Freddi's artistic interests span past the realm of music. Freddi discovered a passion for photography in the late 1990's and, since then, has produced an expansive portfolio of work ranging from portraiture to landscape and everything in between. His photography is primarily inspired by his personal travels, an aspect of his life that also greatly inspires his musical compositions.
