- JEREMY COWART BIOGRAFY
- At his core, Jeremy loves to make art. Starting out as a designer, Jeremy really only began taking pictures to bring texture into his design work. Before he knew it, he loved photography (and was getting paid to do it.). So in April of 2005, Jeremy switched over to it full time and he has never looked back. In a relatively short amount of time, Jeremy earned the respect of artists, photographers, and celebrities alike. Now hailed as one of the trailblazers in the industry, Jeremy sees taking a photograph as merely the first step in creating a piece of art.
- But it’s not just about that. It’s about having a natural eye behind the camera. It’s about knowing the light, the location, the subject. It’s about treating each client like a friend. And that’s what Jeremy does best.
- Photography has taken Jeremy to six continents. Jeremy’s skills behind the camera have allowed him to work with many clients in the entertainment industry, such as Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Sting, Clive Owen, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Imogen Heap, Courtney Cox, and Ryan Seacrest, just to name a few. He also traveled with Britney Spears in 2009 as her photographer and documented seventeen countries with the Passion World Tour in 2008. From all his travels, Jeremy has released 3 Photography books, “Hope in the Dark”, “The Poor Will Be Glad” and “Awakening”.
- It’s fair to say that his photography career has been diverse. No doubt about that. But for him, it’s not about being famous or being known or getting awards. It’s about doing everything he can and using any platform he has to make a difference.
