Work With Me

Nice to meet you! My name is Stephanie Patterson, and I’m a creative professional with nine years combined experience as a photographer, writer, and marketer.

Creative passion is what drives me, and the greatest satisfaction comes from utilizing that creativity to help others thrive. I work with local publications, tourism boards, small business owners, and individuals, providing a variety of services in the travel and food industries.



I graduated from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree in photography and have been passionately pursuing it ever since. My photography business specializes in travel, food, and drink photography.

Professional photography services include, but aren’t limited to:

• Illustrative photography for freelance writing assignments (print and digital)
• Destination photography
• Food and drink photography for restaurants and brands
• Social media and branding
• Photo Essays
• Photography for images used online (web, blog content)

I’m available for work with tourism boards, destination-specific companies and publications, restaurants, and local businesses for both digital and print media.

My photography portfolio can be found online here.
