We were interviewed in November, 2012 by Phoenix Vice Mayor Councilman Bill Gates in our portrait studio here in Sunnyslope, North Central Phoenix. We were filmed for a special TV segment featured on Phoenix11 in front of our Enchanted Forest set and while photographing two of our lovely fairies, Heaven and Lexi. You will see them along with some of our other images in the segment. Watch the segment below and see if there is anyone you know. This video is being featured on Phoenix11 cable TV here in Arizona. If you are interested in being notified the next time we offer this special session early next year, please sign up for our e-newsletter on our website: apatrouphotography.com.
This is a favorite shot from a session we did recently with actor Greg Bronson. This idea was the last set we did and the images really came out great. We edited in the tobacco and smoke for the pipe in Photoshop in post production. Greg often has parts in western movies that shoot in the Phoenix, AZ area.
I thought I would share a larger image of the high scoring image that helped bump me into first place in the Top Ten Photographer of the Year category at the AZPPA Convention for 2012. Having the highest scoring print case translated to the Emil Eager Photographer of the Year Award in 2012! Thanks to Jim Cigan for modeling his Civil War re-enactor's outfit for me. If you're an interesting enough character and have authentic western clothing or clothing from another era, send me an email and I will consider you for a future project.

Our music is licensed for use with this video and is called "Everyday" by Carly Comando.
