Pat was born in Saratoga Springs, NY and grew up in Calvert County, MD. He graduated from the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. While in High School, Pat got his first SLR. He immediately fell in love with photography and began entering and winning local competitions. While pursuing his Business degree at UMD, he worked as a photographer at Cindy’s TLC Portraits. After 3 years, he transitioned to Rieger Communications and began printing work for Wedding photographers and government agencies. He joined OTE in 2005. Pat and his co-owner, Rachel Baron, bought OTE from Chris Foley in 2009. As OTE continues to grow, Pat helps lead a team that strives to provide the very best art reproduction and digital fine art printmaking the industry has to offer.
“… When working with our clients, I thrive on doing whatever it takes to ensure their success. It is fulfilling to have an artist come through the door, having no idea what a giclee is, and teach them everything there is to know about giclees and how it can benefit their career. It is the best feeling in the world to take everything I know about business, printing, and photography and apply it to artists and photographers by helping them develop successful strategies they can execute.”
Pat McMahon is also an active freelance photographer.
