and his customer service is MINT.”

“We were very fortunate to meet Phil at the Tall Ships festival in Sunderland. We had a wonderful hour looking through his exhibits. Eventually we purchased two pieces of his work,which quickly turned to 3 when he showed us his new work called Incoming. Phil has a natural talent in capturing the moment with his use of light. Top class photographer, whose work will give you years of pleasure.”
