Piece description from the artist
The Garden of the Gods is a unique sandstone city park in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Recently named the best city park in the United States by Trip Advisor, this park provides its visitors with towering sandstone spires and fins up to 400 feet tall. Rock climbing started in this park as early as the 1940s and still goes on today with routes to summits of every rock formation you see in this park. Simply a magnificent place to visit.
My focus and intent as a photographer is to transport the viewer from their place in space and time to another world. I am an adventure photographer who's goal is to capture those images that epitomize adventure. I want to instill in my viewers a sense of transformation and transportation of their mind – to take the viewer to the places and situations where the photographs reside. I want the viewer's heart rate to increase when they see an adrenaline filled photo; a sense of height and dizziness when they see a photo from a mountain top; a sense of calming and relaxation when they focus on the awe-inspiring landscapes of seldom visited positions. I strive to embody adventure in every photograph and strive to share these images with everyone.
Patrick is currently working full time as a rock climbing guide in Colorado and travels as much as he can.
