Wednesday Inspiration – Patrick Hoelck Photography

This week’s gallery spotlight is on Patrick Hoelck photography. I came across Patrick’s portfolio about a year ago and just found it again today. I love this kind of stuff! His work is dark, it’s edgy, and it has a ton of feeling in it. It almost has the look of some photographers like Joey Lawrence and Dave Hill but it’s also very different. For starters, I don’t think he’s doing the same type of post-processing they are (notice I said “type of post-processing” – there’s still definitely work being done but it’s very different from what I can see). Plus, it’s great to see some one’s style injected into so many different types of work and clients. So make sure you check this one out. It’s an easy site to navigate too (I just love those horizontal scroll navigation schemes for some reason).
