About Us

The Head and the Heart is an artistic collaboration between Michael Phillips Photography and Jess V Fine Art. This collaboration is based on love, inspiration, faith and a lot of hard work. While Michael strives for technical perfection and an intellectual exploration in his work, Jessica approaches her art from a deep emotional connection to the subjects of her work and using her art as a tool to heal herself and others.

Michael and Jessica travel extensively, documenting their experiences and sharing them through their photography and fine art available as custom prints for home and commercial display. Their imagery is all developed with intent and purpose.

The photography prints and painting reproductions available for sale here will donate part of the proceeds towards the causes they believe need funding and awareness. Michael and Jessica have different beliefs in life, but the goal remains the same - give back and help those that need it.

You will find a variety of imagery on this site that reflects our artistic expression and our experiences. We hope to inspire you with the work that we’ve carefully crafted. Besides the imagery on this site, you will find hand-picked printing methods to order a top-quality piece custom made to fit your space. The mission of H/H is to raise awareness about important issues and connect people.



At the age of 6 Michael's mom told him he'd be an artist in original home of Long Island, NY. Years of school, the family business and jobs in the service industry taught him otherwise. It was the gift of a small4 megapixel Kodak digital camera and a pirated copy of Photoshop that reignited the desire to create an image once more.It started with weddings and high school seniors’ portraits, nightclubs, association meetings and corporate parties. For those that think this is one big party, please realize, this was a lifestyle of perpetual work. It was travel and the sweat of hiking up a mountain with a tripod over the shoulder that reignited the emotional fuel of capturing “something real” again. 15 years of professional photography experience later, Michael is the same boy of 6 years old, playing in the dirt in pursuit of a finished picture to show off to the world. Michael scours the world seeking new vistas to capture and new forms of printing to inspire others to lead a “life less ordinary.” His love of traveling has shaped his perspective in people and in art. His lust for life and a better image fuel an impressive body of work. This work has been published internationally and Michael continues to photograph events in Las Vegas and beyond. He currently works with the ‘soon-to-be’ Las Vegas Raiders and photographs other Las Vegas organizations he believes in. Michael is available for bespoke photography projects, large fine art printing and creative endeavors that gives back.

Jess V is a United States veteran. Raised in Las Vegas, she served in the United States Marines,after graduating High School. Her two deployments to Iraq in 2003 and 2004 impacted her life forever. After attending different veterans’ retreats. Jessica realized that she was not alone - many veterans were impacted by their deployments. This realization inspired Jessica to take action and become involved in the veteran community. Jessica raises awareness about post traumatic stress/moral injury and about the different treatments that are available to our vets. Jess V has created a fine art collection to give back to the veterans retreats she has attended called Lux &Oscurita Veterans Edition. Every image from the Lux and Oscurita will donate 10% to a veteran organization. Her goal is to use her art to raise awareness about the challenges our veterans are suffering from and to give back to these non-profit retreats.
