Patrick was so easy to work with, a truly lovely man who put me at ease and made the whole process of having my photos taken (which I normally don't enjoy) a pleasure. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him - the photos came out great!Jul 20, 2017VerifiedPatrick S.'s reply
Thank you!! Much appreciated!
Patrick is amazing. We met up and he also got roped in as our city guide! :) He was really friendly and gave us some information and tips about travelling around NYC and in the States. As we ain't from the States, Patrick also took time to keep up updated about our meet-ups prior to our arrival in the States. During the photoshoot, he warmed up to us pretty quickly and the shoot went well. I love his black and whites and have received many compliments from my friends! Great meeting u, Patrick!

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Always. There is always something to learn, particularly in lighting.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?A great photo depends on the relationship between the photographer and the subject, Âeven if that subject is an inanimate object. The best way for someone to get a good portrait is to have a good relationship with the photographer. When you're shopping for photographers, your feelings about the photos will tell you a lot about the photographer. Skill is important, but trust and comfort is more important. Does the person in the photo look relaxed? Do the photos look too technical or overly photoshopped? Find out how the photographer likes to work. Once you decide on a few that you like, Ânarrow it down to three of your favorites before you ask for quotes. Give lots of detail about what you're looking for to get the best price. How long will the shoot be? Describe what you want as an end result. All photographers should be able to offer you digital proofs and hi-res originals. Usually there's not much you can do with the originals unless you know how to use the programs. They are just good to have in case you need to do something down the road. So, a hi-res jpeg should be more than enough for even large prints.
