Nino is based in Houston, Texas, but works and teaches all over the United States. He has continually worked to create glamour images that transcend the all-too-common stereotypes while keeping a distinct business focus; an approach that has accelerated his career to a breakneck pace in less than 7 years.
In 2011, Nino intentionally branched out into automobile photography due to his immense passion for exotic motoring. Within a year, by the end of 2012, approximately a third of his work and client base stemmed from the exotic automobile industry.
Starting in the summer of 2012, due to industry demand, Nino Batista began the Master Class series of instructional courses, teaching glamour photography lighting, shooting and retouching. The first series of classes were held in his hometown of Houston, but then branched out to cities around Texas, and ultimately several dozen cities around the country. He is a Senior Writer for Fstoppers.com, has spoken at ShutterFest in St. Louis, AIBP Retreat in Ojai CA and New Orleans, and co-instructed a course on CreativeLive.
Nino is also the Director of the Syrens team on Spekture.
