Pat Lee's Art & Media Fund
If you enjoy my work, I'd love your help and support! Some of you may be surprised to know I'm not a full-time photographer. I've been steadily employed since I was 15 in video and media production, and since 1999 when I was 18 years old Ive worked for a small media company called Repetrope/USAMuscle which brought me into the bodybuilding and physique world. It was through those opportunities that enabled me to branch out into physique photography as a part-time freelancer over these past 16 years.
My full-time job with USAMuscle provided me the stability for me to pursue photography. Unfortunately as the industry changed, especially the special interest market, some good things are coming to an end— I've found myself at a crossroads in my life and career.
Now I'm looking to branch out on my own to dedicate more time and resources to expanding my own work — both in photography, but also to explore new ventures in film and moving media.
I'd absolutely love your assistance in helping me raise funds for new video and photography equipment, as well as to fund upcoming shoots and projects. This will also help me showcase new athletes and models and to create even more of the work fans will appreciate.
