Tony Patterson is a formally trained award winning commercial and fine art photographer with national clientele experience. He resides a few minutes down the road from Lynchburg, TN (home of Jack Daniel's Whiskey) and is originally from Ohio.
Patterson specializes in the use of film photography equipment and the black & white image. Patterson currently prints in his personal darkroom with limited editions offered for sale. He loves all things vintage. Patterson also loves the Fuji X line of cameras for digital endeavors, as they feel so much like a film camera in his hands.
His work has been on display in the Tennessee State Museum, featured in print publications, utilized in website editorials, and displayed in various exhibits. Most recently his work was on display for three months as part of a world class exhibit at the Nashville International Airport.
Additionally, Patterson's images have been placed under license by Fujifilm North America for use in their ads worldwide. He is a RAW Artist and also one of the editorial contributors for the print and web publication Photographize (www.photographize.co). Patterson has been a judge in international black & white photographic competitions and local events.
The Boiler Room Imagewerks name is derived from a studio that Patterson had located in the boiler room of a local Coca Cola bottling plant. It was perfect for Patterson's style and helped launch the work that you see here. When the studio was closed, the name stuck and will forever remain.
Patterson is available on a commission basis. Additionally, he is also available for guest speaking engagements and instruction. This includes the unique ability to provide live and interactive web based instruction as well utilizing Zoom technology.
