My name is Pat O’Brien and I am a wedding photographer in Massachusetts. I enjoy photographing all kinds of subjects – from landscapes to people. It’s what allows me to be creative.
I first picked up a camera when I was young, and enjoyed taking “pointless” photos. It wasn’t until I got my first digital camera that I really enjoyed photographing everything. Mostly because the digital images were “free”, and I saved a lot of money not having to develop film. When I was in the Army National Guard as Military Police, my unit commander wanted to get unit information out into the public. He knew I had an interest in photography and the decision was made to send me to an Army Public Relations class. The class focused on military photojournalism. I walked away feeling more confident about being able to tell a story with my images. It was this class that really was the beginning of my interest to learn more, and do more with photography.
