She travels regularly around the Greek Island and mainland Greece, producing work aimed at travel and photo magazines and journals, as well as stock photography. Patricia can provide both pictures and words which capture the essence of a location.

Recent trips include Rhodes for the Epiphany festival and Crete for the Carnival, Lent and Easter festival.

She also has extensive coverage of olive oil, from the blossom stage, harvesting, pests, and oil production.

At all locations local food and ethnic cultures are included to complete the story of the diverse lifestyles of individual islands, especialy the lesser know festivals that take place a short distance away from the tourist areas.

Patricia is travelling to Thessaloníki, the Sporodese Islands, the Cyclades Islands and the Dodecanese Islands this summer as well as continuing her in depth coverage of Crete. New images of the Sheep Blessing at Psiloritis, Lassithi village bread festival, the honey festival and various church and alcohol festivals are planed for 2010.
