Coming from a artist/design background Jeremy jumped right into photography where he was able to put his artist's eye for composition to use right away. Photography then became a venue for both creativity and humanitarian work.
Being a humanitarian photographer helps to give you perspective on life and shows you what is most important. It can also become a bridge to connect with others from all walks of life.
The higher you go on the pay scale the less control you usually have over a shoot, so finding other outlets to exercise your creativity is critical.
Almost anyone can learn the technical aspects of photography, but it is a lot harder to learn how to be a visionary in your field that allows you to create images that are uniquely your own.
