Nice to meet you! My name is Stephanie Patterson, and I’m a creative professional with nine years combined experience across the photography, writing, and social media industries.
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 and provide clients with a variety of services in the travel industry.
I’m available worldwide for professional travel, food, and portrait photography work. I graduated from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree in photography.
My photography business specializes in travel and food photography, in addition to intimate local and destination weddings, proposals, and engagements.
Destination photography services include, but aren’t limited to:
• Illustrative photography for freelance writing assignments
• Social media and branding
• Articles (print and digital)
• 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.
I offer a variety of freelance writing services, including:
• Destination focused content
• Digital and print articles
• Press releases and kits
• Website copywriting
• Blog posts
• Social media content
I am able to supply my own original photographs, if requested. Please contact me for current rates.
“Stephanie is a true professional with stellar writing and photography skills in equal measure. She sticks to her deadline, communicates well throughout the project and consistently delivers more than I expected. I simply cannot recommend her highly enough.”
