Around the World in 80 Photographs
We will look at a collection of up to 80 images that are either Jeremy's favorites or for which he has become known for Audience participation is encouraged.
As the owner of Pixelchrome, Inc Jeremy has enjoyed a roller coaster ride pursuing the American Dream. Since his early days as a graphic designer, his dream was to become a stock photographer. Riding the wave of the internet revolution in the mid 90s, he got involved with Getty Images and went on to build a successful business traveling the world and taking stock pictures. By 2005, he started setting up frequent international trips to Italy and to Mexico. He went on to lead trips to Guatemala and Costa Rica.
As the developer of the Dreamteam photo tour concept in 2011, collaborations have included tours to Mexico, Guatemala and Colombia with co-leaders Nevada Wier, Brenda Tharp, photojournalist Alison Wright and Guatemalan-born Holly Wilmeth. Since 2011 Jeremy has completed more than 100 international Photo Tours to such destinations as Colombia, the Balkans, Burma, the Stans, India, Sri Lanka, Iceland, Cuba, Iran, Yemen, the Baltic States, Morocco, Sicily, south Africa, Sardinia, Romania, Vietnam, Nepal…the list goes on to include more than 80 countries.
Jeremy used to describe himself as a nature and outdoor photographer, but over the years he has re-branded himself several times. He has travelled widely, photographing many of the world’s most important city skylines. In 2006 he became part-owner of a Lifestyle Stock Photography Company, Blend Images, and now he is indulging his new passion of photographing people in developing nations. At least once or twice a year he plans a nature photo tour which might find his group photographing wildlife in the wintery wilds of Japan, leopards in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, or the world’s tallest dunes in Namibia.
Jeremy’s photos have appeared in print all over the world. He has received numerous international awards in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition, and he was overall winner of the 2002 Nature’s Best International Photography Awards. His images have been included in exhibitions at the Smithsonian in Washington DC, the Dallas Museum of Natural History, and the Natural History Museum in London.
Jeremy's images have also been selected in the final judging stage for the prestigious, UK-based Travel Photographer of the Year Award (TPOTY) every year since 2011. In 2016 he was the Winner of the TPOTY Best Single Image in a Portfolio "MANKIND", and his image was Highly Commended in the One Shot "SHAPED BY LIGHT"
