Marta Gutierrez Rumoroso interviews Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service's photographer
He loves his job. That's the main reason Chris Phillips works as a Fire Service Photographer in Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service. "Most of my work is outdoors, I never know what's going to happen next; it isn't routine 'office work' from a desk," he explains.
Nowadays, 20 years after completing his degree and having worked as an industrial photographer, he has a new life with the Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, where he's worked for the past seven years. He comments, "I have never liked wedding and portrait work. I'm scared of it - I feel much safer at fires."
For him it's very difficult to remember individual assignments as the Fire Service photographer because he has completed many hundreds of jobs. In addition, he has to respect confidentiality about certain aspects of his job, so he can't give a lot of details about many of them.
