Patrick has been photographing the world and its people since 1995. He first became intrigued with photography as a young child when he saw the beauty of nature captured within the pages of National Geographic. His love for photography grew deeper when he discovered the family photos his Grandmother had in her room. One of his fondest childhood memories was digging through the bottom drawer of her chest and admiring his family history captured in film. Then, like most every little boy, he discovered the lingerie section in a 1986 Sears mail order catalogue, a moment that solidified his aspiration to become a photographer. From there his desire to create imagery spawned with more ambition. With the advice of his father, “do what you love and you will never work a day in your life”, Patrick knew he found the one thing that he was happy to call his career.
While the childhood dream of photographing scantily clad women for catalogs never panned out, Patrick was able to find his true calling behind the camera, photographing people in their everyday lifestyles. His masterful photography techniques and strong desire to please his clients help establish the large portfolio which still continues to grow. With a focus on lifestyle and energy, he has been able to create stunning visual imagery for his clients, both national and international, which captures their detailed concept within his refined photos. His ultimate goal is to have his clients walk away with that satisfied feeling of success which we all know and love.
Having a wide range of experiences and skills helps him perfect his passion of photographing people. Patrick finds joy in the interaction, conversation, and connection made with each individual and the camera. Patrick is able to not only capture amazing photographs, but also build an in depth relationship with his clientele.
His clients are largely diverse but all have a common thread when it comes to Patrick’s photography needs: people. He has photographed and continues many relationship with clients such as AT&T, United, Devon Energy, Diamond Offshore, Hines, The Home Depot, LG, Marriott, Texas Health Resources, Schlumberger, Southwestern Energy, Waste Management, Weingarten, The University of Texas and USAA.
