Real People

Creative Compound loves incorporating real people rather than models in branded photography. As an award-winning White House photojournalist, founder Jeffrey Markowitz brings a signature style to Creative Compound’s brand lifestyle photography that takes brands out into the real world and provides authentic everyday life photos that can’t be replicated or faked.

Everyday Life Photography, Real Human Moments

Jeffrey began his career as a professional photojournalist at the age of 22 working at The Washington Post and continuing for years after at the Associated Press, Time Magazine, and Newsweek. By 27, he had photographed 5 U.S. Presidents and hundreds of world leaders. His photos have been on the cover of Newsweek and Time Magazine 10 times, winning Time’s prestigious Photo of the Year award twice. He has captured iconic images of celebrities, actors, and musicians including Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Robert Redford, Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, U2, Bob Dylan, and Red Hot Chili Peppers among many more. Jeffrey and Creative Compound capture real human moments that engage and inspire with vivid authenticity.
