Phil lives in Strathspey in the Scottish Highlands. In October 1989 he began his photography business, selling landscape photographs as cibachrome prints and in 1990 began producing postcards. Scottish calendars were produced from 1994 until 2011. Postcards featuring animals, landscapes, castles, towns and villages, plus a small range of greetings cards are currently published; these can be seen at http://www.philbanks.co.uk
In the past decade, Phil has traveled on photo assignments to various countries in Europe, North America and Australia and some of the images from those trips are now included in the Galleries. These can be purchased directly from the galleries as greetings cards, prints, framed prints, canvas prints or metal prints.
