About Me

My name is Phillip Waller and I am a young communications professional working in Washington, D.C. After graduating from the Lott Leadership Institute and Meek School of Journalism at the University of Mississippi, I moved to the city to pursue a master’s degree in Media and Strategic Communication at George Washington University. This is my homepage with links to my photography page, my blog and my latest projects.
I have experience managing and organizing strategic media campaigns: One of my favorite projects was  a community rally at the University of Mississippi that had 2000+ attendees. The Associated Press, The New York Times, CNN, and local and regional outlets all covered the event.
I have a passion for digital media & design: I am familiar with most of the Adobe Creative Suite, primarily working with Photoshop, InDesign and Premiere to produce graphics, GIFs, videos, and other digital content.
I am an experienced photographer: My past clients include Disney/ESPN Images, C Spire Wireless, Mud & Magnolias Magazine, and multiple local and regional publications through the AP wire. My broad experience helps me to create quality images in the widest variety of environments. You can see drafts of my professional work on this password protected page.

Family Vacation to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons

Just got back from an incredible adventure out west. I flew 2200 miles to meet my family in Salt Lake City for a week of sightseeing, hiking, and photography. By the time I returned to DC, I had snapped nearly 80GB of RAW photos and driven 1100 miles through Utah,...

Cherry Blossoms in Peak Bloom

The cherry blossoms are in full bloom on the Mall. Even with the threat of rain (and, later, a brief downpour), there were throngs of tourists out, making it difficult to navigate some of the narrower stretches of the sidewalk around the Tidal Basin. Check out the...
