Phos3 - Where did this name come from? Well after a great deal of thought it was decided that they wanted something unique without using their names as many photographers do. Yet when they want to take credit of a photo they can put their individual names on it.
Phos - Is Greek for light. Phos is pronounced Foss
3 Superscript - is multi-dimensional - It is perfect balance, aesthetics, tripod, rule of thirds, a funnel for energy, 3 dimensions, the 3 elements, earth, wind and fire, black/white and colour, 3 components of water H2O, and Light - Vision - Emotion
Speaking of Light - Vision - Emotion, here is a brief description of how these 3 tag words came to be. There must be light in order to see. Photography is about capturing light. A Photograph cannot be taken without light. The vision is the composition of the frame. It's the artist's eye and how we perceive what we are seeing. And last but not least, Emotion - "hopefully if we have done our job right, using light to capture the vision that we see, it will stimulate some sort of an emotion within you, letting you feel the story."
"We Shoot To Thrill"
This deep thought process flows into their way of how they photograph their subjects, whether its weather, nature, landscapes special events or people.
