About Me

Graduate Student at GWU SMPA. Photographer. Journalist. Campaign Junkie.

My name is Phillip Waller and I am a recent graduate of the University of Mississippi. For the next two years, I will be in Washington, D.C., at the George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs pursuing an M.A. in Media and Strategic Communication. This is my homepage with links to my photography page, my blog and my latest projects.
I have photographed for a variety of organizations, including Disney/ESPN Images, C Spire Wireless 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.
As a public policy student at the University of Mississippi, my thesis research followed the information flows from Mississippi county party organizations to constituents in precincts that have recently switched U.S. House districts. After reviewing the content from nearly 20 interviews with county party chairs, I was able to demonstrate deep divisions in the activities of the majority and minority parties of each county I targeted. My conversations revealed a broad spectrum of issues that I hope to address with future research as a student and professional communicator. Check out my resume or request access below to my portfolio for more information about what I can do.
My blog features everything from my latest marketing projects and client shoots, to the recipes I tried last night while cooking for family and friends. You can filter my posts by category if you’re looking for a particular topic. Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or professional inquiries. You can reach me through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or on my About page.
