From a rural farm in America’s hinterland to San Francisco, from a Masters in Fine Art Photography to the expansive world of commercial art and advertising, Jeffery has innovated constantly along the way.  In a career of numerous projects shooting celebrities, fashion, portraiture, objects, narratives for editorial and brand assignments, Jeffery’s imagination and varied experimental technical approaches has produced a body of work unmatched by many.

In a brilliant and steadfast career, one central mantra has fueled Jeffery along the way:  “You have to be able to make a great photograph of anything, at any time, anywhere.”  This core value stands whether shooting with film, digital capture, the iPhone, by collaborating intensely with the individuals and talent who are the subjects of his photos, with hands in chemicals in the darkroom,  directing the lab, doing post on the computer and all other manner of ways to make the great photograph that are all a part of Jeffery’s quiver of tools.  

Ensconced in his beautiful home surrounded by thousands of Saguaro cactus, Jeffery has been dedicated of late to meticulously going through volumes of his past film shoots - so many contact sheets that were never looked at twice, so many fascinating images to get reacquainted with, edit, bring out in to the light of day.  Now many of these images are out in the world again in current, major exhibitions such as “Wake Me When I’m Free” on the art and life of Tupac Shakur.  Which has brought Jeffery and me full circle to connect with the projects that will holistically gain by his extraordinary vision and talent.
