Fred Greaves is a photographer with nearly 25 years of experience in editorial, documentary and commercial photography. Trained as a photojournalist, and having spent time working as a staff photographer at the San Diego Union-Tribune, Fred is a specialist at creating compelling images that tell his clients’ stories.
You can often find Fred working in the middle of a raging wildfire, in the flurry of a hospital emergency room, documenting A-list entertainers performing for troops in Afghanistan, and carefully crafting images in a commercial setting.
He excels at turning adverse situations into art and for delivering beautiful photographs in the most pressure-packed environments. He finds order in chaos and beauty in simple moments and his ability to put his subjects at ease shows in the intimacy of his images.
When Fred isn’t out shooting assignments, he contributes to the photographic community by guest lecturing on photography and photojournalism at schools across the U.S. as well as having spent time teaching photography at the University of California, San Diego and Point Loma Nazarene University.
He is also a former board member of the San Diego ASMP chapter.
