Makes and Takes

Making, Photography & Art by Phil Scarlett

Hi and thanks for taking the time to visit my site.

Based in Nottingham, UK I'm a photographer of mainly wildlife but with a few landscapes thrown in, I'm also a maker and up cycler of various different things which nearly always involve wood and woodturning, hence the name Makes & Takes.

I try and make every piece a unique and usable art piece and love to try new things especially using colours.

I occasionally do commission pieces, drop me an email and I will see what I can do.

My Images have been published on various websites and magazines; most images are available for commercial use through Adobe Stock
