The awarded photo book "Playboy Behind The Scenes" gives a unique look into the mysterious world of Playboy Magazine through personal and intimate snapshots of tangible moments during Playmate and celebrity photo shoots. Over 150 pictures of unexpected, undirected and natural responses; humor, disillusionment, absurdism and vulnerability in an erotic setting.
Mr. Hugh M. Hefner, editor-in-chief of Playboy Magazine, wrote the foreword of the book.
"In these compelling images, Patrick has captured the soul of the Playboy shoot and offered a true celebration of, and homage to, the people who make these beautiful things happen. Vividly here is the intimacy, the fun, and the dedication it takes to create the very best in contemporary erotica. And along the way, true to his calling, he gives the reader a peek behind the curtain of the Playboy lifestyle."
The book was nominated for the Photography Masters Cup 2013, received an "Honorable Mention" at the International Photo Awards 2012 and was voted "Best Photo Book" in Communication Arts' Photo Annual 2012.
