The person who risks nothing…

The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live. ~ LEO BUSCAGLIA

You are so welcome…thank you for saying. And CREATING spectacular images.

Philippe Manguin - July 17, 2012 - 5:41 am

true….yes! I sometimes scared about the future and the choices I make. but if you always scared about everything….things will never change.
for now… my professional life is concerned…did I make the good choice by choosing photography even if it s the thing I like the most to do it is not giving to me the possibilty to earn money with.
hard choices…..be happy and do what you really love but stay poor, or to do something you don t really like but allows to have the money you need to live….

to meditate :-))).

I am really fond of your work, but also of your personnality. I hope that one day I could meet you and shoot some great landscapes with you. I agree with you, and of course what makes your photos unique is the risk you take and the time you spend to get THE picture. Congratulations to such an artist!

Thank you Maria :)

PJ Van Nest - June 27, 2012 - 6:27 am

Patrick, you have an awesome gift! I’m wondering if that photograph of the rocks with a smaller boulder jammed between 2 of them and you’re standing on the boulder. I think it’s the most beautiful photograph I’ve ever seen. Are you going to sell prints? I wish I had the name of the photograph. I saw it on Facebook.

Lucie Blancher - June 27, 2012 - 12:01 pm

Your photos are incredible. It has to be a happiness that to make photos in the middle of nature…I’m a beginner in photography and I’m filled with admiration for your work! ( I’m french so it is possible that there are spelling mistakes! ) Thanks.

Patrick Di Fruscia - June 28, 2012 - 2:38 am

Hi PJ, Thank you so much for your great comment, really means a lot to me my friend.. I do already sell prints. I know exactly the shot you are referring to ..I haven’t named it because saw it more like more of a profile shot.

Patrick Di Fruscia - June 28, 2012 - 2:40 am

amazing photos, so beautiful. however I got a question, hope you can give me a few pointers, you saide that the photo “A Beautiful Life, Samana, Dominican Republic”, you made it by stitching two photos side by side, I am curious that how you managed to put the moving waves of two photos together as into one? thanks a lot.

Yong Hua - July 20, 2012 - 9:15 pm

A Happy Accident

As I was ready to make a short clip in the Faroe Islands, I asked my friend Adam Burton to start recording by pressing the button but he accidentally pressed the shutter instead and took that shot..Kinda glad he did.  Interested in visiting the Faroes? Visit http://www.visitfaroeislands.com/

Take your seat on the shore. Listen to the ancient voice in the waves. Taste the salt of life on your tongue. Run your fingers through the eternal sand. Breathe deeply. If you find yourself worrying about your cell phone and emails, if you find yourself feeling guilty that you should be doing “something important,” breathe deeply again. And again. Breathe deeply until every fabric of your being is reminded that this, being here, is your top priority. This is peace. This is wisdom. The work is a means to living, but this is the living. – Brian Vaszily

Is that on top of Borgin? (The mountains name is The Castle) It looks familiar… I was there this summer.

Faroe Paradise - October 12, 2012 - 4:30 pm

Great photo, but can not find out on which island the picture is taken :-)

Anna E. Joensen - October 12, 2012 - 6:39 pm

Hatta má vera tikið á Eysturoynni. Vegurin til Funnings og Funningsfjørð sæst høgrumegin og vegurin til Elduvíkar vinsturmegin.

Idyllic place…

Rock of Ages


This is a shot I took on my recent road trip across Quebec. I was with a friend of mine and we were looking for a place to shoot sunset that night. I had spotted this great location while driving and told him we should head back. He wasn’t that crazy about that particular spot and even decided to drop me off to find a better place. Man, was I glad I stopped…that place was simply amazing. Didn’t see what he managed to take that evening, I sure hope he was as fortunate as me.

As for the title..As I was post processing that image..that song from Def Leppard played on the radio… Why Not..Perfect Title…Coincidence???
