About Pat Paul Photography

2Pat8(2013)4x4

Pat Paul Photography has been operating in the Cranford, NJ area for the past ten years, specializing in portrait and event photography. Model portfolios and headshots for the business and entertainment industries are my favorite job requests.

While helping my daughter photograph her artwork for her college applications, I became aware of the demands placed on seniors who are attempting to show their best work to the colleges of their choice. Often a digital submission becomes the only option when time and distance are issues. The representation of the artwork can make the portfolio shine or suffer. My services can help make that portfolio shine.
