Phil Hamilton, Placerville, Ca. Member Since September 2011 Artist Statement My passion has always been automobiles and photography. I spent many years in the typical photography mode. I was OK but my photo's looked like everyone else's, nothing special. Then the digital age came along and presented me with new opportunities. I immediately became interested in the software that allowed me to manipulate my photos. I played with photo's for many hours until I developed a way to make them look like paintings. After awhile people started asking me to make digital paintings for them. It has now blossomed into a business and I could not be happier. RPM PhotoArt is now in Placerville, Ca. as a business that caters to car enthusiasts who are looking for personal artwork of their beautiful automobiles.
