About JF

I do a lot of things. 

But mainly I'm a visual storyteller. I look for beauty in the ordinary and make it special. 

Life is too short not to seek and celebrate beauty in every situation. Filmmaking and photography offer a unique prospective: life shaped by the artist's eye. As a working artist, it’s both a privilege and a responsibility to present each person’s story with the utmost care...because life is delicate. 

I'm a director, photographer, creative director, and a philanthropist. I co-created of the attention grabbing ‘This Built America’ project for AOL & Ford. I was a creative partner in founding cult-favorite menswear brand Buck Mason. I co-founded Through The Woods, a company that serves brands as well as narrative series.

I split time between California and my home state of Texas and enjoy international travel for work on charity-related projects, whenever I come up for air.
