About John Freud

John Freud is retired, living in Texas.  He began his photographic journey in fits and starts, but became serious about it in January, 2016, becoming a member of the Arcanium (a learning site) shortly thereafter and given the name "The Greenhorn".

He best describes himself to now be "a competent photography "opsimath" and no longer a "Greenhorn".  I dedicate this description to my initial Master and coach, Beau Rogers, my current master, Ron Clifford, and my fellow student cohorts.  I have and continue to learn through them.


My initial passion came from visits to Trey Ratcliff images emphasizing HDR.  Since that time in the beginning of 2017, I spent a lot of time honing my landscape images. I initially began this photography journey as a retirement hobby; then it became a quest; and, now it is a passion.  In addition to my travels, I am compiling an image chronology of the preserved lands in the Hill Country of Texas. This will be used in a book detailing the various efforts to accomplish this effort in hopes of motivating others to continue the pursuit.

I love images when viewed, entice the viewer into the scene in a passionate manner. They want to be there, meet the person, see the view, or feel the emotion - or all the above.
