Jeffery Jay Luhn began writing professionally as a photojournalist for United Press International on assignments in Asia and Europe. His humorous first-person style, supported by photography, invites readers to enjoy a unique perspective on travel, social conditions, and events. His travel and lifestyle work has been published in Life, Travel and Leisure, Wired, and many in-flight magazines.

Jeffery also writes product copy, reviews, features, short stories and novels.

Jeffery began his photo career at a newspaper in Hayward, CA at age 17 while attending the Laney College Photo program. After several years in the field Jeffery returned to school and graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography with Bachelors degrees in Commercial Photography and Photographic Illustration.

Following college Jeffery signed on with United Press International photographing wars, earthquakes and other hard breaking news. After surviving a stabbing, a small plane crash, snipers, cholera epidemics, and police detentions in Spain, Philippines and Indonesia, he decided to limit his international assignments to commercial and (safe) editorial work. Jeffery founded Visioneering Studio in San Francisco and maintained additional locations in New York and Hong Kong.

Jeffery has worked in 25 countries for dozens of Fortune 500 corporations. He has taught at California College of the Arts in Oakland, Academy of Art in San Francisco, Cabrillo College in Aptos, CA and Chabot College in Hayward, CA.
