Born out of his boyhood love of the Cleveland Browns and Indians, sports have been one of Pat’s lifelong passions. Since he moved to the Bay Area in the 70’s, Pat Johnson Photography has captured some of the area’s most iconic personalities, including Barry Bonds, Willie McCovey, Buster Posey, Joe Montana and Run TMC. Pat’s relationship with the San Francisco Giants has spanned over 40 years, and his work has been featured nationally as the cover of the 1992 Oakland A’s vs Toronto Blue Jays ALCS program. He also served as the official team photographer of the Golden State Warriors from 1984-2001, covering one of the most exciting eras in team history.
“Shooting events can be quite challenging. There is a constant ebb and flow. Having the experience to know when things are about to happen and being where the best angles are is critical. Whether it’s the CEO’s spontaneous speech, the group shots, the interaction between the guests and the principals, covering the event from beginning to end. But most importantly telling the story for later visual needs of the client. It is a lot of fun!”
