Phil Doyle has always been one of my favourite people to capture photographically. I would argue its fair to say that Phil was amongst the first to embrace the renaissance esque period of Parkour when the possibilities of leg-based movements were first truly elaborated on. Striding on rails and hurdle-precisions have only recently come into widespread circulation in respect to Parkour techniques. Back in 2005 and before, arguably arm based movements were more dominant (catpasses, armjumps, laches etc). In accordance to this, I personally find Phil to cast particularly aesthetic positions mid-movement.
