Phillip and Eileen Blume are international award-winning wedding and portrait photographers, and respected leaders in the photo industry. As socially conscious creatives, they not only travel the globe producing beautiful images but also believe in the power of visual media to change the world, as with their 2011 documentary film Lost Boys of Paradise. Having transformed their home studio in Clarke County (America's official highest poverty rate) into a top brand, they now work with clients in New York, London, Manila, Antigua, and beyond. As educators, the pair instructs thousands of photographers. Phillip is a contributor to the popular Shutter Magazine, while he and Eileen appear annually at WPPI and ShutterFest, two of photography’s leading conventions. They have been featured in broadcasts of Photographers Ignite and CreativeLive, and are especially passionate about their workshops and mentor program for photographers. The Blumes live in rural Georgia with their two young daughters and are currently in the process of adopting their third child.
