About Me

A self portrait for Patrick Engman's "about me" page

So, what about Patrick Engman??

Hello! I’m Patrick (my friends call me Patty) and photography allows me to find purpose in the present and by looking at my own work over time, I began to realize certain states of mind associated with how I composed an image. This process of self-actualization has lead me down a path of living with intention, humility, sensitivity, and making space for mental health, especially now that I have been recently diagnosed with ADHD and OCD. I believe my photographic approach will be a breath of fresh air because the human condition has many beautiful shades and not one artistic approach can be universally applied. One thing for sure is, we are all still figuring out this thing called life and we might as well have photographic proof that we tried to live it the way we wanted. The future may depend on these photos to grow, just like I did.

I began my photographic journey in late 2007 after being scouted off Flickr. I worked as a commercial and wedding photographer in Panama City, Florida and I eventually became a studio owner for a short period of time. Around 2013, I began freelancing in Chicago, and in 2020, I decided to venture off to Lincoln, Nebraska with my chosen family where I continue instilling my values of equality, representation and the pursuance of happiness. My photography studio is currently located in the Parrish Building in downtown Lincoln.

My photographic specialties consists of environmental portraits, headshots, events and select commercial work. You may notice that my photos have a certain depth and tonality to them. This is because of my usage of multi-mediums ranging from digital to medium format film. The pursuance of technical quality is no stranger to me and I thrive at delivering photographs that will stand the test of time. With that said, I have open availability and I cannot wait to take your photo! If you want to learn more about me and my work, check out my portfolio, Instagram, twitter or pricing for more info.

Sincerely,

Patrick Engman
