Pasha Patriki

Since he was 4 year old, Pasha was determined to become a filmmaker. Growing up in Moscow, Russia, he started learning the craft by playing with his grandfather’s Super-8 camera. After moving to Toronto in 1996, Pasha started working on various film sets as a lighting technician, simultaneously studying in the Film & Video production program at York University in Toronto, Canada. Today – 18 years professionally in the business – Pasha’s work as Director of Photography has been recognized in Canada, USA and internationally. Diverse shooting styles allow Pasha to work on projects varying from music videos to commercials to feature films. Almost every year music videos lensed by Pasha receive nominations at Much Music Video Awards, and commercials with his name as DP are winning Promax awards. Pasha has shot videos for notable artists like Hedley, Billy Talent, Down With Webster, Carly Rae Jepsen, Mariana’s Trench, Finger Eleven, Anjulie, and many others. Among 20 feature film titles behind Pasha’s belt are “The Sound” (Rose McGowan), “Tapped Out” (Michael Biehn, Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida), “Gridlocked” (Dominic Purcell, Danny Glover, Stephen Lang, Trish Stratus, Vinnie Jones), “Hacker” (Callan McAuliffe, Lorraine Nicholson, Clifton Collins Jr.), “Burning Daylight” (Robert Knepper, Paul Calderon), “Full Out” (Jennifer Beals, Lamar Johnson), “The Christmas Switch” (Natasha Henstridge, Brian Krause), and others.
