About me

Who is Foggy?

I’m in my mid-40’s, born and bred in Yorkshire, England, now resident of South West France for the past 4 years where I live with my wife and 2 children. I am a Filmmaker, Photographer, Writer, Musician and Digital Cartoon Artist. My real name is Phil Hanson, my friends call me Foggy. You can see plenty of pics of what I look like on the various pages of this website.

Where did the nickname Foggy originate from?

I play at a monthly poker night with some friends, where I live in France (only for small change and laughs, nothing serious!!). One night a few months ago I was given the nickname as a play on words with my name!

What is the purpose of this website?

This website is the central hub where the 5 corners of the IamFoggy brand unite. These being Filmmaking, Photography, Writing, Music, and Cartoons..

What is IamFoggy?

IamFoggy is the name for my multi-channel creative brand. It’s something I am very proud of and am working to grow organically. As a creative person my passions extend to all the 5 corners of creativity you see on this website. IamFoggy is a way to combine them all in a single brand. Each are interchangeable, each compliment one another, often I will combine one content with another, for example using my own music in one of my short-films.

What is the strategy for the IamFoggy brand?

Ultimately IamFoggy is a multi-channel creative brand which sets out to explore all that is possible in the 5 corners of Artistic creativity, as outlined above. The long term goal is to turn IamFoggy into a self sustaining Artistic business with strong revenue streams from all 5 content areas, brought about through the production of original material and collaboration with like-minded creators. IamFoggy is not a service provider, unfortunately at this time we do not make wedding videos, corporate videos, portrait photography or offer ghost-writing on blogs or books (to give a few examples).

How do I contact you?
