More About the Author

Michael Freeman, professional photographer and author, with more than 100 book titles to his credit, was born in England in 1945, took a Masters in geography at Brasenose College, Oxford University, and then worked in advertising in London for six years. He made the break from there in 1971 to travel up the Amazon with two secondhand cameras, and when Time-Life used many of the pictures extensively in the Amazon volume of their World's Wild Places series, including the cover, they encouraged him to begin a full-time photographic career.

Since then, working for editorial clients that include all the world's major magazines, and notably the Smithsonian Magazine (with which he has had a 30-year association, shooting more than 40 stories), Freeman's reputation has resulted in more than 100 books published. Of these, he is author as well as photographer, and they include more than 40 books on the practice of photography - for this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture. He is also responsible for the distance-learning courses on photography at the UK's Open College of the Arts.

Freeman's books on photography have been translated into fifteen languages, and are available on other Amazon international sites.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another masterclass from Micheal Freeman 28 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Covers the subject in some detail with excellent examples to get the thought processes moving. The book gives some key pointers in grabing the shot and avoiding trouble and embarassment. Important given how touchy photography in built up areas has become with the paranoia about terrorism and peoples general negative attitude towards photography in public, particularly where children are included in the shot. Regret that this is likely to be the one generation where candid photographs of children being children will be sadly lacking.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sadly disappointing 16 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Anyone familiar with Michael Freeman's work would have expected a lot from this book, as did I. I placed an order in advance of publication, expecting his usual mixture of expertise and accessible prose to help lead picture taking to the next level.
This book is disappointing. It feels like it was put together in a hurry - judging from the numerous typos. And judging by the overall slipshod impression created by the book as a whole. The individual sections seemed a little arbitrary, an effort to fill out a few more pages, in some cases. And the photographs were banal, in my opinion. You buy a book like this looking for inspiration, from a combination of contemporary and classic shots. The pictures chosen for this book were terribly dull.
It may be that I have missed the point and that it will be of use to absolute beginners.

I found this book very boring, as it didn't tell me anything different to what I was doing anyway using a bit of common sense.
