Overview

Freeman Patterson is an internationally renowned photographer and teacher whose deep love of the natural world is communicated through his extraordinary photographs and his writing. His work has taken him from the barren icescapes of Ellesmere Island to the hot sands of the Namib desert to the lush rain forests of the Pacific Coast. He also finds evocative images just a few steps from his home overlooking the Saint John River in rural Canada.

Of particular interest to photography enthusiasts are his discussions of natural and graphic design, the importance of light and color, and techniques of composition. Patterson demonstrates how making photographs of imagined landscapes can extend experience and enable the photographer to fashion new earthscapes that are a unique expression.
