Peter Freed is a New York City based cinematic director and videographer.
With a unique ability to create sensory experiences, engage viewers and trigger curiosity, Peter works with clients of all sizes to help tell their stories through visual mediums.
His memorable narrative style infuses wit and humor into visual storytelling, while a beautiful cinematic aesthetic sets his work apart. The results are authentic, story-driven pieces with a beautiful and vibrant visual energy.
During an accomplished career in photography, Peter shot editorials for the New York Times, magazine covers and subjects including George Clooney, Will Smith, Sofia Vergara, Martin Scorsese, Charlize Theron, and several U.S. Presidents, as well as advertisements all over the world for clients such as MasterCard, Sony, Cadillac, CBS, Clear Channel, and the U.S. Army. With such varied commercial experience, it was only natural for him to expand 8 years ago into cinematic video.
Peter’s sensitive hand with actors and real people alike results in strong performances, and spots that are cinematic in scope and intimate in detail.
His many-sided skillset (which includes directing, lighting, shooting and editing) and openness to rolling up his sleeves and doing things lean and mean, allows Peter to work with a variety of budgets and to collaborate with all types of clients. He makes the most of each opportunity, bringing an unwavering passion and energy to each project.
When not filming, Peter is also a highly accomplished skier and sculptor.

Before going solo in 1997, he assisted and learned from renowned photographers Annie Liebovitz, Marc Hispard, Walter Chin, Andrew Eccles, Frank Ockenfels and others, over a Ten-year period.
A unique cultural and educational background – including training at Tisch School of the Arts – formed a passionate, industrious and confident creative spirit. Someone able to engage and interact comfortably with any personality, and in any environment.
“The childhood I spent acting in the theatre and among a whole family of creatives on both my French and American side exposed me to every type of person, and inspired a great freedom of expression. My
career beginnings, as a photojournalist, also taught me invaluable lessons. From how to work solo, be spont
aneous, and handle confrontation, to how to be objective and clearly convey the essence of a situation and its context.”
For Trombert, every assignment is a vital opportunity. To be passionate and powerfully expressive. To get to the best possible outcome for each client. And to make the whole process in between easy-going and enjoyable for everyone involved.
