My name is Patricia Pahinag, and I am a freelance Director of Photographer, Assistant Camera, and Videographer currently based in Portland, OR. I received my Bachelor's degree in Film and a minor in Theater Arts at Portland State!
My experience as a filmmaker encapsulates a variety of media ranging from independent narrative films, branded media, sports broadcast, music videos, and more. Working primarily in the camera department, I've had the privilege to work on projects with clients such as Nike, Intel, PDX Next, and Tracklandia. I have also held multiple roles in event management, theater, marketing, and AV services, that have aided in my creative process.
My DP debut, Don't Trip (2022), won 1st place in Portland State University's film showcase. Since then, I have gone on to DP several narratives, branded media, and music video projects, and am currently working part-time with the Portland Trail Blazers as their video production intern for the 2023-2024 NBA season.
I admire the way in which the moving picture allows viewers to gain a new perspective on life through each visual, and believe that every shot should have intention and story. I find joy in the challenge of creating images that enhances these experiences and elevate its connection with the audience.
If I'm not holding a camera, you can catch me cooking, gardening, traveling, playing with my cats, or picking up new hobbies. Feel free to reach out if you would like to collaborate or get to know me more!
