2013 Photo Summary

0001

2013 was our 15th year together, it was also our best. Thankfully, I say that at the end of every year.

Once again, it was a year of continual movement and countless experiences. Most importantly, we collected more memories with great people, friends both new and old, and folks we met along the way. There’s a fact continually beat into my head, we couldn’t do what we do without truly amazing people as part of the process. This goes for everything.

We didn’t want this final summary to be a portfolio. Instead we wanted images about who we are, what we do, and especially images that feel important to us. Our business is both PatitucciPhoto and Dan & Janine, there’s little division between work and life. Together, we shoot what we do as much as we shoot with others. Our life is spent active in the mountains, traveling, and making photos of it all. These are some favorites.

Starting at 4am, Janine and I ran from our house 30km along the crest of the Hardergrat and finished on the distant most peak, the Brienzer Rothorn. It was probably the most fun I have ever had in the mountains. Interlaken, Switzerland.

We spent the bulk of the summer on glaciers in the Swiss Alps shooting several stories on environmental change. These magnificent glaciers are rapidly shrinking, see them before it’s too late. Zermatt, Switzerland.
