Patti Bandy
Head Photographer/Researcher

An Art Director by day (@immotionstudios) and a photography nerd by night and weekends. She has always been into photography. Ever since she was a kid - you wouldn’t see her without a camera. She has even spent time in dark rooms developing film, and loves the instant gratification of a Polaroid.
Once Upon a Town has been a passion project and a great outlet for sharing photos. She enjoys the great places "Once" visits in Texas (and beyond), and loves the people she meets. When she's not out shooting - she enjoys spending time with her family, two dogs and two cats.Some of our smaller towns are disappearing fast. But no matter what town we visit, there is always a story.
