Eduardo Patino a professional photographer for over two decades, serving an international clientele spanning the world of the performing arts to the corporate arena. With a unique background as a football player turned theater director and professional dancer, Eduardo brings to his work a passion for his art and an extraordinary understanding of the human figure, whether for corporate portraiture, advertising, or promotional photography for dance and theater. His understanding of the athleticism and artistic sensibilities of dance come from his former career as a dancer, when he appeared with the Metropolitan Opera, the New Jersey Ballet, and numerous other regional ballet companies. A career-ending injury redirected him to his earliest pursuit - photography.
Eduardo's clients depend him for forward-thinking, style-driven advertising, promotion and publicity shots, theater/dance posters, and magazine covers, as well as executive portraits.
Eduardo's experiences as an athlete and dancer continue to influence his work in a distinctly personal way. His photography communicates a strong sense of timing, line, and movement. His intrinsic knowledge, for how the body moves allows him to capture the exact peak of a movement or a moment, whether in a full body view or a dynamic portrait. Both in the studio or on location Eduardo's superb technical skills and control of light, combined with his easygoing, direct nature makes every person in front of his camera feel trusting, comfortable and look exceptional.
