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 Professor of Clarinet at Gonzaga University. Chip’s images have been published in various books and magazines, including National Geographic, Outdoor Photographer, Popular Photography and Imaging, Digital Photography, and Digital Photo Magazine. Chip is teaching photo workshops at the Cascade Center of Photography.
