About Pixelchrome Photo Tours
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 had started collaborating with nature photographer Nancy Rotenberg, and was instrumental in 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, recent collaborations have included tours to Mexico, Guatemala and Colombia with co-leaders Nevada Wier, Brenda Tharp, photojournalist Alison Wright and Guatemalan-born Holly Wilmeth.
2013 and 2014 were his busiest years so far with 25 completed international trips and 2015 is proving to be the same with sold out tours for most of the year.
Jeremy used to describe himself as a nature and outdoor photographer, but since necessity is the mother of invention, he has re-branded himself several times over the past decade. 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 passion of photographing people in developing nations.
At least once a year he makes a nature trip and that is usually with a group to photograph wildlife in the wintery wilds of Japan.
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 Travel Photographer of the Year Award 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, & 2015
His work is represented by Getty Images, Masterfile & Spaces Images, and he is an owner of the stock photography content development company, Blend Images.
His camera equipment is kept healthy with regular (often unscheduled) visits to Canon Professional Services which offers great, speedy turnaround service for Gold members.
He uses a ThinkTank Speed Racer Belt Pack camera bag in the field (if you would like to check out their products, click on the banner below for the chance to get a free gift)
When he travels Jeremy always has a Lonely Planet Guide – or a Rough Guide, the best travel guides in the business.
Jeremy is a member of the The North American Nature Photographers Association (NANPA)
He lives with his wife & business partner, Nicole, and their 10-year old son in McKinney Texas, described by Money Magazine’s list of America’s Best Small Cities, as the 2nd Best Place to live in 2012.
