Set in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, this is an incredible opportunity to expand your visual horizons under the guidance of one of the great masters in contemporary photography.
Take part and experience a renewed sense of energy, inspiration and vitality in your photography.
Workshop description provided by Freeman Patterson:
Basic statement - The workshop medium is photography (digital or film). The workshop crafts are "seeing" and visual design, that is, using good visual design to communicate what you see and how you feel about what you see.
Each of the five (5) Master Workshops with Freeman Patterson will last one day (9am to 4pm with breaks and catered lunch provided and included in the workshop fee).
Each Master Workshop is highly limited to only 10 participants!
These are some of the smallest workshops Freeman has ever taught! The small group size intensifies the experience and guarantees an unparalled level of personal attention and opportunity for one-on-one interaction.
Freeman will discuss and talk about the WHY, not so much about the HOW of photography.
Each Master Workshop will include time for lecture/instruction, a slideshow presentation of Freeman's images, and hands-on shooting time under Freeman's guidance and supervision.
The workshop will end with an in-depth review and critique of each of the participant's images created throughout the day.
Students may use film or digital capture. If using film, please advise our office so that we can arrange for speedy film processing to allow you to participate in the critique/ review session at the end of the workshop day.
Participants are encouraged to sign up for only one (1) of the Master Workshops at this time. Please contact us if you are interested in multiple Workshops and we will arrange for such opportunity if space permits.
Due to the long waiting list that is already established, you are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible to guarantee availability of your choosen workshop date. Thank you!

Presentation description provided by Freeman Patterson:
When a person learns the building blocks of a language and how to arrange and re-arrange them within the context of a phrase, a sentence, or a paragraph, she or he can communicate effectively. The same is true for pictures. When a person knows the visual building blocks and ways of arranging and re-arranging them, she or he can convey his thoughts and feelings clearly.
This program is filled with solid, useful guidance for anybody working in a visual medium, but especially those who work in a two-dimensional one, such as photography, painting, drawing, etc. However, gardeners, sculptors, dancers, etc. will also find much that is relevant and helpful.
