Who I am…

Pat Collin,  photographer.

Capturing your moments for about 35 years, with a few down periods throughout the years…

Since the arrival of digital photography, I’ve been taking over 10 000 shots yearly. Always with the same passion for photography, with no pretention whatsoever.

Being mostly a sports photographer, I have done images for the Canadian Gymnastics Association (National selection of 1998 for the Commonwealth Games), covered many motorized sports events; Champ Car series (2002 in Mid-Ohio, 2006 in Montréal and 2007 in Mont-Tremblant) as well as the Grand Prix of Trois-Rivières, yearly, since 2011. The CSBK Superbike series was just added to this list.

My images have been published on Internet sites, as well as a publication in the “Dernière Heure” magazine (October 2010). I also cover the annual congress of the “Association des Centres d’urgence du Québec” (ACUQ) since 3 years.

For the last few yars, I’ve also been making promotionnal posters for differnet music bands and also race drivers (to be seen under the “Montages and promotionnal posters” tab).
