Richard Phibbs (born in Calgary, Alberta) has shot fashion and advertising campaigns for Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, and Calvin Klein. His editorial work has appeared in Vanity Fair, Vogue China, ESPN The Magazine, Paper magazine, Entertainment Weekly, and Conde Nast Traveler, among many others, and the best of his portraits and fashion photographs are featured in his first book Chasing Beauty (2010). His prints have been collected by, among others, Anderson Cooper, Francis Ford Coppola, and Bill Clinton. Phibbs believes photographs can change, inspire, and motivate us. His signature causes-children with AIDS and animals-are his inspiration. Born and raised in western Canada, Phibbs has received degrees from the University of Toronto and Parsons School of Design. Phibbs lives in New York City with his own rescued buddy, Finn.
