What people are saying...

I love Patrick's work! It's fresh, inventive, original, and stylistic! When you see his work, there is no doubt in your mind who the photographer is. If you want photos that will stand out, then you need to book him. With the over saturation of so-called 'Instagram' type artist, it's nice to see someone who remembers what the craft is really about...the beauty of the form." -Ericka Hampton


Why Hire a Commercial Photographer?!

Whenever you see a photograph in a magazine, newspaper, advertisement, billboard, or product packaging, a commercial photographer is usually behind them. You can see the work of a commercial photographer across many industries, but it is very easy to not consider the amount of skill, patience, and experience they posses and dismiss them as mere picture takers. 

Because of our creativity, commercial photographers are great for achieving a variety of different looks. We are widely experienced with taking pictures in different types of environments. For your assignment you need a photographer with the best equipment and gear to achieve the look you are striving for. As commercial photographers, we possess an extensive amount of knowledge of lighting, lenses, reflections, camera settings, after effects, and modern retouch techniques. 

Deciding to hire me as your commercial photographer will ensure professional quality images each and every time.


In summary, if you need any of these, I've got you covered...

Nam tempus gravida ligula non sodales. Vivamus a mattis ante. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Nunc non tortor dui.

There will always be 'more to come...'

Pocket Girl Magazine is another project that I have a lot of faith in. I am looking to put the world’s most beautiful girls in your pocket and this is another endeavor I feel could use influence from as many creative minds as possible. Future issues will feature models from different cities, states, and countries!

I am also looking to try my hand at 3D photography again. It is something that, when done well, can really put the viewer right in the middle of an amazing shot. It has become a norm with movies, almost a luxury, photography is only natural to follow suit. I look forward to expanding some themes I’ve tested in the past couple years such as “Snow Angels”, “Girlz –N- Gunz”, and anything else that will leave people wonder, ‘how’d he do that?!"
