Philip Andelman graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts film program in 1999 and headed out to Los Angeles where he began working on music videos. After two years as a cinematographer, Philip joined Partizan Entertainment as a director and for the past six years has been directing commercials and music videos for clients such as Norah Jones, Beyonce, Rihanna, NFL, American Express, Jay Z, John Mayer, and The Jonas Brothers,. He has been nominated for numerous MVPA awards including Director of the Year in 2007. Alongside film work, Philip has recently, inadvertently returned to photography. Having started in high school by working with Annie Leibovitz and Mark Seliger, and then shooting the Grateful Dead throughout their last year of touring, Philip began working closely in the past couple of years with a select handful of musicians, casually following them on and off the road. From the Beasties Boys and Jack White, to Jay Z and Beck, Philip's still work has evolved out of his love of music and travel, his series of photographs resembling scrapbooks chronicling quotidian life.
