Patricia Lanza is currently working with the Annenberg Foundation as the Director of Talent and Programming for their new center of Photography in Los Angeles. The Annenberg Space for Photography produces exhibitions, which includes a print exhibition and a film production created for each show. She worked on the development of the photographic gallery from its inception to its opening in 2009, researching and writing an initiative on photography for Wallis Annenberg.

She began her career in photography with the National Geographic Society in Washington DC where she had over 700 pictures published over a 10 year period. Assignments have taken her to five continents and 40 countries. She as well produced articles for a variety of international newspapers and magazines, and was under contract with the Tribune Syndicate News Corporation.


“I have known Patricia Lanza for over 20 years both professionally and personally. From her years at National Geographic to shooting for clients I have recommended her to, she has produced photographic assignments with positive feedback. We also had the opportunity to teach a workshop in Tuscany and I saw how she shared her knowledge and expertise with students.”
Greg Gorman, Photographer

“I have been a friend and colleague with Patricia for many years, I can recommend her as dedicated to quality in her work, and her wonderful photography especially for National Geographic. I have been teaching film at Cal State Univ at Long Beach for 33 years and I can highly recommend her, as she has taught for me at the American Film Institute.”
Gary Prebula, Professor CSULB (Long Beach)
