I love the unpredictability of the ocean, it's restless motion and mood present such a powerful subject to shoot. Being by the waters edge at dawn inevitably reminds me of when I first picked up a camera some 5 years ago now. I was a different man back then, struggling internally to be honest. I truly wouldn't be who I am today without photography, perhaps that's why I love it so much, why I love being alone amidst the elements, wherever that may be. I've met some great people along the way, some of which I shared this particular morning with. It was enjoyable one with much laughter as we were battered by the waves. I didn't say it at the time but I was trying to capture an image that told a story, one of a man who was set free. Darkness encloses but light finds a way.

After looking at maps for months, I decided on this remote lake and surrounding mountains in the wilderness of New Zealand for a solo exhibition. Just a few hours before being dropped into the area by chopper, I had to make the tough decision to bring my pick up date forward due to a newly developing low front that was coming in from the south, bringing with it a week of solid rain. Although slightly discouraged, I was optimistic about the upcoming days and the unforeseen opportunities that still awaited. Completely alone and many, many miles from civilisation, I immediately felt a deep connection with the land around me unlike ever before. Upon being dropped off, as the hum of the chopper finally faded, I was greeted by the sound of water diving from a nearby mountain. No map could have prepared me for how pristine and rugged the area was, something that certainly made traversing more difficult yet equally rewarding. Being here, I was finally able to put aside any prior ideas and just let the place speak to me and see where I was led. Coming across this small river, I decided to follow it in the hopes of it opening up toward the mountains. The surrounding marsh was wet and muddy but finally after a couple of kilometres I made it to some higher ground where I was greeted to a grand view that literally stopped me in my tracks. It was here, beside the flowing water that I set up camp. I knew this time of year the sun was aligned between the mountains but of course the cloud cover would determine if I would see any light at all. On my final night the sunset was greyed out and it rained through the night. I had envisioned this shot in my mind and it truly was the one type of image I’d hoped to take away from here. Needless to say, I was at the mercy of the elements. as always. The following morning I’ll never forget those first few moments shortly after awakening, peering from my tent and seeing the faintest of openings far out on the horizon. I knew what was about to unfold. I’ve never had an experience like this but it’s changed me and my love and respect for wilderness and the preservation of these areas. Thanks for viewing.

Living by the ocean my whole life, it has become a natural and favourite subject of mine to photograph. After many years of getting to know its form, nothing quite prepared me for Iceland’s ‘Diamond Beach’ at Jokulsarlon. Here, various ice pieces and sculptures fall from the nearby glacier and float down the river and out to see. Many pieces wash up on the shore where they adorn the stretches of vast black sand. On this particular morning, this incredibly large sculpture dominated to landscape. Standing about 8ft tall at it’s height, it drew me in immediately however the real challenge was trying to do justice to not only it’s shape but also the relentless swell that surges up here and often claims many cameras. With my boots uncomfortably saturated, I opted to go bare foot in order to get closer to my subject in the hopes of revealing the finer and more turbulent details. By the afternoon she was consumed by the sea, never to be photographed again.

Afternoon light beams down upon an abundance of lupins in the New Zealand landscape. The air actually smelt like candy.

I like to take my time processing and sharing images that mean the most to me. I'll often repost old shots here(like this) just to 'maintain a presence'. That said, I'm currently in the process of adding over 20 new images to my website, a collection of personal favourites captured in the second half of this year. Looking forward to sharing these with you. Also, on a side note, 90% of next years workshops are full, so if you want to get on board a trip, please check my website or email me. Thanks!

After two weeks straight of running workshops, I had one last night in Iceland before heading home. I decided to forsake the much needed sleep one last time and headed out to the coast to catch the dawn with my friends. We shared some laughs, sat in silence before the sea, grabbed a coffee and then departed ways to different parts of the world. Photography has given me so much to be grateful for. This is 'Remnants', now up on my website with the remainder of my new work being added this month. 7-frame vertical pano hand stitched. Thanks for viewing. Oh, also doing a 'ask me anything' in my insta story so DM me with any questions because #procrastination.

Fjadrargljufur Canyon, Kirkjubaejarklaustur Iceland. I like to start my days saying this backwards 5 times fast. Really warms up the throat muscles.

So it turns out there's more to Hong Kong than just a city. Big thanks to @cathaypacific for getting me here on what was easily the best flight I've ever had. Looking forward to exploring some of the landscape here over the next few days. @discoverhongkong #discoverhongkong #lifewelltravelled

It's a beautiful thing when you begin to see darkness as light and what is perceived as chaos actually brings a renewing calm. @britzcampervans #gobycamper

Counting down the weeks until baby number two joins our little family. It's been a great week in the van, exploring some of the coast and sharing with my wife and son the everyday moments that I live for. Definitely looking forward to the next trip. @mauimotorhomes #mauimotorhomes

This past week on the road with my family has been a humbling and comforting reminder that life's not at all about the destination but the people, events and situations that ultimately shape and guide us along this ever twisting and uncertain path we all walk. We've spent the past week without an itinerary, just chasing these fleeting moments of light that help put things into perspective. I don't know what tomorrow holds, but I'm grateful for here and now. @britzcampervans #gobycamper

For a moment the rain subsided and the king of Fiordland emerged from the familiar darkness.

There's really nothing like standing under a dancing display of the northern lights, something that can't really be understood until its experienced. Really grateful to enjoy this moment with my workshop crews recently in Iceland, as many of them witnessed this unforgettable phenomenon for the first time. #williampatinoworkshops

Like the face of a familiar friend, I sit and wait for the sun to rise up and spread the warmth of its rays across the earth. Such harmonious order is beyond chance. Slowly, darkness becomes light.

Hey hey! Just a reminder that I'm currently taking print and canvas orders, all shapes and sizes sent worldwide. As well as gift vouchers that can be used for workshops too. Self promotion aside, I want to encourage you guys to get behind and support your favourite artists, whoever they may be. There's nothing like seeing a photo in print and I know for me it's still the highest honour. Gallery at williampatino.com

Self portrait captured on a brief solo hike in the remote and rugged Fiordland wilderness. Being isolated in the presence of such immense and untouched beauty has really reminded me what I'm truly passionate about and why I fell in love with photography in the first place.

Today I call these mountains home as I head off solo into the remote wilderness for several nights. To connect, create and to be amidst the presence of something increasingly greater than ourselves. See you upon my return!

Both enchanting and somewhat frightening, the aurora violently moved in an unusual way on this particular morning as it shook and jolted sporadically across the sky. It was 3am with no one else in sight, all but the familiar clouds which were moving in fast. Looking up i took a deep breathe. I couldn't help but laugh and shake my head in disbelief, yet again. This life overwhelms me and although us humans have a way of messing things up, I'm grateful to be alive.
