At an early age, Phil Gates had his start with visuals as a portrait artist amongst other iconic Chicago artists such as Barrett “Numbers” Howard (RIP), Gerald White, and Murdock to name a few. One of his closest friends “Numbers” had given him a small Olympus camera to capture his drawings before he sold them off to clients. Phil took that opportunity to not only capture photos of his portraits, but began taking pictures of everything around him. Developing an interest in the craft, Phil Gates then “borrowed” his father’s Canon camera, which happened to be a more professional camera due to his father being an architect and needing it for work. This had allowed him to learn much of the technical aspects and intricacies of the craft early on. When his close friend Barrett had passed in 2001, Phil had lost interest in portrait drawing but continued to learn, practice, and hone his skills in photography, even venturing off into film and cinematography. Phil Gates specializes in time-lapses and hyper-lapses, cityscapes, portraits and headshots, as well as editorial, commercial, advertising, and product photography but can handle most any project requiring a lens to tell the story.
