Hi! My name is Patrick Patton and I am a fashion photographer based on the Central Coast of California. If you are interested in learning how to get started with model photography, you’ve come to the right place! I work with Los Angeles models and model agencies, but I started off in a small town far from L.A., and I’m here to show you how you can get started no matter where you live!
In this course we will cover:
1. Testing with amateur models
2. Shooting on location
3. Shooting in studio
4. Testing with model agencies
5. Building a creative team
6. Submitting to Magazines
Where can I see your photography portfolio?

How long have you been a photographer.
I have had a love for taking photos for as long as I can remember. When I was little, my mom used to take my brother and I to the drug store to buy disposable Kodak cameras and I learned how to be very thoughtful about each shot, and I developed a sense of composition at an early age. I never thought I would do this for a living, but when I hurt my knee during Fire Academy in 2014, I started taking photos for a few local companies while waiting for my knee to heal, and my business started to grow. That’s how I accidentally became a full time photographer in 2014 and I’ve never looked back!
Has your work been published anywhere?
My photos have been on the covers and in the pages of over 25 different publications. You can find my work in Elegant Magazine, New Face Magazine, Seraphina Magazine, Creators Magazine, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, Coyote + Oak Magazine, Pinup Alternative Magazine, and more.
