Patrick Di Fruscia
Give Back to Nature Founder Professional World Photographer
Patrick is a World Visionary Fine Art Nature & Landscape Photographer. His experiences in nature became a large influence in affecting his ultimate passion for the beauties of the natural world. His work has won many awards, has been published and displayed thru a multitude of media (books, calendars, magazines, travel guides etc.) and by many prestigious companies such as National Geographic, Time Magazine, and Wall Street Journal. His work has also been displayed in several art galleries around the world, including the Carnevale Gallery located in Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada and at the Smithsonian Museum of National History in Washington DC..
Patrick's passion for nature photography has permitted him to travel to some of the most amazing places on earth, to have amazing life experiences, express his creativity, and meet amazing people along the way. As much as all of these made him feel incredible, he always had that deep feeling he was not doing enough, not giving back enough. The phrase Always Leave a Place Better Than You Found It. started him thinking about his whole life. If he was to leave tomorrow, would he have made a difference in this world for others to enjoy? No matter how he looked at it, he kept telling himself, he could do a lot better! Yes, he was creating, sharing the beauty of our planet but for what purpose exactly? Was this all ego-driven? The last thing he wants to do is to leave his true purpose behind. Patrick reflected greatly on who he was, who he wants to be and how can he get there. It is only by experiencing who he did not want to be that he was able to see who he truly wanted to become. He knew that he had several passions. Nature, Traveling, and Photography of course but he also loved to help others. Being able to take pictures of amazing locations is one thing, but giving back and making a difference in our world and in people’s lives is priceless. He had to find a way to combine all his passions together, combine them in a way that it would really make a difference.
It is for those reasons that he had decided to create “Give Back to Nature” in 2018. He truly believes that together we can make a difference and leave this world a better place. It is not the work of a single brick that builds kingdoms but more the way they hold themselves together that makes it possible.
