Phillip Banks is an Albuquerque, New Mexico photographer and videographer who began taking photos while in High School.  I was a photo nerd who spent much of my time taking photos and developing them in the make-shift darkroom I had built in the attic of our home.  That passion led me to explore all manner of visual arts, but my favorites - the ones that most satisfy my creative vision - are photography and videography.  

Using a combination of classical portraiture and photo journalistic documentation, I will capture your important life moments for posterity.  Please give me a call, text or email to ask any questions or schedule a date for your session.

Phil and Janet were the perfect photographers to capture our wedding. They went the extra mile to assure everything was going to go well the day of, by coming to the rehearsal in Edgewood and walking us through the little details. Although, our favorite part was when they put together a hard copy of our photo album, personalized exactly how we wanted it! The whole experience definitely earned a five star from us!

We loved working with Phil, who took our pictures for our wedding! Phil was very thoughtful and went the extra mile every step of the way, from our first meeting, in which he really got to know us individually and decipher our needs and style, to scouting the venue with us to find the best locations on site and come up with a plan for the day of the wedding, all the way to delivering a beautiful finished product with great pictures and a very nice customized album. Phil and Janet were both great to work with, and we appreciated all the special touches they made to make our wedding day feel special and unique. I would definitely recommend their services!

After working with Phil and Janet, I realized that they both were not just in it for the business, but we also made a great relationship with the two. On a business standpoint, Phil and Janet did an excellent job with their photos. Every photo was well thought out and precise! I could not thank Phil and Janet enough for all the help they provided and the great service they offered. Within this transaction, my wife and I also made two great friends. Phil and Janet have been the most amazing individuals we have worked with in a while because they took the time to get to know us!! For the price, they did better than anyone I could think of who would have attempted the photos. Overall, Phil and Janet are the most talented photographers I have met and worked with and are amazing people to make a relationship with!!! Recommended 150%!!! Thank you guys for all your generosity and kindness!!!

Phil and Janet were very professional and friendly from the beginning. They actively listened to our needs and went the extra mile whenever necessary. They showed up to our wedding rehearsal early to plan things out in advance and also helped us create a schedule for the wedding day itself... ...The photos came out great and the end result made my wife and parents very happy. I would highly recommend their services for any photography needs.

He personalizes his sessions by taking time to talk with his model and find out what their likes are and what they are looking for out of the photo shoot. He is an outstanding photographer! Thank you for making Samantha’s photos so spectacular!!

Fun atmosphere and lots of laughs. My sons and I had not taken family photos in almost 4 years and this experience was well worth the wait. Phillip really brought out our personalities. He also took photos of my son and his prom date this past Spring. I’ve referred several friends to him and they’ve all been very happy with the results.

I’m so happy with my daughters senior pictures. Phil Banks captured everything about her....her beauty, love of volleyball and her soul....looking forward to working with him again on family pictures. Highly recommend.

Phil did my son, Ryan’s, senior pictures, and they were the best pictures we have ever gotten of him. Phil took the time to get to know a little about Ryan and make him comfortable. Because Ryan walked away feeling great, and we walked away with great pictures we were beyond happy. We sent those photos to family and friends, and even used some of the images for his graduation announcements. I would higly recommend using Phillip Banks Photography, I know I will again.

Working with Phil has been an amazing experience. We used him for family photos in November and he did such and amazing job, we chose him for our son’s senior photos. He is very professional and scouted out the locations to use on both occasions. He had high quality equipment and was very detail oriented to make sure he captured the best photos possible. The images he provided to us were tastefully edited while still looking very natural. I am extremely happy with his work and will definitely be using him in the future to capture our family moments.
