On location around the world or in his own backyard, Jed Share has been creating engaging, beautiful, and exceptional imagery for over 25 years. His creative, collaborative style delivers results that often exceed his clients expectations, be it for a headshot portrait, a video profile, or creative, functional photography.
Jed’s passion for the work fuels a mindful approach to go the extra mile, explore fresh points of view and for all involved to enjoy the process along the way.
Here’s what a few of his clients have had to say:
Project: Portraits for annual report & website | 2011
“Wow. What can I say. Jed brings so much to the table as a photographer; experience, talent, creativity, sensitivity, collaboration…the list goes on and on.
The last project I worked on with Jed was a truly challenging situation. I asked him to capture images that I did not know if they were possible to get. He delivered in a big way. The photos are beautiful portraits that inspire, tell a great story and bring integrity to their subjects. Jed is a photographer that will deliver the photo you need and make it art.”
Creative Director / Principal, Riverbed Design
Sustainability Director at AIGA Seattle
Project: Corporate Portraits for Website re-design, Annual Report, and Social Media | 2010
“I really can’t say enough about the positive experience of working with Jed Share as a creative partner, coming up with a truly collaborative approach, amazing images and a thoroughly superlative experience.”
Project: Corporate Portraits for Marketing, Website, and Social Media | 2009 & 2010
“Firsthand hired Jed Share to shoot photos for our company web site and promotional materials. We are a technology company, but our real focus and passion is about making people’s lives better through the services we provide. It was very important to us that we have images that conveyed this human focus, so we chose to work with Jed for his technical and creative expertise. Jed helped us define the goals of the project and develop an aesthetic approach that fit our message while staying true to our company’s personality.
He was highly professional working with our talent during the photo shoot, many of whom were children, and was able to put them at ease to capture the images we needed. Jed’s real talents showed in his post production work, pulling the best images out of the hundreds we shot, and bringing those images to life. Jed brings more than just great eye and steady hand behind the camera, the body of his work demonstrates a real commitment to the art of photography that is impressive and a pleasure to work with.
I would give Jed my highest recommendation.”

Howard Rose, President, Firsthand Technologies
Hired Jed as Photographer in 2009, again as Photographer/Videographer in 2010
Project: Photography for website, Short Videos for branding and marketing
Working with Jed was nothing short of an incredible experience. My personality really comes through in the videos and photos that Jed took for my business, and he really made me look like the pro that I want my clients to see. He doesn’t just capture the image – somehow he captures the magic or essence of the moment or person he is photographing. He really has a special, rare talent.
Now that I have gone through the process and have the final product I don’t know how I could afford not to hire Jed. I feel like the photos and videos he created have put my business in a whole different ballpark from my competition.
The best part is that I feel I have a new friend and colleague helping me develop my brand. I would recommend checking out his blog and giving him a call. Thanks a million Jed!
Brian Frankowski, Owner, Debris Free Seattle
Hired Jed as Photographer/Videographer in 2010
“Of the many photographers I have hired over the years, Jed Share stands out above the rest. Not only is Jed a kind and caring human being, but an incredibly talented and expressive artist as well. Jed doesn’t just capture a moment, he infuses the scene with his creative energy and interprets it with a deep understanding of the subject, and respect for the Art Director’s vision.
Jed is a professional who will gladly give you exactly what you ask for, but I recommend giving him a little creative freedom to explore his art and interpret the subject in ways that may exceed your vision. At least that has been my experience on more than one occasion, and Jed’s work has blown me away every time.
I look forward to working with Jed again, and I strongly recommend him to all my peers.” March 23, 2009

Project: Editorial portraits on location at a high technology research facility
“I had the pleasure of working with Jed when he was hired by a magazine to shoot images of one of our researchers and technologies. He’s professional and talented, and I appreciated his ability to communicate his vision for each shot. The results were fantastic.” April 29, 2009
Andrea Turner, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
“Of all the photographers that I have worked with over the years, I’d have to say that Jed Share is by far the most passionate and creatively driven; always striving to produce images that are fresh and unique, and always a pleasure to work with. Shooting images for annual reports, particularly in the financial sector in Japan, can be challenging. Yet with Jed’s understanding of light and motion in still images, we succeeded in creating a work of art that not only presented the company as dynamic and progressive, but honored its respected trust and prestige within the industry. I have no hesitation in recommending Jed Share.”
