“On all my workshops, my goal is not to simply help you take a nice photo, but to bring you face to face with intimate and unforgettable experiences in the natural world. I’ll also share with you the technical knowledge and creative understanding to carry with you on the rest of your photography journey.” WP

What People are Saying

“encouraging and patient ”

“He was quick to respond to any correspondence, encouraging, patient and adapted to suit any situation. It has changed my way of looking at our beautiful nature and the eagerness to take more photos cannot be ignored thanks to Will.”

Leanne Cullen – NZ

“raw and passionate”

“Will understands that you need to have flexibility when shooting and doesn’t have you lined up in a row like a tourist, which is similar to other workshops I have attended. If you want to learn true, raw and passionate photography, a Patino photography workshop is for you.”
