 About Ty Philips :

Ty Philips in the StudioTy was the showrunner for GENGHIS KHAN - The Exhibition @ PNE #104 Summer 2013.  One of the biggest challenges of the year so far, Ty worked with Promoter DON LESSEM, RCI (Retail Curators Inc.) and the PNE to open and run the keystone Exhibition for this year's fair.  Almost 20 000sq feet of exhibition space formed this most fascinating installation which included weaponry & artifacts dating back over 8000 years!  Ty was pleased to facilitate a very fitting local partnership with PEKING LOUNGE contemporary Chinese Interiors which featured furniture and art pieces with a similar theme all available for purchase in a stunning gift shoppe.  Fun was had by many guests playing with greenscreen 'magic',  allowing them to become Genghis Khan on horseback and create a personal memento of the exhibition and fair with a deluxe photo.  A highlight for Ty was being able to rehire and work with former staff from last year's exhibition at the very same venue.

Showrunner for STARTREK - The Exhibition @ the PNE #103 Summer 2012, Ty once again hired and trained over 30 photographers and oversaw the daily running of this enormously successful exhibition brought to the Pacific Northwest region for the very first time! From set up of various greenscreen captures including the famous Captain Kirk's Command Chair from the original TV Series, to putting the polish on 6 networked computer stations processing thousands of guests each day of the fair, his efforts generated close to 1/4 Million dollars revenue for the 17 day run! This was the 2nd STARTREK exhibition for Ty as he also ran a similar installation in the State of Michigan.

In recent past, Ty ran the entire photography subcontract for 'Cirque du Soleil's' North American tour of 'CORTEO'. Coordinating a fleet of great NIKON cameras, all operating on full remote through WiFi and covering the entire grounds of each of the GRAND CHAPITEAU locations--which encompasses over 2700 guests for each performance, he hired, trained and oversaw over 75 new photographers managing up to 10 performances weekly throughout the run. Post tour, Ty was promoted to open other markets & exhibitions which took him to the Dominican Republic, Florida's Atlantic Coast including Miami + the lovely Pt. St. Lucie, Viejo San Juan PUERTO RICO, Detroit MICHIGAN and finally to Gregolimano GREECE on Ile D'Ubee near Thessaloniki.

Now exhibiting his 2 year odyssey work ‘Hollywood by Light’ - a neon retrospective which debuted at the world famous Cineramadome - ARCLIGHT Cinemas on Sunset Boulevard in the heart of Hollywood California and enjoying private & public showings in Vancouver CANADA. Ty is a versatile photographer with a portfolio of work that spans creative endeavors like the HBL Collection, along with commercial, editorial, fashion and event photography.


Ty's keen eye for detail and extensive experience lensing around the globe in many countries & cities makes him a very sought after photographer. He's always at the ready for a new challenge! If you have a project or need some pretty pictures for your personal use, for your Company or Organization, or for your publication or presence on the worldwide web, contact Ty HERE.
