With an artist's eye and attention to detail, Judy Patrick documents the challenges of construction, transportation and exploration operations for the resource development industry. Her photographs depict the scale of each project and the dreams realized by the architects, engineers and builders involved. Industry, her favorite subject matter, is what some might call a logistical nightmare. The temperature, the environment, and the scope of the project are all difficult variables. But, for Judy, these are opportunities to tell a story. After 20 plus years working as a professional photographer for the energy industry, she knows her way around industrial projects and remote explorations sites. Documenting drill rigs, exploring underground mines, or shooting major road construction, Judy has worked for some of the world's largest companies in Alaska and across the Lower 48.
She has an NSTC Card, a BP North Slope badge, is HUET certified, and also holds a TWIC card, so there are not many places that she can’t go.
