Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I try to be as prepared as possible prior to every job, often asking questions up until the last moment before leaving home. At events, I tend to take a LOT of photos so as to give clients as many choices as possible when it comes time to actually use the photos. I make every attempt to get photographs to my clients as quickly and as seamlessly as possible, and I am always of good nature, from first contact until the delivery of the photos. Cliché though it might seem, I most enjoy meeting the people I work with. The San Francisco area boasts such a diverse populace in background, personalities and interests that it's a pleasure meeting and chatting with them. As a relative newcomer to the Bay Area, it's also interesting to meet those who are lifelong residents of the city, as well as to learn how non-native San Franciscans came to live here.

Patrick did a fantastic job with our corporate group at a recent conference our staff attended. I am so happy that I hired him and will definitely consider him for any further corporate photography that I am needing done in the future. Thank you Patrick!

Commercial Photography

Patrick was fantastic to work with, and an excellent photographer. He really set the bar high for our event photography. He was able to capture interesting shots of not-so-interesting subjects. Patrick was professional, laid back, and easy to work with. There was a bit of schedule misunderstanding due to this being such a last-minute engagement, but he kindly worked it out with us and all was well. We're definitely interested in working again with Patrick in the future.

Portrait Photography

From the get go, I really appreciated the responsiveness and detail-orientation of Patrick. We were in SF for only a few days and didn't know where the best location for a shoot would be. He gave detailed suggestions on where we could take the photos and also made sure we could work together within schedule. Meeting him and working with him was lovely. He put us at ease and made sure he got the best from us. I'm so pleased with how the photos turned out. They were just as I'd hoped they would be. The selection process and the back and forth was also super easy. He was flexible with payment options and gave us lots of great shots to choose from. Really enjoyed working with Patrick and highly recommended. Thank you, Patrick!

Thanks so much Jah! It was a pleasure to meet you and Beth and Joe, and to chat a bit along the way. I'm glad the weather cooperated and we were able to get photos with which you were pleased.

Wedding and Event Photography

We engaged Patrick for a 1-day corporate photo project involving shooting a lab facility and executive headshots. Patrick was very professional and exceeded our expectations. He took the extra time before the shoot date to scope out the location, which saved set-up time on the day of the shoot. He was professional, friendly and easy to work with. I would highly recommend his services!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My prices vary depending upon the service I provide... I am most amenable to working with my clients' budgets provided I am paid fairly for the work that is asked/expected of me.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I am pretty flexible with how I work with new clients. Depending upon the type of work I've been hired to do, I might require a deposit. Typically, if I am hired to photograph a conference or similar event that won't happen for several months, I will request a deposit, with final payment expected either the day of the event or upon delivery of the final images.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My university degree is in Visual Communications Technology, which trained me more as a technician and/or problem solver. It was during a ten-year stint as the supervisor of a photographics unit that I began to explore photography from a creative standpoint, inspired by Chicago portrait photographer Marc Hauser and the late lighting wizard, Dean Collins.
