Green Beret Racing

Photos from this series for Green Beret Racing were used to raise awareness of the mental distress faced by Special Operations Forces soldiers. “PTSD is so commonplace, the chance that a member of Special Operations Forces will experience it is almost a given. Suicide rates among the Special Operations community are almost twice the military average.”

Flashes of Hope

Fred regularly works with Flashes of Hope to create free uplifting portraits to honor the unique life and memories of children with life-threatening illnesses at Camp Sunshine.
