My name is Donavan Freberg and I’m a Los Angeles based portrait photographer specializing in personality driven headshots for working actors, models and musicians. I have over 20 years shooting experience and recently had my work published on the cover of the July 2012 issue of "LA Centric" magazine. In addition to the cover, I also had a six page spread that featured my work, inside the issue.
I shot my first picture in the summer of 1977, the same year that two of my favorite movies came out, Star Wars and Annie Hall.
I was six, and the camera was the Polaroid SX-70.
I can still remember the soft brown leather that smelled like an old wallet and the shiny round shutter release button that was the color of a freshly washed fire engine. I’ll never forget that camera and the way it felt to watch the little picture develop before my eyes. It was my first taste of magic.
