Phil has a great way with making folks feel at ease, consequently creating a great atmosphere to get good results. He took some excellent photos of our Executive Board members for the Legislative Student Organizations. He was organized professional and took care of meeting all of our needs in a very timely fashion. It was a pleasure to work with him. We will definitely use his photography services again!!

Phil did such an amazing job with my grad pictures! Being new in town I had no idea who to turn to. I was a bit concern over taking my grad photos here in Austin mainly because I am an Aggie. He did an amazing job picking a scenery that showcased the Aggie Spirit! He had such an great attitude, and vision throughout the whole session. I highly recommend for everyone to hire Phil as a photographer! He will do an amazing job capturing those special memories for a lifetime! Can't wait til I get to work with him again! ��

If you are looking for someone to take your portraits for graduation/grad school/jobs, I would HIGHLY recommend Phil!! I had no issues at all whatsoever! He takes a look at everything that can affect your picture from the lighting, to the background, to even REFLECTIONS from any windows yall might be near! I needed some headshots done for my graduate school application and he made SURE they were 1000% presentable! He has such a passion for photography and it shows in the way he captures everything that surrounds you in your photo! I don't trust anyone else to do the work he does, he won't half the work, he will go above and beyond to make sure you're happy with your pictures! Will definitely go to him for graduation pictures!!

Phil took my UT grad pictures and he did an excellent job! He knew all the best spots on campus, sent me the proofs the next day, and returned the edited photos quickly. He even brought champagne and confetti to the shoot! I so enjoyed working with him and would recommend him to anyone looking for great pictures!

Phil is AMAZING! Good pricing, excellent quality with exceptional service. He took family photos for my mother’s birthday present and let me tell ya it wasnt’t easy getting us all together. But Phil was patient, professional and fun. He had us laughing and enjoying the stress of picture taking! Who would have guessed it could be so fun. The pictures were amazing. It took a few days to even choose which ones I wanted because I wanted everything! He will be my go to for professional pictures from now on! Phil, you’re absolutely wonderful! Thank you sir!!!!!

Phil Butler Photography Q&A

Phil Butler Photography Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

That old saying of "Luck is What Happens When Preparation Meets Opportunity" comes to mind. The best photos just seem to happen, so I've learned over the years to always have my camera at arm's reach. I've painstakingly prepared for shoots only to have the weather ruin everything. As a photographer you often have to improvise and work with whatever conditions you have (unless you are in the studio and can control everything).

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

Communication is key. The more the better. You should ask about time, location, desired shots,etc. The more you can tell someone about what you want, the more likely you and the photographer will be able to work together to make your vision happen.

What do you love most about your job?

How happy clients are when they get their photos back. I love seeing them change their profile pictures on social media. That's how I know they love it. It's very rewarding to go on to LinkedIn and see so many of my connections are using photos I took as their first impression to the world.

What inspired you to start your own business?

This is going to sound trivial, but I really really needed a new computer and I couldn't afford one. So I decided to monetize my photography "hobby" for some extra money and before I knew it I had the money for the computer. Clients keep coming, so I keep snapping photos.

Why should our clients choose you?

I know getting your picture taken can be uncomfortable for some people so I really strive to make my sessions light and fun. I feel like time flies during shoots because of it. I also want every client to love their photos so I'm willing to do what ever that takes. I want my clients to be as hands on or as hands off as they'd like during the process.
