Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Phillip Van Nostrand: the curliest photographer you know. A Santa Barbara native turned NYC resident, Phil is a portrait, commercial, and wedding photographer with big dreams and even bigger personality. Or maybe, big personality and even bigger dreams. Hard to say. He is also a major part behind everything that goes on here at Photo Bomb!
Enjoy his story.
Currently Brooklyn, NY.
Canon 5D Mark III, Canon Fisheye 2.8, 17-40mm f/4, 50mm 1.4, 100mm Macro 2.8, 135mm f/2.
Would have to be the 50mm, even though the 135 is my fave.
Any wedding anywhere in Morocco.
This morning at these two lovely older ladies having mimosas in a cafe watching jazz music. Their happiness was infectious.
Making people feel beautiful about themselves. And traveling all over.
Taken at Diner en Blanc, a pop-up dinner where everything is dressed in white, and the location is a secret to all guests until about an hour beforehand.
Sometimes I throw my camera up in the air and it takes a picture from the sky. Also, I've got curly hair, extremely fast turnaround, and I charm grandmothers at every wedding.
For my sister's wedding a few weeks ago, I stayed up that same night and edited 100+ of the top photos. I went to Costco the next day and printed them all in 5x7 and delivered them to her and her husband that night in a silver 5x7 in La Rousse Photo Box. She loved it and carries them with her in her purse/bag every day :)
I also just surprised a client recently who asked for a flash drive of photos- I ordered an Ultimate Box and had a whole set of prints delivered to her along with a flash drive full of photos. The Ultimate Box was seriously the best thing I could ever purchase. I hate going out to the post office, packaging things, etc, etc. This did it all for me.
