Freeman Patterson workshop at Vancouver Photo Workshops

I attended a Freeman Patterson workshop through Vancouver Photo Workshops recently and had a great time. It's been a struggle to get out and shoot recently so it was great to get some inspiration and discuss photography with other photographers.

In case you don't know who Freeman Patterson is you should checkout his website :

Freeman's book, Photography and the Art of Seeing ( was one of the 3 things that really got me into photography. The other two being the nikon D70 and our move to Ottawa.

The workshop started with a presentation from Freeman and a video. After that we headed out on our own into the area surrounding Vancouver Photo Workshops. We came back and reviewed our images plus a few images we had brought that we had previously shot. The discussion was really interesting and seeing the way Freeman and the other students viewed the images and broke down the composition gave me a few more things to think about when I'm out shooting.

Here are the images I took that day:





And here are the previously taken images I brought:
