He is also a contributor to The Kennedy Center Honors and The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Patrick’s oversize photographs of Blondie, George Thorogood, U2, Billy Idol and others grace the walls of the recently renovated El Mocambo Club in Toronto where they were originally photographed. Recognition for his work includes numerous awards for photography including The International Photography Awards, Hasselblad Masters, The Art Director’s Club of Canada and American Photography. Patrick became an adjunct faculty member of the International Center of Photography in New York City since 2003. As an author, lecturer and public speaker he has presented digital programs like, ‘An Evening of Rock and Roll’, that showcases his photography while sharing and evaluating the music’s colorful past. These digital presentations are photo histories of rock and roll from 1976 -1992 through Harbron’s eye. ‘Icons and Influence- A Rock and Roll Photographic History’ was presented as the keynote address at Notre Dame College in Cleveland, Ohio. Patrick’s photography for television programs such as Only Murders In The Building, Billions, VEEP, Sex Drugs and Rock and Roll, The Jimmy Kimmel Show, Boardwalk Empire, Vinyl, Daredevil, The Good Fight and Mindhunter is commissioned by network clients that include Home Box Office, Netflix, ABC Television, Sony, Hulu, FX, Warner Brothers and CBS.
