KyleWith: Photojournalist Pat Kane

Update: Pat Kane has since left UpHere Magazine and is working as a Freelance Photographer, servicing clients in Yellowknife and the Northwest Territories

Pat Kane is an Editorial Photographer for the Yellowknife based UpHere Magazine and has been for the last 6 years. He tells me he comes from an artsy family, but it wasn't until in college that he really got into photography. He was in college to become a reporter with the hope of writing for a magazine when his interest in photography came about.

After getting an internship with a Sports Photography company and later taking a job with them, Pat moved up to Yellowknife to work with UpHere Magazine and now has seen most of the Arctic. Depending on the assignment, Pat has gone to different communities to document the people and the culture. He calls him self a generalist photographer, but that hasn't stopped him from producing great photos, and says his favourite type of photography is probably editorial portraits.

Recently Pat is working on a project with Yellowknife filmmaker Jay Bulckaert. It is a documentary and photo essay on the famous Range Street which is located in Yellowknife. They plan on showcasing the Photos and Film for everyone to once they complete the project.
