I am Patrick Ellis, a do-it-all photographer currently based out of Vancouver, BC. While originally from southern Ontario, I moved to British Columbia at the age of 20 to pursue a career in photography.|
I’m not sure if it was the mountains, forests, ocean, abundant wildlife and aquatic creatures, or just the welcoming aura of this province, but something grabbed my attention and I haven’t been able to let go ever since. I’m sure this is why nature and landscapes have become my preferred subjects of photography. But that doesn’t mean I classify myself as strictly a nature photographer either. Every aspect of my life has the potential to become a work of art. In other words, work and play go hand in hand.
I love meeting new people, so I’m happy to do portraits. Everyone loves music, and I enjoy documenting live shows. While I’m on the street or in nature, something will catch my eye, and my camera is quick to follow. The situation doesn’t matter to me as long as my eye is behind the viewfinder, where I can let my creativity run wild. Every day is a new experience, and every experience is something to learn from. Whether these experiences are specifically with photography, or maybe just life itself, they always allow me to grow as an artist. Every situation, good or bad, allows stronger emotion to be conveyed in my work as time carries on.
