I was born Philippe Mion, in Paris, France.
I moved to London when I was 22
I moved to Manchester 4 years later and came across some really nice people who were Buddhists. I joined the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2001 and became Vibhuti.
Buddhism is a way of life; it helps me grow and gives me a healthy perspective on life.
I now work as a Mental Health Nurse and I have a daughter who will soon be 8 (and lots of photographs of her!)
I live in Lancashire with my partner Kathryn.
I’ve always enjoyed photography and taken many photographs over the years, I used to develop my own images in the dark room and even had a go at Lith printing (after going to an exhibition of Anton Corbijn’s work in Manchester).
These days I use digital equipment and I love my Mac, Aperture, Nik Software and spending time editing my shots to make them look just the way I want them.
