Phillip Blume

Award-Winning Photographer, Philanthropist, & Industry Educator

Phillip & Eileen Blume are award-winning photographers who are just crazy enough to believe art can change the world. The dynamic duo quickly transformed their rural home studio into a luxury brand and official “fastest growing business” that now works with clients worldwide. Also owners of an associate photographer studio, the Blumes’ personal priority remains charitable projects that aid children living in extreme poverty. Phillip is a monthly contributor to Shutter Magazine, and together the Blumes speak at many top industry events, including WPPI, Inspire, and ShutterFest. The Blumes have also appeared on CreativeLIVE, and have shared their inspiring vision for more meaningful photography on the TEDx stage. They are founders of ComeUnity Workshops (coming to a city near you soon!), and live with their three young children in rural Georgia.
