Born Ulrich Herzog. Emigrated to Canada in 1952, and picked up the nickname Fritz (later Fred) while working on the ships there. Later he became a medical photographer for the University of British Columbia. On his own time he recorded working-class Vancouver before it was changed by the city's growth. He used Kodachrome slide film (good for projecting images on a screen, but harder to get prints from), so his work remained largely unexhibited and unknown until advances in printing allowed him to get the quality he wanted.
