GIFT #2 : Justin Patterson Photography

Hey there.

Let me introduce you to Justin Patterson.


You’ll thank me.

Justin and I are both Georgia boys, but we didn’t meet until we both did the first national tour of Monty Python’s Spamalot. He wasn’t behind the camera, he was with me on stage, a true triple-threat.

I may be talking today about his amazing gifts as a photographer, but—let me tell you—that boy can sing! 

But his photography is why I want you to meet him.

I’ve got a couple of different photographers I like to use (more on another great team later) but I’m really in love with what I get out of a session with Justin.

For me he’s my go-to for a more editorial look and tons of great images I can use on my site and in social media. 

The t-shirt series that’s I’ve been putting out all year is based on one of his images of me.

The artwork that I’m using on my thank-you cards and other physical print materials is also based on JP’s work.

He just inspires me to be creative.

And isn’t that exactly the kind of artist you want to be working with?

Enough from me. Let me let Justin speak for himself:

Justin Patterson, Self Portrait

“I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA and have lived in NYC since 1999. I have a degree from the University of Cincinnati. I am also an actor and have been fortunate to have performed in 7 Broadway shows so far in that career. It's this work that has also given me a great understanding of the business and working with people, thus fueling my photography career. 

Ever since I was young, I have had a fascination with cameras and photography. I can't remember not having some sort of camera in my life.  Capturing life through the lens is a lifelong passion of mine!

My wife and I have 2 beautiful children that keep us going everyday. They are all the true inspiration for everything I do in my life!!”

Tony’s work on my website and his insight on the role images play in my branding has been invaluable. Not only that, but through the end of Cyber Monday, November 26, 2018, he’s contributing 25% of his sales to one of our community’s finest organizations: Broadway Care/Equity Fights AIDS.

The only thing better that sharing these gift ideas is seeing my friends and clients working. On stage, in rehearsal, in auditions, in the studio.

I love this work and would love to share it with you.
