George R Phile

I am a native of San Francisco where I received my first camera. I joined the Navy after high school, was discharged in 1965 and moved to Houston Texas where I joined a major international oil company, retiring in 1999. My interest is mostly in outdoor photography such as landscapes, travel, nature and anything we have seen on the sea cruises my wife and I have been on. I am primarily a Nikon user but only because they had the D700 on sale at the time I was starting a business after retiring.

I exhibited at local art shows in the Houston area in the 1980’s exhibiting framed and matted prints and am a member of the Houston Photographic Society which hosts an information meeting and a photographic print competition each month.

My wife and I have had the opportunity to travel to different parts of the world and have been awed by God and man’s creations. My photographs are a small attempt to visually show some of the wonderful things God and man has created.
