Patrick Melon is a native and proud resident of New Orleans' 7th Ward.

After graduating from Louisiana State University in 2014 with a BFA in Studio Art concentrating in photography I dedicated myself full time to my craft and determining the limits of my creative output.

Focusing on portraiture, my work is constituted mainly of expressions and explorations of the people around me throughout the city I live in and the places I visit.

I delight in the ability to capture flickering moments on camera that are priceless mementos of my subjects and their emotions. Were I to confine my style to just one genre it would be street photography. The skills I have in creating images out in the open field give me an upper hand in other areas of work including weddings and event photography.
