Meet Phil

Team Photographer
Phil is the magic behind all of the Upstate Curious Team's beautiful home photos. 

Born and raised in NYC, Phil Mansfield moved to the Hudson Valley in 2006 to continue his lifestyle photography. His architectural and interior design photos have been featured in Architectural Digest, Vogue Living, International Architecture and Design, GNE Architecture, City Limits, The National, and frequently in the “House & Home” section of The New York Times

Phil is also a food photographer and stylist, with editorial work including Food & Wine, Pastry & Baking Magazine, USA Today, Associated Press, Edible Hudson, The New York Times, SoGood, and Thrillist. Phil teaches photography at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, where he designed the curriculum for the college’s first food photography course.

In addition to being the photographer for several cookbooks (published by Wiley and Bloomsbury), Phil has done two architecture books: Graffiti NYC (Turtleback, 2007) and Weekend Retreats (Rizzoli, 2009). His work has been exhibited at the Center for Photography at Woodstock, and The Arts Upstairs in Phoenicia, NY. His solo exhibition “Life Above the Store” appeared at the Reher Center Gallery in Kingston, NY in 2018. 

Phil is an avid year-round hiker and birdwatcher. He frequents the Hudson Valley’s outstanding music scene, often to see his daughter perform, and co-founded Catskill Ukulele Group with his wife to build ukulele collections in libraries in the region. He runs a monthly ukulele class at the library where he currently resides, in Phoenicia, NY.
