philclarkehill philclarkehill

I’m a video and photo journalist, documentary dp and director, with over twelve years international field experience. Often working with culturally-marginalised communities, I aim to bridge the gap to show their side of the story in the mainstream media.

A Latin American specialist, I have dedicated much of my career to the continent, regularly working throughout the region since 2011, in particular in Brazil. A photojournalist since 2007, I started shooting film and video in 2015. I cover current affairs, features, environment, culture and development, operating either as a self-shooting director editor or part of a team on larger productions.

My work is regularly broadcast and published by major outlets including the BBC, the Guardian, National Geographic, Aljazeera Network, CNN, Elle magazine, VOA, and Vice. I also produce commercial content for brands and NGOs including Airbnb, Google, Somerset House, World Stroke Organisation, UNHCR, UNDP and the WHO. My photography collection is represented by Getty Images.

I’ve received grants from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and One World Media for projects in Brazil, plus bursaries from Screen Skills and the Rory Peck Trust. I was a finalist for the Amnesty Media Award and Environmental Photographer of the Year, and have been awarded by the Royal Photographic Society and the International Photography Awards.

Most importantly though, it’s all about the work; what it shows; what it teaches; what it represents – hopefully it speaks for itself.

The battle for Roald Dahl Woods
Buckinghamshire
By philclarkehill
01 Oct 2020

In October, the NET (national eviction team) on behalf of the HS2 project evicted protesters from Roald Dahl Woods aka Jones Hill woods in the Chilterns, Buckinghamshire. The woodland was the inspiration for Roald Dahl's book - Fantastic Mr Fox and is due to be felled for the construction of a viaduct. This is opposed by local residents and environmental groups alike, stating that there are illegal land grabs and environmental damage being caused by HS2. The eviction attracted much national press, partly due to the reappearance of Daniel Hooper aka Swampy, who returned to the direct action movement for the first time in years at this event.
