Meet Phillip and Eileen Blume

Phillip and Eileen Blume are award-winning photographers who believe in art's power to change the world. Having transformed their home studio– located in America's highest-poverty market– into an official "fastest growing business," they now work with wedding and portrait clients worldwide. They are founders of ComeUnity Workshops for photographers and are directors of TriggerHappy, a popular portrait photographers' community in Atlanta, GA. Phillip and Eileen are focused on humanitarian projects that benefit children in extreme poverty such as their documentary film "Lost Boys of Paradise." The Blumes have appeared on CreativeLIVE, shared their vision for meaningful photography on the TEDx stage and speak annually at multiple industry events. Phillip is a published writer, and his articles can be found each month at Barnes and Noble. The Blumes live with their children in Georgia where they love hiking, good conversation, and spontaneous dance parties.

Q & A with Phillip

What's your life motto? I always say "live for life" — reminding myself that life should be full, not a mere chore or to-do list. In our business, this finds its way into our Vision statement: "Celebrating life and reclaiming life where it's being destroyed, through the power of visual storytelling and to God's glory," referring to both the ‘pretty’ side our fashion/wedding work as well as our more difficult personal projects in third world slums.

Why do you love photography? Photography is powerful. Human beings are visual creatures; we're biologically wired to react to imagery. Choose stories that are worthwhile, and photography can change the world.

If you could have any superpower, what would you choose? Time travel! Always trying to make up for lost time.
