I am Patrick Lentz…a photographer and artist located in Boston, MA. After studying fine art and illustration at the Art Institute in Boston, I began working for a high-end wedding photographer in the Beacon Hill area where I managed his studio for 10 years. At that point my childhood passion for photography matured. In 2003, I opened up my own photography studio in the Puffers Building in Boston where I began to photograph portraits of all sorts for several years.
My current studio is located on Washington Street in the South End of Boston. I photograph in a wide variety of genres including portraiture, street photography, fine art photography, and specialize in artistic nudes. I am also the league photographer for both the Beantown Softball League and Boston's FLAG Flag Football league.
My clients tell me I'm very easy going and comfortable to work with. My studio shoots take place in a very relaxed atmosphere where the subject and I just chat through the entire shoot while I'm taking pictures and instructing them how to pose. This allows the subject to feel less self-conscious and the results are more natural looking shots.
I love what I do. It allows me to get to know and creatively collaborate with a wide variety of people, in which some have become close friends. I love and appreciate all of my friends and models who are always willing to volunteer their free time to work with me on many of my special projects.
If you would like to see more of my photographs that are not on this website, I have an extremely large collection of my personal and professional work posted on my flickr account which has over 7 million views. I am also a administrator and project manager of one of flickr's most esteemed photography groups UTATA.
I have several self-published photography books here.
If you have an interest in setting up a photo shoot, just call or email me with any questions you may have.
News: I recently self-published my new coffee table book Our Lady of Lawns: the virgin known as Mary. In the summer and fall of 2012, I spent 5 months walking around different cities on the North Shore of Boston, as well as parts of Boston itself, hunting down and photographing lawn statues of the Virgin Mary. The book contains a large collection of shrines created by home owners.
