Phil Atiyeh

Phil’s past life in helping companies develop and launch new products has offered a natural path into photography where similar technical and aesthetic elements must work together. While he’s always had an interest in photography, it wasn’t until he left the workforce in 2019 (and joined the ‘playforce’), where he accelerated and expanded his photography with greater passion.

Phil has received numerous awards as a member of the New Haven Camera Club as well as merit awards from various photography associations.  His work has been displayed at the Small Stones Festival of the Arts in Grafton, MA, as well as the Milford Arts Council in CT.  Perhaps most notable, he was awarded the cover photo of the Alpaca Owners Guide (yes, believe it or not, there’s a magazine for this!) for his image.

An avid woodworker, all of Phil’s framed images from the photographic print to the matting or a hand-made frame, is all created and assembled by him as a finished work of art.

Conference Program:

Creating Colorful, Abstract Works of Art from a Single Photograph

Explore your artistic side by creating dozens of colorful, abstract images from a single photograph.  The presentation will take you step-by-step through the process where a select array of Photoshop tools are used to create a large, colorful master file – or tapestry – where images are ultimately extracted. A number of other examples are presented showing variations of the process and the boundless image styles that can be created.
