Hi there, Ho there, Your Photographer Patrik is here and now!
I’m a studio & on site photographer based out of Vancouver, BC Canada. EH lol.
I’m interested in exploring the female form with elegance, and emotional movement. I create and emphasize the best visual sense of the end product that’s required by both the brand and the model. I’m always looking into creating a unique composition that’s artistic and tasteful, related to an excellent end result.
Sometimes I’ll take on some portrait work, or a wedding shoot where my studio setup would come to your private venue, and other times my team are actively looking to create the most unique commercial work for our local and international clients.
Before becoming a photographer I was fashion model during my college years, and later a recruiter for the Arts & Entertainment industry related to music videos, and commercial parties. I then evolved to choreographing the most epic industry after parties for the top high fashion brands, and to the top 40 musicians in Toronto (pronounced as Torono). These after parties took place in Toronto, Chicago, New York and Paris. One of the most important skills I learned during those years was how to direct and work with a variety of different people. I now apply that experience to my photography, directing my models, my mua`s, and my stylists. While attempting to capture a spontaneous and genuine emotion on camera and video.
I work with lean toned models for my commercial projects and for the portraits and weddings; it’s a variety of people in all shapes and sizes. I enjoy creating editorial style images and beauty/glamour photographs that are consistent with my personal artistic direction.
I have been on MM since 2010 and in the industry of fashion & entertainment photography since 1988.
Meanwhile I wanna thank the many talented models and photographers on here that I've networked with and added to my lists. Truly an amazing assortment of great photographer and models that bring out some excellent work to the true art form related to their genres.
If you're a Canadian model and are looking to work in the USA or get unionized, my tear sheet projects count for 1:1 credit and sometimes 3:1 credits.
ALL MY PHOTO SHOOTS REQUIRE:
Fit & toned body
Humble to take direction
On time for all appointments
Prompt to communicate
Truthful when understanding or not understanding the project
AND PLEASE no drama queens
***** IF YOU SEND A FRIEND REQUEST, please send me a personal message, or a tag or a picture comment, or add me to your LIST It helps me to know where you arrived on my pages. Friends write a little note like a tag or comment> Seems there are a lot of people who don't read this! but its cool. If I send you a friend request its mainly because I have plans to work with you or I have referred your profile to a casting director and when I tag your portfolio, its because I am delighted in your awesomous artistic work.
I don't need a retoucher at this time. Don't ask.
Girlfriend, let's keep it professional & let's keep it fly
Until then you're only as refreshing as you want to Flaunt it while you got it ladies!
I may accept a limited number of TFPs and will take priority for paid shoots.
