I’m always excited to share my photography with new people. I’m thrilled that you’re here! I’d like you to know a little about my story.
I am Phil Holland and I live in Texas near Dallas with my wife Lee. Lee is a officer and an amazing person. She inspires me more than I know how to tell her. The concept of doing something half-way does not exist to my wife. Together we are sharing the excitement of watching our amazing young daughter and son grow laugh and learn!
My Mom is the greatest musician I have ever known. She is a pianist and went to the Eastman School of Music. I am a classical musician and have studied the trumpet my entire life, also at the Eastman School of Music. She taught us to create and think. I love her dearly.
After college I was a principal trumpet player in the United States Air Force Band. I’m proud to be a veteran. I still teach the trumpet in Plano, Texas. I have the best, most amazing students and love that I am both a photographer and a trumpet player.
My father is no longer living. I miss him more than I could have ever imagined. His father was a country photographer in rural Tennessee. He washed his prints in a creek. This was in the 1920’s and I am amazed at the art he created with the tools he had. I never knew him, but he passed photography to me through Dad.
Did I mention that I miss Dad? I think of him often when I am photographing high energy, once in a lifetime moments. He would be excited. He will always be with me and that makes me smile.
I love sharing things I love. “Show and Tell” is big in my family! I’m excited when someone emails me about photography. I always will be. I hope the next email I get will be from you. It’s your turn. Tell me your story, I can’t wait to hear it!
