Meet Patricia 

I love showing people how to use their camera and seeing everyday moments become pictures of a lifetime. To capture a subject in a different and creative way and to reveal unique hidden qualities through a photograph makes everyday subjects much more interesting and compelling. 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!

Join me, Patricia Bean, professional/published photographer and licensed tour guide for a fun and unique outing.

  •   Patricia is a super awesome lady. She was very nice and knowledgeable about photography.

    thumb Jeremy
  •   Patty was fabulous. She took time to find out what kinds of things I like to photograph, and those were the areas she took me too. She had great tips and hints to make my photos better. I also liked that after I took a photo, she would look at it with me and explain what she saw. And then she helped me to take it again to make it even better. I loved the instant feedback / assistance. This was a great activity and I would do it again if we ever get back there!

    thumb Christine
  •   Patricia was wonderful. She explained how to pay attention to framing and perspective while taking photos. This was for my bachelorette weekend and she had the idea to meet up with Henri, the pirate. We got some great pictures with my group of girls, and we had a lot of fun with Patricia and Henri. She showed us some hidden spots in St. Augustine that not many locals even know about. Thank you! We had a great time, learned more about photography and got some wonderful pictures out of it.

    thumb Judith
  •   This tour was very informative and I can already see a difference in the pictures that I take. I did the tour on the last day of my vacation. I wish I’d done it on the first day because I would have gotten much better pictures to capture memories from this trip.

    thumb Brandi
  •   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.

    thumb Trudy
  •   Highly recommend this experience! We learned so many photographic concepts, photography tips and tricks, and discovered a new part of the city we had never explored. Patricia is an amazing teacher and now, a new friend!

    thumb Angela
  •   Very informative. While it was a great learning experience, it was also fun. We very much enjoyed this experience with Patricia. Looking forward to all the memories we will capture through a lens

    thumb Serena
  •   The photography walkabout with Patricia was great. Ours was a morning tour with generally harsh light that can occasionally make for uninteresting pictures. Patricia, though had a number of great suggestions on how to use shadows to make interesting pictures of the historic buildings in St Augustine. The background information on the city's history put our tour in great perspective.

    thumb Daniel
  •   We booked this adventure as part of our bachelorette weekend. We wanted something fun and non traditional. We have all been to St. Augustine a million times, but this trip felt like we were experiencing it for the first time. We had such a wonderful experience touring the streets and back roads. We explored a secret garden, and watched a super cool street band. Our host even rallied up a pirate, Henri, who was such a character! He had us dying in laughter and made for some really awesome photos and some unforgettable memories. He truly was a hoot and a great addition to our party. I highly recommend this experience!

    thumb Tambra
  •   Patricia took us to places in St. Augustine that I hadn’t seen before. Her information on the structural architecture and history was interesting and her points on photography were simple, yet informative. She showed how to look at lines, colors, and photography as art.
