After spending many years as an assistant director on major feature films Patrick moved into directing commercials in the UK. A number of years based in France led to work with most of the major European agencies. Shooting in over 50 different countries around the world including the USA, Australia, South America and Japan has led to an extensive knowledge of the film making process. This, combined with his years of experience shooting stills has led to a continuing crossover between photography and film work. Patrick is now based in the UK.
