I'm Gavin Freeborn

Irish portrait and documentary photographer based in London, working across artistic and commerical projects internationally.

I also specialise in arts education marketing and communications, as well as teaching the art of networking across University of the Arts London (UAL) and other institutions. 

My main ongoing artistic project is The Freeborn Exchange which I have made in over 25 countries since November 2011.

I exchange photography and social media marketing for objects, stories, hospitality and more.

In March 2016 I presented a TEDx talk about The Freeborn Exchange.

My commercial work involves portraiture and documentary across various sectors from charity to press.
