Patrick Ketchum

It’s a privilege to work doing what we love - photography.

PATRICK has specialized in real estate photography since 2010. From 2010 to 2017 he has photographed over 2,000 properties worth more than $600,000,000 (according to Zillow, on the day of the shoot - worth more in todays money). He has received “too many to count” compliments (loving every single one of them) from Realtors and Owners. The overwhelming majority of his new clients are from referrals - and I think that speaks for itself.

Patrick began his love with the camera in the early 1970’s when he would rush the concert stage to click images of Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Black Sabbath, Yes, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and so many other rock legends.

In the 1980’s and throughout the 1990’s Patrick owned a few computer software game businesses including: DataSoft (later sold to the Gillette Company), where we launched the home computer versions of Pac Man, Pole Position, Dig Dug, Zaxxon, Bruce Lee, Dallas, and more; Sullivan Bluth Interactive Media where we launched the home computer versions of Dragon’s Lair and Space Ace; and Cyberdreams where we launched H.R. Giger’s Dark Seed I & II, Harlan Ellison’s I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, Syd Mead’s CyberRace, and others.

After he sold his 50% interest in CyberDreams to his partner in 1996, Patrick wanted to do something more creative and without employees (lol)... it was time to get back to photography !! So he moved to London, England and was mentored by Francis Looney, a very well known and successful photographer of 50 years. Working with Francis those two years was invaluable photography experience... and is where Patrick gained an understanding of composition, posing, and painting with light.

In 1999 he returned to the US and settled in the Palm Springs, CA area. Here he continued his photographic efforts with glamour and fashion photography. In addition Patrick worked with various resorts and two local Palm Springs publications, The Bottom Line and Pulp, where he shot over 50 covers.

With the exception of the two years Patrick lived in London, he has always lived in Southern California. Patrick was born in the Hillcrest area of San Diego in 1954, moved to Los Angeles at the age of 13, to London in 1997 and then to Palm Springs in 1999. Patrick has two grown-up kids and four beautiful grandchildren.
