Philip Le Masurier

General info
Marrickville, Sydney, Australia
I make pictures.
All sorts of pictures.
Currently loving portraits, get in touch to book a sitting.
Basic head shot sitting is just $180. You're worth it.
I’ve been a passionate photographer since I was given my first camera at 12 and my first photographic light at sixteen. Photography is my job, my hobby and my art!
My clients overwhelmingly say how easy I am to work with, which translates to a relaxed and enjoyable experience for you. Whether you’re a seasoned performer or it’s your first time in front of a professional camera, I’ll make it comfortable, creative and rewarding. My diverse shooting experience means I can tailor our session to your needs, whether it’s a classic head shot or something more experimental.
Portrait Testimonials
"I've known Philip since the early 1990s, when our mutual careers as a writer and photographer were rocket-boosted as featured contributors for the newly launched Elle Australia. Philip now is much the same he was back then, with a few decades more experience in life and art on his visual resume. Gentle, highly focussed, deceptively hard-working, he makes every photo shoot seem easy. I love the portraits he took of me recently, so close and real they are almost under the skin; lit by a Rembrandt eye for light and shade that makes me look better than good. Still lives, headshots, deeply true portraits, Philip marries commercial and media imperatives with something memorable."  
- Mark Mordue, Author, Journalist, Poet

“Philip is clearly someone who knows exactly what he’s doing and his work speaks for itself. He has a wonderful studio and he set up everything before I arrived so when it came to taking my headshot it was all very easy with sitting down and posing for a short time. I was blown away by the resulting photographs which have such a luminous quality to them.”
-Sheila Ngoc Pham, Author, Academic

"Working with Philip is always a pleasure. What a creative, generous and wonderful spirit. Every time I arrive in studio he's ready to go - with props standing in for lighting so that we can hit the ground running! He's an artist and a technician; a very rare combination."
-Tara Clarke, Actor

As the Creative Director of marie claire magazine I was a long time admirer of Philip's sensational still life photography. I'm now a huge fan of his stunning portraiture work. 
It was delight to step into his photography studio for our recent shoot. Philip is creative, collaborative, fun and fast. The thought and preparation he put into the session prior to our arrival meant everything flowed smoothly with exceptional results.
-Matt Cosgrove, Author, Illustrator, Designer

I had the opportunity to shoot with Philip while living in Sydney. We had a lovely time chatting about movies, photography and inspirations.
Philip works with light beautifully and is ready to tailor a background/setup to get a specific shot.
We shot in a relaxed atmosphere and created beautiful striking images together. I enjoyed talking about his creative process and ideas. I recommend shooting with him: professional, creative and inspired, you will get great pictures.
