After moving to Alaska in 1981 from Wisconsin, Patrick has traveled extensively throughout the state photographing and observing the delicate balance of nature in the Arctic and sub-Arctic environments. His genuine love and enthusiasm for the natural world combined with many years of traveling Alaska’s Interior, Arctic and coastal regions have given him a strong knowledge of the varied aspects of photographing in Alaska’s ever-changing wilderness surroundings.
Patrick lives in Fairbanks, Alaska where he works as a professional freelance photographer. His work has appeared in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, USA Today, Backpacker, Natural History Magazine, National Geographic Adventurer, National Wildlife Magazine, Outside, National Parks Magazine, Alaska Magazine, Audubon and Sierra Club Calendars and many other books and publications. He was included in the World’s Top Landscape Photographers published in 2003, and self publishes two Alaska Calendars.
