Andria Hautamaki: Embedded in Place
Welcome. I'm a freelance photographer and writer from Colorado currently based in Puerto Natales, Chile. I am passionate about asking questions of the relationship between humans and their environment, and exploring how people are connected to a place within the influences of context, culture, and time.
Since 2011, I have been traveling, living, or working in Southern Chile. What started as a month-long backpacking trip to visit Torres del Paine National Park has grown into an enduring passion to share stories of the places and people of Patagonia.
I'm bilingual English/Spanish, and can also provide aerial photography services in non-populated areas with my MavicPro drone.
My editorial work is represented by Redux Pictures.
