Recording the world that I see, one image at a time…

Hello and welcome to Jim Pater Photography.

This website is a small collection of the thousands of photographs that I have taken over the last several years.

To learn more about me please feel free to go to the “about me” page.
If you would like to view the slideshows that were available on the old website, you may still do so by clicking on the links below:


St. Anne Convent ~ Northern Kentucky
This slideshow is of the St. Anne Convent located in Northern Kentucky where the filming of the 1988 movie "Rain Man"took place. I visited this site with two friends: Carol & Michael.

Franklin Park Conservatory
My friend Beth (VIP) and I visited the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio. It was a relatively short visit as I don’t know how long we could have endured the hot and steamy conditions inside the conservatory. We were moth sweating excessively but that didn’t dampen how much we both enjoyed looking around and taking photos.

There are many wonderful and beautiful things to see at Franklin Park Conservatory but I especially loved seeing how the artwork by glass artist Dale Chihuly was integrated with the botanical displays.


Visiting an old, empty building in Northside (Cincinnati)
A couple of my friends and I explored an old factory in an area that is called Northside. I've wanted to find a building like this for quite some time just to see what type of photos I could capture. The light was unbelievable in the late afternoon and the visit was extremely fun. There were still boxes of old purchase orders and contracts that we looked through. Supposedly, the building is to be refurbished into condominiums. If it is ever accomplished, they would be wonderfully large living spaces.
