George Philipas

Cape Town, South Africa


After completing a postgraduate diploma in photojournalism at the London College of Communication (formerly London College of Printing) in 2001, I have worked extensively from the African Continent. I currently work much of the year from Nairobi, Kenya although am permanently located in Cape Town, South Africa.

I am signed with AMO (Africa Media Online), Polaris and Getty Images and have freelanced for Reuters. I am available for commissioning through World Assignment and the World Photography Collection.

I have undertaken a wide variety of commissioned assignments for NGO’s and international agencies including UNAIDS, UN-WHO, the Clinton Foundation and have worked extensively with many other charities and agencies including UN OCHA-Somalia and Save the Children.

I have been published in the New York Times, Independent (UK), Observer (UK) & Grazia amongst many others published through agencies.

I received an Honourable Mention at the Prix de la Photographie Awards (2009) for photographs taken during the Kenyan Election Upheaval in January 2008.
