“Dynalite is the best lighting choice I could have made. It is reliable, powerful , lightweight and versatile. For me that’s the vital in lighting gear. I travel with 4 packs, 10 heads and tons of accessories and for twenty years I have counted on Dynalite gear to make my life easier. Whether it’s hooked up to a bank, grid or optical spot in the studio, bouncing off the walls or out in the middle of nowhere I never worry about my lighting.”
Patrick Harbron is a New York based photographer well known for his quirky off beat portraits of celebrities, business heads, scientists, comedians and everyday people. Working internationally and equally comfortable on location or in the studio, Patrick finds a twist that shows us a different and often humorous point of view of his subjects. Bringing out each subject’s personality while finding a unique look is a vital part of each shoot. Despite the size of the assignment, big or small, Patrick’s own guidelines are to keep it simple, fun and visually engaging.
Starting his career in rock and roll, Patrick photographed hundreds of groups of rock’s royalty from AC/DC to Z.Z. Top for tour books, album covers and magazines. As his style evolved he eventually found markets and subjects beyond music.
