Patrick Smith was born and raised in Northern California and has always been captivated by its landscape. He grew up studying the architectural hills and canyons of the San Francisco cityscape, as well as the natural open spaces near the Golden Gate in Marin County.
“I will go to great lengths to be in the right place at the right time to capture nature's finest moments,” says Smith. “I’m always trying to push the limits of landscape and seascape photography. The GorillaPod allows me to go places where a normal tripod just can’t go. And the stability of the GorillaPod guarantees razor sharp images even from exposures lasting minutes.”
The results speak for themselves. Smith’s work has been published in almost every major photography magazine, and one of his images is currently on display in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. as a winner of the Nation’s Best Ocean Views competition.
Smith’s work can also be seen on his website, or in the Capture Gallery in Sausalito and Healdsburg, California.
