Jim Patterson Photography


Jim Patterson Photography


"The year end grand finale is not an easy thing to follow. I'm confident that the following pictures will lead the new year to more great photography. Jim Patterson is one of my favorite photographers. His images are not only inspiring but he is as well. If you take the time to read his photo descriptions you will discover he is not only a talented photographer but a man who cherishes nature and will go out of his way to do his part in trying to keep it beautiful for all of us. I urge you to read the description on his pictures to learn not only how he took the photo but you'll also learn more about the man behind the camera." ~Terrie K ~
