ED FREEMAN

Ed Freeman was born and raised near Boston and majored in French and Russian at Oberlin College in Ohio. After college, he had a career as a performing musician, arranger and record producer. Highlights of his music career include working as a road manager on the 1966 Beatles’ tour, arranging and conducting a touring orchestra for Gregg Allman of the Allman Brothers, arranging Carly Simon’s debut album and arranging and producing Don McLean’s iconic “American Pie.” Moving to California in 1977, he gravitated towards film scoring, computer music, consulting and teaching. In 1989, he set up a studio in downtown Los Angeles and began a gradual transition to working full time as a photographer.

These days he shoots stock for Getty Images and has an active career as a fine art photographer. His commercial clients have included Agfa, New Line Cinema, Miller Beer, Sony Music, and Warner Bros. He taught Photoshop at Santa Monica College for ten years and has given seminars at the Los Angeles Center for Photography and WPPI. His computer-enhanced images have been featured in a dozen one-man museum shows, scores of photography magazines, including Photo District News, Camera Arts, Rangefinder and Popular Photography, and countless general interest publications, art books, greeting cards, calendars and posters. Bruno Gmünder published “Work,” his first book of nude photography; Los Angeles Times Books published his first collection of landscape images, entitled “Desert Realty” in spring 2002; it was re-released by Chronicle Books five years later.

When he is not working, Freeman travels extensively (fifty countries and counting), plays piano, is fighting a losing battle to learn Mandarin Chinese and dreams of someday writing the Great American Symphony - whenever he gets some spare time. Don’t hold your breath.
