The Restorative Effects of Landscape Photography

17 Jun

The newest article on the restorative effects of landscape photography is out in the current issue of On Landscape. Big thanks to Matt Payne over at F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast for his interview of William Patino. That was what sparked this article. Also, big thanks to David Pasillas, James Crouch of The Eye of the Mind Photography and Jennifer over at Art Therapy Nest in NY for helping me shape this article.

Give it a read, and let me know what you think! 😊

    An easy search led me to your article and I’m glad I took the time. Your description of your darkroom especially rang my bell. I too spent long hours in the dark, often forgetting the time (if I wasn’t on a deadline). But usually I would lose track of the passing hours and of anything else outside my door as well. In those days there were no cell phones so I was able to easily ignore phone calls too.

    And the bit about beating depression by exposing yourself to nature was also a good reminder for me. In that regard, we photographers have an advantage – our came
    cameras can pry us loose from our monitors and goad us into something that’s really healthy and possibly transformative for us.

    Good work!

    Restorative is a good description.
    Never developed film, but anything that makes me stop, observe, and appreciate is time well spent.
