ABOUT / CONTACT

Cold day at the office.

Jeffrey Basinger is a San Diego raised adventurer, purportedly descended from Johnny Appleseed. Much like Appleseed, Jeffrey enjoys traveling the country and has a fondness for fruit. Unlike Appleseed, Jeffrey is an avid photographer, licensed drone operator, certified scuba diver, and master video editor.

He rarely wears a tin pot as a hat.

Basinger is currently a staff multimedia producer with Newsday on Long Island, and lecturer of multimedia journalism. An Eddie Adams Workshop XXVII alumnus, his work has been recognized by the New York Emmys, AP Sports Editors, Edward R. Murrow Awards, Press Club of New York, Headliners, NYPPA, Society of Professional Journalists, Northern Short Course, and Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association, among others.

Prior to Newsday, Basinger spent much time face down in rivers with the non-profit documentary company Freshwaters Illustrated, interned at the Portland Tribune in Oregon and Link TV in San Francisco, and taught English for two years in the coldest part of Japan, Hokkaido.

Basinger received an MFA in creative writing from Oregon State University and a BA in film and digital media from University of California at Santa Cruz.
