Midnight At The Oasis Lighting Clinic - Mentor

Phillips launched his career as a wedding photographer. He shared a consultation room
in his parent’s floral business, Carol-Lynn Originals.  Here, Phillips’s work adorned; the walls
and with the steady traffic of weddings, his business continued to thrive over the years. 
Once he and his wife began raising their family, Phillips decided to pursue fewer weddings
and more portraits so that he could use his time on weekends to be dad to his two sons.

Phillips is driven by his steadfast faith, and he gives back to the community by utilizing his unique talents in a variety of ways.  For the past four years, Phillips has headed up a team of 30 plus volunteers to photograph close to a thousand people in three hours. Participants receive their portrait back before leaving that evening. The event is called Jesus Prom, and is a prom hosted for mentally and physically challenged adults.

He was also involved with The Help Portrait Project, which takes place in December at locations all around the world. At this event, people who are not able to afford to have their portraits taken can do so for free.  Here again, a large group of people from hairdressers, makeup artists, photographers and many more give of their time and talents to give to people in their community. “There is so much dignity involved in having a portrait, where people say, I’m of value.  They can take that portrait and pass it down to the next generation of their family just as any other family who has their portrait taken.  Why wouldn’t you want to be a part of something like that?”
