I have been leading workshops for over 20 years helping others improve their photography through a greater understanding of camera controls, composition, and light. I am a working photographer, digital artist, International Photography Exhibit Judge, Photography Instructor, Photography Business Owner, and Licensed History Tour Guide through the city of Saint Augustine and I look forward to sharing my experience with you!

  •   Patricia first took time to teach me how to use apps to help me edit my photos. We then walked all over the streets of St. Augustine, stopping for her to show me what to look for in a picture. She helped me realize that not every scene is photographic. She also told me a lot of the history of St. Augustine. She helped me see things through my cell-phone camera that I had never visualized before. Patricia was a great teacher and friend.

  •   Patricia was a fantastic host and teacher. I learned so much about story-telling via photos, composition, lighting and proper exposure for crisp and sharp photos. And- I got to learn a little about the history that makes this city so magical. This was definitely a unique way to marry my love for St Augustine and photography. I got more than I bargained for.... can’t wait to share my experience and upload these awesome shots to (Hidden by Airbnb) . Lol
