Back Photographer

Fred Greaves has been using photography to tell stories for over 25 years. Whether he is inches from a raging wildfire, documenting the chaos of a kindergarten classroom, or catching the enthusiastic smiles of U.S. Service Members stationed in Afghanistan as they take photos with their favorite A-list celebrities, he is always surrounded by action. Fred is a specialist at catching the powerful, the touching, and the unforgettable. He is no stranger to pressure-packed environments, and is comfortable creating iconic commercial photos for corporate clients, documenting the lives and the landscape of the world for an NGO, or anything in between.

In the Making: Wall Weavings

Jessica Filip’s favorite weaving projects are the large commissions that take several weeks to complete, such as her 6-foot-by-6-foot wall hanging displayed in South, a restaurant in Sacramento, or an 8-foot-by-12-foot piece for a client’s cabin in Montana. Her larger commissions range from $1,600 to $4,000.
