Meet the team

Parklife has been taking family portraits in the parks and gardens of London since 2005. Run by brother and sister team, Phil Wilson and Annabel Bennett it is a true family business.

Phil Wilson – Founder and Photographer

Phil studied fine art at Winchester College of Art and subsequently trained in various studios including the award winning studio Venture. In 2005 Phil moved to London and set up Parklife. “I wanted to get portrait photography out of the stuffy studio environment, kids often feel very uncomfortable in the studio and this results in stiff, posed images (or even worse tears). Outside its their turf and the results speak for themselves. That’s why clients enjoy their Parklife experience and come back year after year.”

Phil’s work has appeared in Tatler, The New York Times Magazine and French newspaper Le Monde.

Phil’s easy going personality and artistic flair ensure your Parklife shoot will be lots of fun with a great end result. Email him at
