Hi, I’m Patrick, I am a lifestyle and portrait photographer who creates playful, moving, and elegant images for aspirational brands, small businesses, big businesses, and artists.
I was an artsy (weird) kid, and from a young age I knew I wanted to pursue a career as an artist. For a while I thought I was going to be a painter but as it turns out I'm flat out terrible at painting. Fortunately for me I was given a camera as a teenager and fell in love with taking pictures.
I studied photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Afterwards I moved to Atlanta where I live with my amazing wife and my chatterbox of a son.
In our free time we love to travel, there’s nothing like getting out of your comfort zone and visiting an unfamiliar place to recharge your creative battery and expand your horizons. Between us we’ve visited almost every continent, but no matter how often I point out how cute penguins are my wife remains unimpressed with Antartica and considers it “not a vacation destination” and “possible grounds for divorce.”
In addition to assignment work I enjoy pursuing personal projects and creating what I’ve been told is “Fine Art”. My fancy art-photography is represented by Kai Lin Art here in Atlanta. You can check out my art at www.patrickheagneystudio.com or by clicking the "Fine Art" link in the navigation.
When I’m not doing any of the above you can usually find me listening to my son explain something he saw on YouTube to me, playing banjo, or accumulating cats (most of whom don't really seem to care for the banjo music).
