Andria Hautamaki: Embedded in Place
Welcome. I'm an independent photographer and writer from Colorado who is currently based in Puerto Natales, Chile. My personal work focuses on the intersection of agriculture, the environment, and rural life.
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 the stories of the people and places in Patagonia. I’m bilingual English/Spanish and am also a certified FAA Part 107 drone pilot with a license for commercial aerial sUAS photography.
I contribute to Redux Pictures and I’m a member of Women Photograph. My work has appeared in CNN, Fem Patagonia, High Country News, National Geographic Traveler, OZY, STAT News, and Western Horseman, among others.
