In 1993, he joined forces with his biggest competitor to form Gold&Goose, a world-renowned agency that rapidly became the leader in bike sport sponsorship photography.

In 2007, Patrick began to work more closely with McLaren Automotive, the British Supercar manufacturer. He was looking after all of their road and race car related photography along with his team of freelance photographers, retouchers and videographers.
