Outpost founder Jeff Farrell —the Ultimate Creative Freelancer
I'm a veteran designer, art director and photographer who has worked with top gaming, hospitality, technology, manufacturing and non-profit organizations for more than 25 years. My trusted collaborators and I understand that originality, thorough communication and speed are the vital ingredients of successful marketing. Outpost's niche is working directly with corporate clients interested in superior responsiveness while avoiding hefty ad agency markups on creative production.
My unique skill set includes not only marketing design for all media but also studio/location photography, motion graphics and video creation. Almost all of Outpost's work has come through recommendation and referral. This is something I am very proud of and feel is testament to my effectiveness for clients. Here's a small sample of who I've been creating for...
Jeff’s formal training in commercial photography and photo illustration provides a distinct advantage in his approach and implementation of all creative projects. Jeff expanded into graphic design and art direction shortly after graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography in the mid-80s. Since that time, he has worked both independently and in-house as art and creative director for companies such as Ameristar, Harrah’s and Bally Technologies. Jeff has received numerous awards, including Fujifilm's Masterpiece Award and having work featured in the Professional Photographers of America international touring exhibition. Jeff even dabbled in small-town politics for several years with a stint on the city council and then as Mayor of Colfax, California. Now based at his home studio in Portland, Oregon, Jeff works with clients throughout North America.

I don't blog! But I do occasionally post images and blurbs from interesting projects and travels:
You need more than a standard architectural shot of your property or company headquarters to create a lasting impression. A WOWexterior is the signature image essential to help successfully market the character of your organization. Your building's exterior facade, like your logo and branding, is your face to the world.
Jeff has developed this specialty over 25 years photographing casino-resort properties of all types. His process brings together the art of capture and control of light, with a proprietary post production process that results in a distinctive final image with extraordinary impact. Jeff's technique can be even more beneficial to properties challenged by obstructed views or less-than-ideal layouts.
A WOWexterior will provide your property with the memorability it deserves. We can provide a complete estimate based on your specific needs.
Sample Galleries (more than an online portfolio)
Portfolios are often like resumes; overly embellished and not based in reality. The purpose of this collection is to show not only award winning picks but also to share ideas and real work examples that have produced tangible results for clients. A mixture of original images and finished layouts are included.
