Phillip C. Roullard has been a professional photographer since graduating from Brooks Institute in 1993, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in photography.
Phil's background as a park ranger and naturalist contributes greatly to his understanding of the outdoor subjects he enjoys photographing. Beneficial and pest insects are just one of Phil's favorite subjects, which include herbs and spices, xeriscape and drought-tolerant plants, organic fruits and vegetables, public and private gardens, garden shows, invasive exotic plants and landscapes.
Phil has taught photo clinics and led workshops for A-16, a San Diego outdoor recreation store. He also teaches photo business classes for California State University San Diego Extension.
Phil's photographs have been used extensively in exhibits, publications and websites for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Tijuana Estuary National Estuarine Research Reserve. His photographs have appeared in National Audubon Field Guides, National Geographic books, National Wildlife, Ranger Rick and My Big Back Yard, Canadian Garden and AmericanHome and Gardening.
