Where were you born? Urban Decay - otherwise known as Detroit, MI.

Have you always been creative? When did you you first "catch" the creative bug or realize you loved pursuing artistic interests? I think I have always been creative, I remember making my first slide of a reflection of some fall leaves in a pool of water. It was the 3rd grade with my teachers camera and ever since I have been hooked.

What inspires you most and gets your creative juices flowing? Looking at all forms of art inspires me. Painting, sculpture, photography, a cloud in the sky, my little girls freckles. Being around other artists really also is inspiring. I love to learn!

What is the most challenging aspect of being a photographer? The most challenging aspect is to constantly stay fresh and new - one can never rest on their laurels. You may have done it yesterday, but you you have to create today in the here and now.

Jeremy is a gifted photographer and stylist who spent several years working in creative management for Polo Ralph Lauren in Atlanta, Palm Beach and New York. Several years ago, he and his wife, Karrie, packed up their family and moved back to the Atlanta area where they built a charming farmhouse and re-habbed a historic bank building for a studio. Jeremy is great with children and adults (he is known for his dry sense of humor and patience) and he has a charming studio located in downtown historic Senoia, Georgia. He also works on location.
