Alex Freund is a photographer and creative director based in Los Angeles.  A native of Chicago, he moved east to attend Parsons School of Design.

Alex's photography is marked by a seamless mix of a naturalistic gestural sensibility within unnatural scenarios to which he brings a cinematic sense of visual narrative.  He counts among his influences sources as diverse as magic realism, classic fashion photography, street photography, cinema, and gonzo journalism.

His photography career was cemented in 2000 with publication alongside established artists such as Tim Walker, Stephane Sednaoui, Rankin, Lilian Bassman, and Sarah Moon in the survey Fashion Photography Now by Harry N. Abrhahms Books. 

He has since worked with iconic companies and brands such as DVF, Nike, Ogilvy, Laird + Partners, Etienne Aigner, The New York Times Magazine, Interview, and in-house at MAC Cosmetics, where he served as Executive Director of Design, True Religion Brand Jeans, and currently as Vice President of Creative at NYX Professional Makeup / L'Oreal, leading the in-house creative agency.  Additionally, he is co-founder and creative director of the boutique creative agency VVEEKENDS.

He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and children, who he considers much more creative than he is.
