Welcome to Patti Johnston Photography!
For as long as I can remember I have loved photography. Back to before high school, I was the one with the camera, always taking photos. Even today, not a day goes by that I am not shooting something. It could be a bird on my back patio or my doggie, Daisy or setting up a photo shoot with flowers. I also enjoy photojournalism and recently was 1 of 6 finalists in CNN's Annual iReport Awards in the category In Depth Storytelling Category (out of a field of 11,000 reports!). I truly enjoy capturing moments in time of people. These moments create an emotion. Usually joy, sometimes sorrow or sadness. If you feel something when looking at my photos then I have achieved my goal.
My style is sometimes posed shots to capture your best you….. a tilt of the head, placement of your hand, making sure your clothing is flowing just right…. I also capture unposed "lifestyle" type shots of you by yourself or with your loved ones. In both I am trying to capture that special look, a twinkle in your eye, that cute smirk….you get the idea! My style is a bit eclectic from bold, robust colors to soft, dreamy, romantic colors.
On this website, you will find portfolios of people to landscapes to flowers to letters or other things that have caught my eye. I invite you to browse around….do a bit of window shopping. You may find just the perfect photo for your home, office, business or retail store.
Want to know more? I am the proud Mom of Eric and Shelly. I love dogs, daisies, long walks with my camera, family and friend time and my favorite Pinot Noir. I would also love the honor of capturing photos for you or your family. Please contact me, if you have a question or need more information.
