Movie industry lobbyists at the MPAA are trying to resurrect SOPA-style web censorship via a back door. Let's defeat online censorship again. Tell the MPAA to kill the #ZombieSOPA. https://takeaction.withgoogle.com/g-stop-mpaa

Anyone playing with the new Gmail "SHelfies"?...Looks like some crazy image "auto correction" is trashing my image (after having it very specifically adjusted exactly the way it should be, not boosting mid- and dark-tones -- UGH! Photog's nightmare! ;)

I'm using a custom theme in Gmail on the Web and I think you'll like it too! Check it out on your desktop or laptop. #gmailthemes

I was silly to forget to include some photos from this place in Newberg!

Check the full set of images, virtual tour PLUS video at http://jeffreyfreeman.com/4008/

I believe the Real Estate Video will become the future of #virtualtours  when it comes to selling special properties.  Drop me a line if you have any questions!

Please consider helping a dear friend, Tom...
Tom & Lily's lives were recently turned upside down when Tom was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, a disease that can only be cured by a lung transplant. Simply put, they need our help!

Introduction
I am a freelance commercial photographer based in Portland, Oregon.  With a love for the Pacific Northwest, I focus on shooting people & architecture, and have a passion for food photography.  I create images with integrity, speaking to the character of the person, place or ingredient.  As a self-proclaimed photo-geek (with an engineering background) I am always experimenting with new ways to push, pull, stretch or bend light.

Check out www.JeffreyFreeman.com for more info.


Jeff Freeman, Photo-Syntheticist
It wasn’t easy. Even from the very beginning. Jeff came into the world after 22 hours of hard labor by his poor mom, his head so big that the doctors finally had to take him out by C-section. He says this must account for his bent (and some would say, cone-headed) view of the world, and for his love of photography.

But how did he become a photographer?
He kept his true love secret for years. Curiously, Jeff’s background is in engineering. Thinking he should be an engineer―a practical profession―he made a living as a web-designer, continuing to apply his engineer’s mind to art and commerce. But somewhere along the way, he heeded the call of his passion. As that big-headed kid, he used to spend hours poring over National Geographic magazines, imagining what it was like to be one of those adventurer-photographers. And there was something about the connection with the physics of light, the beauty of the world, and his own urgency to make pictures that he could no longer resist. He had to bring them together in one enterprise: Photo-synthesis.

Great Artists Steal
Jeff says his great influences have been, of course, the greats of photography; Joe McNally, Annie Liebowitz, Ansel Adams, and Richard Avedon. He is unabashed about “stealing” from their techniques. He likes to say, “Great artists steal,” stealing this famous quote itself from Steve Jobs who, aptly, stole it from Picasso. Looking at Jeff’s work, you can see where he’s been influenced by all the great photographers. It’s quite deliberate. But it’s still uniquely Jeff’s.

The No-Technique Technique
Does he use tricks? Of course. But Jeff’s main trick is to so mask the technique that the observer isn’t even aware of it. It’s the subject that’s the star. Whether it’s a person, a room, an object, or a scene, when you look at a Jeff Freeman shot, you are taken by the subject, not the technique.His portraits are so alive you feel as though you are right there talking to the person.

His interiors make you want to curl up in them.

His food is so good you can taste it.

When you look at his landscapes you feel the air and hear the trees rustling.

This is when Jeff knows his work is done. The photos speak for themselves. And that’s photo-synthesis.
