Genève / Geneva based Headshot Portrait Photographer. Official Associate of Peter Hurley's Headshot Crew. Creative Consultant. Entrepreneur. Yoga Teacher.

Based in Geneva Switzerland, Patric Pop is one of the Suisse Romande's most accomplished creatives.

An alumni of the prestigious Art Center College of Design in California, in my twenty years' long career as Senior Art Director and Creative Director in some of Europe's finest advertising agencies, I did create outstanding, award-winning work for a great number of clients in many diversified fields.

Over the years, I had the good fortune to be selected as one of Switzerland’s young talents, launching an agency’s creative department, getting proposed partnership in another one and even co-founding a successful enterprise.
Sharing my extensive knowledge, I do also teach a highly popular class about advertising to the Bachelor and Master students of the SAE Film Institute in Geneva.

After many years of directing other photographers, I decided to pick up again a camera and dedicate more time to my life-long passion of photography. After working on product and still life photography, I am proud to say that my for work as headshot photographer continues to excel.  I have been training extensively with the Headshot industry's leader, my world-famous mentor Peter Hurley and was appointed in 2014 Official Associate of Peter Hurley's global Headshot Crew, guaranteeing a high level of consistent quality. This is a great honor, as there are only 70 Associates worldwide and a handful in Europe.
Perfectly fluent in English, French, German and Italian, I do connect easily with my clients and offer a laid-back, serene atmosphere during the photoshoot.

One of my favorite model is my beautiful daughter Stella. As a good dad, I have been celebrating her growing up with one good and memorable picture every single day since she was born and compiling all of them in the ongoing project «A Stella a day keeps the bad mood away».

Additionally to my creative career, in 2002 I did co-found INNERCITYOGA, leading it to become one of Switzerland's most respected yoga centers. Teaching some of the most popular yoga classes in town, I do guide my many students by precise instruction helping them accomplish their goals upon a smile.
