“A true guru of digital photography, Michael Freeman has mastered all the principles he teaches.” – Digital Photographer Magazine
“Michael Freeman is a leading light in photography and the use of digital techniques” – Digit Magazine
Michael Freeman is perhaps the most widely published authority on photography in the world, not to mention a successful photographer in his own right. This recognition represents the wisdom that only four decades of editorial and commercial work can bring. A graduate of Brasenose College, Oxford University, Freeman first worked in London’s advertising industry during the period of exciting change that took place in the 60s. In 1970, he made the life-changing decision to travel up the Amazon river with two second-hand cameras, and when many of the resulting pictures were published Time-Life, he chose to embark on a full-time photographic career.
Since then, Freeman has consolidated his reputation as one of the world’s leading reportage photographers, working for clients that include all the globe’s major magazines, most notably Smithsonian magazine (for which he has shot more than 40 stories). Of his many books, which have sold over 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.
Freeman’s books on photography, including L'occhio del fotografo, have been translated into 27 languages.
