Who is Jeremy?
I found a love of photography and nature by chance when I agreed to go on a camping trip with a friend. We really no idea what we were doing or getting ourselves into.
I was completely lost in the fascination and freedom of nature, the overwhelming sense of awe, and can recall experiences from this first trip vividly even to this day.
But I came home disappointed my photos from a point and shoot camera didn’t represent the environment, feelings or experiences we had.
This disconnect and the experience of discovery is what drives and inspires me to go further, deeper and more meaningfully into wild places today.
I’ve a lot of money, time and effort learning how to combine my passions for photography, hiking and bush camping with an understanding of nature to further my skills, knowledge and vision with every adventure.
What began as something superficial, trying to get nice photos to remember and share, is now a deeply personal and important part of my life.
Hiking and photography can be difficult, tiring and frustrating. They can also be transformative, introspective and inspirational.
My growing appreciation, understanding and connection with nature through photography has become a grounding and teaching force in my life that I want to pass onto others, and to my children.
I want to make these experiences possible for others who are desperately missing this type of grounding and empowering force in their lives.
To change your perspective and appreciation of the world around you, and your place in it.
Find a true love of photography, expression and nature so you too can bring home unique, personal experiences from places no one else has been, and be inspired by these for the rest of your life.
Don’t miss your moment …
