Announcing the Richard Patrick Memorial Scholarship

The Dallas Society of Visual Communications Foundation in partnership with Dick Patrick is proud and honored to make available to photography majors/minors a new scholarship: The Richard Patrick Memorial Scholarship.A successful photographer for more than 30 years, Richard Patrick was introduced to the craft by his mother. He fine-tuned his skills while serving in the U.S. Army. After a stint in the Korean War, Richard went on to work for The Claron Ledger, National Football League, American Basketball Association and others, before opening his own studio.

Always generous with his experience and knowledge, he mentored countless young photographers throughout his career; many went on to build successful studios and businesses of their own. Although his photographs left a mark wherever they were seen, his greatest legacy was the unselfish way in which he encouraged and inspired young artists looking for guidance.

To honor his passing in 2014, this scholarship is being offered in hopes that the recipient will pass this legacy on and his memory will continue to live in the hearts and imagery of future photographic communicators.
