Hi, I’m Pat Meier.
In 1980 my parents did something, a little later I was born – somewhere, in the relative safety of Switzerland. In my early days I was quite busy growing up, doing things, then doing more serious things and somehow ending up in London. On my journey I spent exciting days in school and in the corporate world. At the time I often hung out with my best friend who’s dad infected me with the photography bug. Years later I bought my first ‘big’ camera, a Nikon D90. What started as an exciting hobby soon became my passion. A passion which I combine with all parts of my life – especially also my beautiful family!
I love the adventure; both extremes – remote wilderness and urban madness. I love the scorching heat, the I-can’t-feel-my-toes-anymore cold on high altitude expeditions, raging storms or simply having to save my camera gear in extremis from the incoming tide on the Icelandic shores. Being Swiss means that being out in the wild is second nature to me. Hiking for hours with a rucksack full of essential outdoor gear and heavy photography equipment, sleeping out in sub-zero conditions, coping with the unpredictability of the elements or trying to find that perfect composition even when the light is flat. Capturing the emotions, expressions and most unique moments at events. Creating memories that last a lifetime. Helping to put products in that perfect light to boost sales. All of that is my one big passion!
So far in my photography career I have been hired to cover a wide variety from corporate, comedy and sports events over to nightlife and architectural assignments to just name a few. In 2014 I was approached by Getty Images where I since have been selling editorial and commercial images to customers around the globe.
