A long time ago, in an academy far, far away, two recruits joined to fight the fight and see the galaxy. There names were Steve Storm and Tommy Trooper and they became best friends!

Both of them were trouble makers, very childish and would never follow orders, but somehow they never got kicked out of the academy, mostly through blackmail and bribing. After an unfortunate incident with commanding officer and a Wookie, a practical joke that went too far, they were banished to the back end ofthe universe,the outer rejoins where the backward under developed planets reside, so they were ordered to land on a particularly boring planet, Earth.

Upon landing, they tried many jobs, window cleaners, bouncers, accountants, but in the end, they started working for a photographer, based in the UK…and history was made.

Phil has been a professional photographer now for a few years, coming from a background of video production since 1992, when he started a production company with his father, which is still running today.

He’s also a huge Star Wars fan and still has some SW toys from when he was a wee lad. Two of them are Steve & Tommy, which he bought a few years back and started taking photos of them, but now, they travel everywhere with him, in his camera bag and seem to have more days out than Phil does!

It’s all done for a bit of fun. Phil teaches photography workshops for adults with learning difficulties, so Steve & Tommy help a lot. Plus, you’re never too old to play with toys! That’s what he keeps telling himself.

If you have an idea for the boys or would like to maybe have a shoot with them, simply use the form on the contact page.
