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!
  •   If you are thinking about doing this tour DO IT. We had so much fun walking around and learning with Patricia. She is SO knowledgeable and was a wonderful guide to taking the best pictures I ever have in my life.

  •   This was such a great tour! Patricia was very knowledgeable of St Augustine history and photography. I got some great shots and learned a lot!

    thumb Lisa
  •   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
  •   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!

  •   Coming into this-we expected the host to have a professional camera to use and speak to during the walk. The description stated to come prepared to learn some photography techniques along with the visiting unique parts of St. Augustine (the hidden gems). We were very interested in learning about St. Augustine and taking some beautiful pictures of our family with a professional camera - but didn’t we didn’t get that from this experience. Quite honestly, we felt this experience was over priced.

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

    thumb Jeremy
  •   Informative both for photography and, unexpectedly, St Augustine history. I now look at lines, lights, and subjects differently. Who knew my phone had f-stops?! Patricia did! She was able to help everyone on a personal level as we all had different cameras.

    thumb Patty
  •   Patricia frames this experience as expertly as her photo images. She tailors the class to each person’s ability and equipment (great with iPhone as well as professional gear). She made our 17-year-old daughter feel special by showing interest in her and taking time to tell her how this experience would help her career interest (interior design). Patricia is reputable in photography and researched in her St Augustine history, but delivers it all humbly and with sweetness, wanting to stay connected as friends and photography advisor long after your two hours are done.

    thumb Vernon
  •   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
  •   Tour of a beautiful city with history and picture taking skills included - we learned about composition in photos and how to take better pictures
