Trek Untold-Episode 93: Focus on Photographer Jeffery Newbury

Jeffery Newbury is a photographer with his lens pointed in the direction of the Star Trek universe and A-list celebrities, but much like the sub-title of this podcast, his career goes far beyond the stars!

We learn about where Jeffery grew up and his journey from a small dairy farm in Wisconsin to Alaska and then eventually Hollywood, how he discovered photography (with a surprising Star Trek connection), and the way he found himself taking pictures of some amazing celebs for books and magazines. Jeffrey tells us stories about Tupac, Limp Bizkit, Bill Gates, Metallica, and of course, all the info about his Star Trek photos and the connections he made with those cast members, along with stories about Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner, Gates McFadden, Nichelle Nichols, Marina Sirtis, Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner and more!

Jeffery discusses his tricks and tools of the trade and explains how he melded his fine arts skills into his commercial career to “make art for clients,” why he is selling his work as NFTs and what he thinks about the future of Non-Fungible Tokens, advice for aspiring professional photographers and the things he is still learning about photography today.

For you video viewers, please note that the video gets very bad as we were chatting since we had some connection problems, so the audio will be fine, but the video turns into a stop motion video.
