I cannot say enough good things about Freeman Patterson. He is the most inspiring photographer that I have ever had the opportunity to meet. I was turned on to Freeman Patterson by my camera club, the Northern Virginia Photographic Society, and eventually had the time and money to attend a workshop. Freeman holds workshops with his partner Andre Gallant, another fine Canadian photographer.
I first bought “Photographing the World Around You: A Visual Design Workshop” to assist in attending my club’s self-improvement workshops back in 2006. I also bought “Photography of Natural Things” and “Photography and the Art of Seeing: A Visual Perception Workshop for Film and Digital Photography” to get some more of Freeman’s writing. Later, at the workshop, I bought “The Garden” and “Photoimpressionism and the Subjective Image: An Imagination Workshop for Photographers.” All are well read, and I still get something out of reading each one of them again.
