William Patino joins the podcast to about his photography career and what gets him going.
William grew up in the coastal town of Wollongong, NSW Australia and has been a full-time landscape photographer since 2014. He now resides in the mountainside town of Te Anau, in the South Island of New Zealand.
Photography came into William’s life around 2011 and it has helped him see the world differently, giving him a newfound appreciation for nature and the many intricacies that many overlook and perhaps take for granted. William’s work is based around a deep reverence and awe of nature and the creator, and it’s this that he tries to express through his images. His love for dramatic light and atmosphere is a constant inspiration, and he enjoys the endless pursuit of these elusive moments and the freedom found within.
Most at home in his adopted backyard of Fiordland, and its mountainous landscapes, WilliamI truly enjoys rugged coastal scenes and being amidst the infinite greens of the rainforests. Exploration and weather plays a huge role in his photography and he draws inspiration from exploring the unknown and those fleeting, spontaneous moments in nature.
We discuss his methods of teaching on his workshops and online courses, the importance of being a business person first and foremost when it comes to setting up a photography business and his sense of wonder at the world around us
I hope you enjoy the show!
