Phil Benton is a landscape and wildlife photographer from the north east of the UK. His journey started when trained as a painter and decorator at 15 years old to then received a life-changing diagnosis of Myalgia Encephalomyelitis (M.E.). After this, he fell in love with the art of photography, which has certainly been both unique and challenging.

Phil’s unique images of local wildlife and landscapes are highly sought after and feature in several galleries and shops throughout the northeast. Phil is extremely proud to have even been published in Landscape Photography of the Year.
