Phil's captivating photographic art, accompanied by emotive and motivational poetic passages is nothing short of brilliant.

Hi, I am a writer, producer and film director. I have worked for many years in Australia & Los Angeles on many blockbusters and have written numerous screenplays for feature film. I recently bought a book titled “ LIVING WATER” written and beautifully shot by Philip Thurston. I have known this extremely talented individual for many years and had the privilege to have him work with me on many occasions on photo shoots.
His work as a photographer is second to none. His creativity, eye for detail and ability to capture amazing pictures is absolutely astounding and breathtaking.
I have been anticipating the release of “ LIVING WATER” for some time and when I first saw the books cover protector, I was already impressed and I couldn’t wait to see the book. The books hard cover was impressive and the opening page title looked great, I couldn’t wait to turn the page again…
As I expected, Philips ocean photography was majestic. His creativity with the photos taken is impressive and really captures ones eye and imagination. If the photography wasn’t eye captivating enough, I was so astounded by his ability to write poetry. Page after page of heart felt and soul capturing lines, some poems brought me to tears.
Page after page of wonderful poems and incredible photos all bound together in a well set out and well thought through presentation.
I highly recommend the book “ LIVING WATER”, it will be a book you will cherish and read over time and time again. When you’re feeling down or just need a little inspiration, just open this book to any page.
