As a car collector and professional photographer, I have integrated both my passions into producing automotive art. My background is in design and I have 40 years professional photography experience with 23 national awards. They include awards from New York Art Directors Show, New York Film Festival, Chicago Film Festival, San Francisco Art Directors Show, American Institute Graphic Arts, Communication Arts Magazine and most recently the 9th Annual International Color Awards in 2016.
"It is an incredible achievement to be selected among the best with 3 awards from the 5,678 entries coming from 77 counties we received this year," said Basil O'Brien, the awards Creative Director. Phil Toy’s ‘Golden Gate Metropolitan’ in Americana professional category, represents contemporary color photography at its finest, and we're pleased to present him with the title of “Americana Winner Professional”. "The variety of entries was astonishing," said juror Lilli Langenheim, Senior Art Director of DDB Berlin. "Some of the work is truly powerful; Fine Art, Sport, Nature in professional was really inspiring" added jury member Daria Bonera, Owner of DB Agency in Milan.

Through my automotive passion, vision and experience, I create custom automotive portraits, custom auto collection albums and magazine spreads.
With my design sense I am able to conceptualize and design photographic
solutions, placing cars in befitting settings to capture the aura and feeling of automotive beauties. I encompass design, color, light, dynamic lines taking auto beauties to photographic levels that have not been seen.
