An emerging landscape photographer based in Totnes, South Devon, UK – Phil Hemsley (a.k.a. ‘Morpheus71’ – from his graffiti days) is incredibly lucky to live between stunning beaches and fantastic moorland – he loves walking in the moors, climbing the cliffs and catching waves.

He is passionate about using visual imagery to capture the emotions, atmosphere and action of his subjects. His highly detailed work reflects his passion for rich light, colour and contrasting textures.
