My passion for photography started when I was in middle school working in my uncle photography studio in Detroit. I will always take the opportunity to see how my uncle was working with his clients. In college, I bought myself a point-and-shoot camera and started trying to figure things out on my own. I had the opportunity to talk with a number of professional photographers and really learn from them how to take good photos. After college, I purchased a dlsr, signed up for online classes to learn more about my craft. I got myself to a number of photography workshops at a local store and even had the opportunity to attend a multi-day photography conference held in my area. During my career I have shot fashion shows, done work for advertising agencies, has had work printed in a variety of magazines and have worked with a variety of different clients.
My name is Patrick Crosby and I’m a Metro Detroit portrait and lifestyle photographer. I grew up and lived in the Buffalo, NY area for nearly all of my life and have recently moved here to the Metro Detroit Area in January 2020! I gained my appreciation for the arts at the age of 7 through drawing cartoons. Through the years, my role and talent as an artist grew and changed forms. I dabbled in graffiti, poetry, graphic design, music, film and video, and even tried painting for a brief amount of time! Photography was an unexpected surprise. I can say that being a film major in college trained my eye but what drives my eye is poetry. Visual poetry. My goal is to capture and present the true essence of people, objects, and moments through photography. To freeze precious moments and spirits in time is not only tremendously fun but an honor and reward. I want people to feel my work, not just see it. I hope that when people view my work they experience what I sought to capture. I want them to lose themselves in the stories I tell.
Photography for me has been my way to write stories with my camera. I don't overly complicate my shooting style. I keep it genuine to the mood which is being created.

— Diana Bradley
Brian makes everyone feel comfortable with his fun, laid back, easy going ways. Taking professional pictures is normally an activity that my children dread but he made the experience one they look forward to. I wouldn’t have hired anyone else to also take pictures at their bar mitzvahs. They came out natural and beautiful. Brian is above the rest by far. Highly recommend!

Photographer was fabulous!
Both creative and professional. Gave us exactly what we were looking for for our shoot and some extra ideas that went above and beyond.
His work was taking pictures of me for my professional platforms. He was very professional and amiable. Because of him, I was able to get many interviews and landed my dream job. He’s an amazing photographer and overall great person.
Julia is a wonderfully amazing person and photographer. Her ability to capture not just the moment, but the emotion in her photos is speechless. When we worked together, I went in with simple ideas, and she took those and made phenomenal images that I still use to this day. From simple concepts to being able to make the client feel completely comfortable, I have recommended Julia numerous times to friends. Kyle Irving
