Thinking like a Photojournalist
“Taking a picture is just the start… what is the process to create a visual narrative?”
With a background that ranges from capturing A-list celebrities visiting troops in Afghanistan to working from the middle of raging wildfire to carefully crafting images in a commercial setting, award-winning photographer Fred Greaves is the answer to all your photography needs.
Twenty-five years as a trained photojournalist and former staff photographer at the San Diego Union-Tribune has led to one goal: Using compelling images to illustrate important moments for a client to raise public awareness, create goodwill and generate financial support.
With a rich background that has earned an impressive client list ranging from the United States military to the National Basketball Assn., he excels at turning challenging situations into art and delivering quality work even in pressure-packed environments. Fred finds order in chaos and beauty in simple moments, with an ability to put subjects at ease that shows in the intimacy of his images.
