he became the manager of a commercial photography studio. Because of
his great expertise in Photoshop and Digital Imaging he also worked
for a printing company. Patrick was transferred to New York City where
he worked and learned from some of the best jewelry photographers. He

photography and imaging. He also has a deep knowledge of chemical process
both negative and positive.

"I developed an
interest in photography and began playing with the camera at the early
age of 10. By age 12, I had set up my first darkroom from a kit bought
at a flea market. Through PHOTO Magazine, I discovered Cheico Leidman,
Salvador Dali, Peter Turner and many more. I had become an auto mechanic
when my dad's opinion was to "Get a hair-cut and a real job". After
5 years of being up to my elbows in grease, I decided to pursue photography
and enrolled in a commercial photo program in 1991 and I haven't stopped
I hope I can count you
