Nature photography: Why it’s for everybody

Nature Photographer

Anyone who knows San Francisco-based photographer Dino Tomassetti, Jr. can say that he is all about nature photography.  He sees the best of what the natural world has to offer and goes on various adventures to capture the splendor of nature.  Like so many nature photographers, Dino Tomassetti, Jr. has fallen deeply in love with the genre and foresees this love affair to last the rest of his life. 

As Dino Tomassetti, Jr. puts it – there are far too many things in nature that are worth falling in love with, from majestic landscapes to breathtaking bodies of water to countless species of wildlife in their natural habitat.  In many of his blogs, he encourages everyone to try nature photography at least once in their lives.

For instance, in this blog, Dino Tomassetti, Jr. shares some of the best benefits he has ever reaped from nature photography. 

Arguably, the most obvious benefit of nature photography is the workout it affords nature photographers.  While almost every photography genre allows a person to keep moving, nature photographers do so outdoors, where the air is clean, and the terrain can be challenging.  A large part of a nature shoot is a workout, which is good news for the heart, lungs, and body.  A nature photographer almost always experiences better blood and oxygen circulation, especially when breathing only the cleanest and freshest air and all the hiking while carrying their equipment

But Dino Tomassetti, Jr.’s favorite benefit from nature photography is just how much stress it relieves. The activity is as good for one’s mental health as it is for their physical health.  After spending weeks in the rat race in the urban jungle, time in the wilderness to capture many of this world’s amazing creations will undoubtedly work wonders for anyone.  And nature photography not only helps a person see the beauty of the world, but it also gives them time for introspection, to know themselves better.

Nature photography will also most definitely instill in people a renewed sense of appreciation for the world.  Dino Tomassetti, Jr. believes that in today’s world, many people have forgotten or simply taken for granted the fact that this planet is everyone’s home.  He assures everyone that nature photography will remind them of what the planet truly means for everyone.
