PHOCO is a team of photographers and videographers. The strength of PHOCO is the individual artist, and the strength of our artists is the team! #teamPHOCO


Established in 2009, PHOCO has become the premiere photography and videography company in Colorado. We are a team of photographers and videographers who believe in one another; art is carried on the wings of this kinship. We invite you to see what makes us different, we would love the chance to get to know you better over a coffee or a beer!

PHOCO was born out of the conviction that “if you want to go fast, you should go alone, if you want to go far, go together.” At PHOCO, we believe we are strong because of our team. PHOCO was founded by Patrick Edmiston and his desire to compassionately serve his community through the arts. The PHOCO team expanded in 2011 when Patrick added Shaye Fitzgerald to the team. Ryan Waneka added exponential talent to the team when he came on board in 2015. Hiring both Reid Cipriani and Aaron Patterson in 2017 only further propelled and enabled us to reach beyond the town, state, and country we live in with our work. Today, we continue with that core group and utilize talented sub-contractors to accomplish all of our work.

Our story runs deeper than the photos we take and the films we make. Fueled by the desire to craft something unique for every individual, and rooted in our passion to see our community thrive, PHOCO always comes back to the value of the priceless gift of a memory frozen in time. We believe no moment is too insignificant to be passed over, and that it truly is the little things that make a difference. It’s a privilege to get a front row seat to the stories unfolding around us. We pride ourselves on the stories we capture, and would consider it an honor to witness yours.

Beyond photography and videography, we have a passion for investing in the community that surrounds us. PHOCO is privileged to have been on the team of creatives that opened the Downtown Artery in 2013, and to fully stand behind local co-working space The Articulate, where our studio/office currently resides, since its opening in the summer of 2016. Our story would be incomplete without also acknowledging the other team members that have been with us for an internship or multiple years; Hudson Bloom, Emily Day, Shane Miles, Jamison Coe, Nikolay Anishenko and Ian Smith helped grow the team at PHOCO going out on their own along with Kent Bradley, Amy Bradley, and Morgan Bargine who all contributed so much to our overall success.

We’ve been told that working with us to tell your story is like working with a team of your friends, a group of confidants in your brand, and we truly enjoy getting to know you in the process of working together.
