Phil Cawley has recently completed a personal project entitled "Three Calla Lilies" which is a limited edition print run of only 100 prints. The project was borne out of the need to raise £8000.00 for a medical procedure for his girlfriend Liz who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis.

The print is a 20x25cm giclee print, each one is signed, numbered and comes complete with a certificate of authenticity. The price is just £80.00 plus post and packing.

In the short time since the project was launched 53 prints have already been sold.

A unique collection of photographs created by a widely-traveled photographer: beautiful images taken all around the world. Thanks to his job within the travel industry, Filip Zamorsky was able to circle the globe by sea twice, camera in hand, to create this unique collection of images. Presented as "Photo Books" (applications & PDF files) which you can soon download to your iPad/iPhone/iPod, the project is currently in the retouching stage. Each application will feature a different exotic location and will be linked with Filip's constantly updated website. After you perform the initial download of the image collections from Filip's website, you won't need an internet connection to browse through them as they will already be stored on your device. Filip is planning to extend this offer in the future, with the capability to purchase prints, for example. The website will keep you updated regarding all future developments related to the project.
