Let's first decide if "Patman" is to be treated as a surname or as a given
name. I would say given name. Therefore AACR2 22.8 applies. Or, if you
decide it is neither a surname nor a given name then 22.11 Entry Under
Phrase applies. If you go with 22.11, you have this instruction:
If such a name does not convey the idea of a person, add in parentheses a
suitable designation in English.
So now you have to judge whether "Patman" conveys the idea of a person.
If you judge that it does not, then Patman (Photographer) is a reasonable
heading you could construct.
On the other hand, let's go back to my original interpretation of Patman
as a kind of given name. You've now got a conflict with the already
established Patman. Since you don't have any dates or fuller forms that
can be added to the name, you apply 22.19A1 and "devise a suitable brief
term and add it in parentheses." So Patman (Photographer) is a perfectly
correct AACR2 heading. RDA is not needed here to resolve this conflict.
