Spokane, Washington based photographer Chip Phillips began his relationship with photography in 2006 when his father gave him his old Pentax Spotmatic film SLR camera. Chip was immediately hooked, and soon made the transition to digital. Given his lifelong love of the outdoors, he naturally made the progression to focusing on landscape photography. A professionally trained classical musician, Chip performs as Principal Clarinet with the Spokane Symphony Orchestra, and is a Professor at Gonzaga University.
Chip’s images have been published in various magazines, including Popular Photography and Imaging, Digital Photography, and Digital Photo Magazine. Most recently, Chip won first and second place in the landscapes category of Digital Camera magazine’s 2009 Photographer of the Year contest. Chip is proud to be a member of Photocascadia, a group consisting of some of the top landscape photographers in the Pacific Northwest.
