I highly recommend Patrick Power! I needed a professional portrait for a legal job application, and I hadn't had one taken in over 20 years. I wanted it to be professional, but also unique. I wasn't sure how to find a photographer, so I just put out a bid on thumbtack. Patrick responded very quickly and with a very reasonable price. I had resigned myself to just getting a studio portrait with a neutral background, but Patrick had the idea of meeting at City Hall to take the photo. I was very nervous and self-conscious about the process. I don't like having my picture taken and I am not very photogenic. It helped that City Hall was full of other photographers taking pictures of brides, grooms, and other people like me, so I didn't really stand out. I had a problem and ended up being pretty late to our meeting, but Patrick was very nice about it. I was sweating like crazy in my suit, but he did a good job of putting me at ease and letting me rest and cool down for a little bit white while he staked out spots to take the photo. He talked with me casually about what I was looking for in the photo, but we also made small talk about our lives and work, so that soon I felt very comfortable with him. As a result, I looked very natural in the photo. Patrick took a lot of shots, and several of them were quite good. I needed the work done on very short notice, including a print. I made the bid on a Sunday, we did the photo shoot on Monday, and I had the print by Tuesday morning. I love the photo, and my family and friends do too. Everyone agreed that not just my appearance, but also my personality comes through in the photo. I will definitely call Patrick again if I need another photo taken in the future!Mar 17, 2014Verified

Patrick really went the extra mile to make sure I got the photos I wanted. He did a great job and I would highly recommend his services.Aug 5, 2017Verified
I couldn't be more pleased with Patrick's photography service and the final delivered images. He visited our office a week prior in order to check out the space, and arrived early on photoshoot day to allow ample time for setup. He was pleasant and professional with each staff member, putting them at ease in front of the camera, and was even able to accommodate some last minute schedule changes. I appreciated how communicative and thorough he was with his process. We're already trying to book him for our next round of headshots for new team members. Thanks for all your work, Patrick!Oct 3, 2016Verified

- 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.
