  • Marketing Data versus Information: My Challenge to You. (2/9/2017) - This Marketer's Looking For Answers. Can You Help? (This post was first published on Linked in, February 2016) As a marketer, I've spent countless hours wrestling with Data to provide my stakeholders with Information. It's a challenge that will never go away, for anyone who works in a role where things are routinely measured. Can ...
  • A Love Story, in need of a name… (10/18/2016) - I woke from a very intense dream this morning. This post is my attempt to capture this dream before it becomes a poor memory. It felt like a strong Act 1 Scene 1 from a movie or a novel to me, so I wanted to commit it to digital paper just in case I come ...
  • Cleaning Your Lay-Z-Spa Filter Whilst Saving £95 (9/5/2016) - So You've Got A Hot Tub... Well done! Aren't they great? We love ours, it's a Lay Z Spa Monaco. I'm told that all the filers look the same, whichever model you have. Like most people, we did a lot of reading about how to maintain the water quality to keep our family and friends ...
  • Small Goals, Small Achievements, Happy Days (12/23/2015) - Serendipity Feeds Enthusiasm Recently, two linked pieces of good fortune resulted in me achieving a goal I hadn't realised I'd had: to have one of my musical heroes welcome a PhillConnellPhotos print into his life. I'm going to tell you the story. If you're looking for instant gratification or 'YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED NEXT' ...
  • Suffering from Overwhelm? No, just bad English. (3/17/2015) - Suffering from Overwhelm? Aaaargh! I'm overwhelmed with terrible written English and it's all the internet's fault. The greatest democratic vehicle in the history of historical things has enabled language to be messed up. I'm all in favour of misappropriating the written word for comedic effect. Puns and other plays on words are funny: fact. However, ...
  • Hoodie Season Is Upon Us (10/14/2014) - Time To Buy Those Winter Warmers I was sat at my desk in work today, considering how it was just that little bit too cold to have not brought a cardigan in. Searching through my 'top drawer of mystery' for a Cup-A-Soup to bring my core temperature back up to a normal level, I remembered ...
  • Just A Thought About Photography (7/1/2014) - I saw this and liked it. The nice people at Snapknot actually asked me to post it, so that's exactly what I'm doing. Courtesy of: SnapKnot If you've never seen Steve McCurry's photos, you've missed out. Have a look at his site. Tell him Phill sent you. 🙂
  • You’ve Got Another Life To Live (5/22/2014) - Somebody very close to me said something amazing over the weekend. It went a little bit like this: "So, you're about 40 now. So you have ANOTHER LIFE to live now before you die". Think about that for a minute. If you're fortyish now, you should have another life to live before you die. Let's ...
  • How to remove a photo filter when it’s stuck on your lens (1/31/2014) - Oh NO! I Can't Get The Polarising Filter Off My Lens! I know I'm not the only person this has happened to. I felt a bit of a fool when I realised I couldn't unscrew my fairly expensive filter from my (much more expensive) lens recently. Looking into the problem I discovered that lots of ...
  • Club Competition Entries – 2014 POTY (1/27/2014) - Isn't a POTY something a baby poos in? No. It's the Photographer Of The Year competition. This will be the first one I've ever entered. The competition, run by my local Geek Club, is run over 4 quarterly sessions and I need to submit my first batch of 5 photos this week. I ran a ...
