Meet Patricia 

I love showing people how to use their camera and to see 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. A photograph is like a story; it's learning how to narrow the story down to one or two sentences that tell it best. 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, 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.

About The Tours

  •   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.

  •   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!
