On his website Patrick explained why he decided to make the video: "Like many photographers, I have a ton of ideas floating around that I think would be great to explore.
"This idea for a photo series showing people the second they are hit with a taser has been something I have wanted to photograph for almost a year now.
"Despite all the barriers it presented and the countless people who thought I was a sadist, crazy, or just outright irresponsible, I decided to finally stop talking about this idea and actually execute it."
