About Me

My name is Phillip Waller and I am a young communications professional working in Washington, D.C. I moved to the city to pursue a master’s degree in Media and Strategic Communication at George Washington University after earning degrees in public policy and journalism from the University of Mississippi. This is my homepage with links to my photography, my blog and my resume.

After years of creating content for digital and print platforms, I have learned to combine compelling copy with rich visuals. I am an experienced photographer who has worked with clients like Disney/ESPN Images, C Spire Wireless, Mud & Magnolias Magazine, and the Associated Press. I also work with Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere, and a variety of other tools to produce graphics, GIFs and videos to complement my digital content. 

You can see drafts of my professional work on this password protected page. Request access in the contact form below. 

If you have any other questions about what I can do for you, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Think I'd fit well with your team? Need to book a shoot?

Critical Discourse Analysis and Why Context Matters

Humans are complex creatures that seek simplicity. The human brain receives a firehose of sensory information, sorting the relevant from the irrelevant at warp speed, and processing that information into a set of simple decisions. The most complex deep-learning...

Fresh Air
