"I first knew Patric 40 years ago. He captured images back then. Now he creates them, with some of the best vision I have ever seen. His portraits are just sublime.
Patric is not emulating the greats of photography - he IS one of the greats of photography."

"Patric Shaw is the first photographer that I've ever loved.
I love him as a photographer because his photos are not simply technical and esthetically perfect but because when I see them I can clearly imagine the atmosphere in which the photos have been taken, they tell their stories.
I am addicted to his stream. Everytime I see his album I lose myself into his photos watching closely every single, perfect detail.

"For me, it doesn't get any better than what you do. This may sound like some kiss ass living eulogy but its borne from a deep respect. You make flickr an inspirational place. You ground me when I dare think I'm getting somewhere.....and you encourage me when perhaps I don't think I am.
That said, its always about the image and you engage your viewer with stunning simplicity. Beauty and intelligence are powerful allies and they are deep rooted attributes of everything you do."

"I would kill to get your morning coffee, for free. Patric's portraits convey a simplicity that is beyond comprehension, yet when you look, when you really look, there is no other moment in time that exists. His photography brings a stillness where time stops, where there is nothing that seperates you from the subject. I one day aspire to have such a power in my work. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

"Patric is one of my favorite fotographers her portraits are beautiful because they are done in his unique way, I think everyone of the expreses something of the person. His other photographs are exceptional as well.I wish him the best and what to thanks him for his inspiration. Estefania De Ros"

Just wanted to drop a note telling you of your inspiration for me and my work. I love your close up portrait work, especially the fantastic tonal range you are able to capture on the skin. Aurelie's images in particular are stunning to me. I appreciate an artist/photographer pushing towards the reality of skin and texture instead of always working on obliterating it. I understand the nature of your commercial work and your clients' desire to have 'beauty' preeminent, and that makes your personal work all the more fantastic and your ability to grab the personal elements of your models no matter the setting even more courageous.
