Ed Freeman’s early career was in the music industry; he
performed as a folk guitarist and classical lutenist, worked
as a road manager on the last Beatles’ tour, played guitar
on dozens of pop recordings, wrote orchestral
arrangements for artists including Carly Simon and Cher,
produced and arranged over two dozen albums,
including Don McLean’s American Pie.
After a mid-life career change, he now creates
commercial and fine art photographs that have been
featured in hundreds of publications. Two books of his
computer-enhanced images have been published. His
architectural series - Desert Realty and Urban Realty -
have been the subject of touring museums shows. Prints of
his fine art images are in the permanent collections of
several American museums and private collections world-wide.
These days Freeman travels the world taking pictures,
teaches Photoshop, still plays piano, is fighting a losing
battle to learn Mandarin Chinese and swears mightily that
he will write the Great American Symphony one day -
whenever he gets some spare time.
Don’t hold your breath.
