Short biography
Freeman Wilford Patterson, photographer (b at Long Reach, NB 25 Sept 1937). Freeman Patterson is one of Canada's most popular landscape photographers. He is particularly acclaimed for his sensuous colour and technical skill in images that evoke the spiritual qualities of nature. Patterson developed an interest in photography while studying for a Master's of Divinity at Union Theological Seminary, New York, during the early 1960s. In 1965 he gave up a position teaching religious studies in Alberta in order to devote himself to photography full time. Patterson's photographs are best known through pictorial publications. A teacher and frequent writer on photography, Patterson is the author of several instructive guides on photographic technique and aesthetics.
