My name is Patrick Crosby and I’m a lifestyle, portrait, and event photographer. I grew up and live here in Buffalo, NY with my wife Kate and our dog Raven. We absolutely love the direction Buffalo is going but we also love and respect the history and grit it has!
I gained my appreciation for the arts at the age of 7 through drawing cartoons. Through the years, my role and talent as an artist grew and changed forms. I dabbled in graffiti, poetry, graphic design, music, film and video, and even tried painting for a brief amount of time! Photography was an unexpected surprise.
I fell into photography when Kate and I purchased a camera so that she could take photos on our various excursions and use them for various things like her scrapbook. However, she would get so engrossed in the moment and surroundings that only a couple photos were taken in a couple of hours. I for one was not letting that money go to waste! I picked up the camera and started to capture it all. After a while, my friends and family began to notice my photos and saw something in me that I had yet to see. My passion and talent for photography!
I can say that being a film major in college trained my eye but what drives my eye is poetry. Visual poetry. My goal is to capture and present the true essence of people, objects, and moments through photography. To freeze precious moments and spirits in time is not only tremendously fun but an honor and reward. I want people to feel my work, not just see it. I hope that when people view my work they experience what I sought to capture. I want them to lose themselves in the stories I tell.
In my free time, I practice Muay Thai Kickboxing, play pick up football, hike, travel, socialize with friend and family, eat all that Buffalo has to offer, play video games, and find additional time to eat more of what Buffalo has to offer.
