i'VE GOT A GREAT REP - Patrice Bockos
I live in the beautiful city of Portland, Maine. It is the perfect place for shooting urban scenes using the gorgeous parks and architecture as backdrops or in five minutes be at the ocean or surrounded by woods and nature. Although I often shoot in New York and I am happy to travel anywhere.
I studied fine arts at Boston University School of Fine Arts and photography and film making at The School for the Museum of Fine Arts / Tufts University. I started as a street photographer and gradually became a lifestyle photographer
