Staying in Focus

chris crisman interview patrick onofre podcast


“The driving force of my career is making work where I’m the art director, I’m the stylist, I’m the photographer – where it’s totally independent and I’m controlling as many aspects as possible. [Commercial photography] is a very cooperative effort to meet in the middle… but when I do my own work, there are no rules. I just make the pictures that I’m passionate about, the pictures that I stay up at night, trying to conceive.”


A few weeks ago we hopped on Skype for an hour or so and spoke with Washington DC based photographer, blogger, and podcast-er Patrick Onofre. Patrick has been producing the Staying in Focus Podcast since 2012 and we are honored to be featured in his most recent episode. Over the course of the show, Chris and Patrick chat about everything from the Philadelphia restaurant scene to his tastes in photography, to what really drives Chris to make photos. It’s not often that we have the time to sit down and talk about photography, make sure to give it a listen!

A big thanks to Patrick – make sure to check out the rest of the Staying in Focus podcast (which you can subscribe to on iTunes), as well as checking him out @OnofreShoots. Any questions, thoughts? Drop us a line in the comments and let us know.
