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 started 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 in 2011, collaborations have included tours to Mexico, Guatemala and Colombia with co-leaders Nevada Wier, Brenda Tharp, photojournalist Alison Wright and Guatemalan-born Holly Wilmeth.
Since 2011 Jeremy has completed more than 100 international Photo Tours to such destinations as Colombia, the Balkans, Burma, the Stans, India, Sri Lanka, Iceland, Cuba, Iran, Yemen, the Baltic States, Morocco, Sicily, south Africa, Sardinia, Romania, Vietnam, Nepal…the list goes on to include more than 80 countries.
Jeremy used to describe himself as a nature and outdoor photographer, but over the years he has re-branded himself several times. 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 new passion of photographing people in developing nations. At least once or twice a year he plans a nature photo tour which might find his group photographing wildlife in the wintery wilds of Japan, leopards in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, or the world’s tallest dunes in Namibia.
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, UK-based Travel Photographer of the Year Award (TPOTY) every year since he started entering in 2011.
In 2016 he was the Winner of the TPOTY Best Single Image in a Portfolio "MANKIND", and his image was Highly Commended in the One Shot "SHAPED BY LIGHT"
His work is represented by Getty Images, Masterfile & Spaces Images, and he is a former 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, a Rough Guide, or an Eyewitness Travel Guide from DK, the best travel guides in the business.
Jeremy is a member of the The North American Nature Photographers Association (NANPA)
