Troy Phillips was born and raised in Oklahoma, USA. With a background in counseling psychology and design, Troy also has a passion for photography which started in his early teenage years. And as we have seen many times already, once that kind of passion is found, it will never go away anymore. Troy’s love for photography followed him like a shadow. He took it with him when he moved to Japan for studies. And it followed him back to the United States when he settled in New York City in the early 1990’s. Still it would take another handful of years before Troy Phillips would give in to his affection for the art and turned it into a career. A successful one as well.
Currently located in Brooklyn, NYC, Troy Phillips has made quite a name for himself as photographer with a specialization in editorial, fashion, fitness, beauty, fine arts and portrait photography. But Troy is not alone. He works in partnership with Akimitsu Sadoi, another fine artist. Akimitsu originates from Hiroshima, Japan but has been living in New York since 1990. Besides a very talented photographer himself, Akimisu is also the soundboard fro Troy when it comes to bouncing off creative ideas. Together they can sign off on numerous publications in just as many renowned magazines and photo books, as well as exhibitions in prominent galleries.
This set which we called Sexy Colours, shows Troy Phillips’ cunning talent to marry beautiful men with colorful props and products. These photographs show what Troy does best. With his great sense for editorial photography, Troy portrays fitness guys as if they were high-end fashion models. Each single image breaths eroticism. Some subtle, other more in your face. But every single one of them with style and grace and a boldness that is a true example of fine art photography. –BM-
