Since a very early age Keith Fred has been interested in photography, shooting pictures with his father's box camera until he was able to acquire his own. He also developed a strong interest in architecture and was accepted into an acclaimed architectural program but decided to pursue photography and fine art instead. This architectural interest can be seen in most of his photographs. He received his Fine Art degrees in Filmmaking and Photography from the Philadelphia College of Art, now the University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA.
