More About the Author

Michael Freeman, professional photographer and author, with 135 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 been consolidated as one of the leading reportage photographers. Of his many books, which have sold 4 million copies worldwide, more than 60 titles are on the practice of photography - for this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture, and he is the world's leading author on photographic practice. Having been for many years responsible for the distance-learning courses on photography at the UK's Open College of the Arts, Freeman now runs a monthly online Photography Foundation Course at http://www.my-photo-school.com/course/michael-freemans-the-photographers-eye/

Freeman's books on photography have been translated into 27 languages, and are available on all other Amazon international sites.

Product Description

Review

Freeman's videos cover camera and lenses,
framing and composition, exposure and light,
light and colour, locations and storytelling.
Freeman is a competent photographer, so his
own illustrative examples inspire confidence in his advice. --The Sydney Morning Herald

Michael Freeman: the man who spends his
life freeing those threatened by the oppression of their own ignorance. You know where you are with a Freeman book and this time he's transcended
the shackles of the printed work to talk at you through your TV screen. As with many of his previous works, this is a recommended purchase. --Amateur Photographer

Michael Freeman has written dozens of books about all aspects of photography, but in this book and DVD release, which features more than four hours of footage, he represents a guide to the key elements of photography, including framing, composition, exposure, light and storytelling in pictures. --Digital Photographer

On first inspection, £40 for a couple of disks and a small book seems overpriced. However this really is an in-depth, educational course in practical photographic techniques and compositions,
something you would pay ten times as much for to be in a classroom... The combination of the book and
DVDs is well worth the money and comes highly recommended for new photographers. --What Digital Camera?

For what it is, it is excellent. It's not an advanced course in any way, but it is interesting to have someone TELL you something, as apposed to reading it. It is a great supplement to his various books and guides... I liked it

The main information is contained in the DVD rather than the book but Michael Freeman is a very watchable presenter who clearly knows his stuff. My only criticism is that the short chapters are stand alone videos meaning that you have to sit through the opening and closing credits each and every time and on the shorter clips they can be longer than the actual content. But overall the information is clear and very useful for a beginner.
