It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see – Henry David Thoreau
As a guy who just loves to be out in the big wide world taking pictures, I have never really thought much about my "vision". I am driven by several things which include the desire to explore new places, the photographic process and most of all, color!
Having compiled a bunch of testimonials that clients had written for me one stood out because it really hit the nail on the head – as far as my "vision" was concerned. I am hoping that in sharing it with you here you will understand what this photo business is all about…
"One only has to look at Jeremy’s photographs to get an impression of the type of trips he runs, and the photo opportunities that they present. His more recent bias has been his terrific portraiture and cultural immersion, offering the chance to experience and photograph people in their places. He has an incredible ability to see images from a distance, and somehow make them happen, whether it be in someone’s home, from a hidden balcony, the top of a building, or inside an african hut. If it is possible, Jeremy will work it! He is equally at home with a landscape, and architecture, and will seek out the best light and time of day for locations, with enthusiasm and unmatched energy. His trips are also great fun, and most of the people that I’ve met on the trips that I’ve done have been repeat clients, which speaks for itself.
If you like travelling in small groups to amazing places with like minded people who are as passionate as you about taking photos, then Pixelchrome Photo Tours are to be considered. I was recommended to Jeremy by another professional photographer, and have now had the experience of 4 fabulous trips with him and his co-leaders, and am in the process of booking more. Jeremy also offers scouting trips which are a fantastic way of joining a small group, be involved in the process of scouting, which is itself fun, educational and spontaneous. I’ve done a couple of these, both in Sicily, which were excellent, and will be looking out to see where he is going next.
If you prefer a more planned approach, then there is comfort in the fact that his trips have in fact been previously scouted and carefully planned. There’s still room for spontaneity though, if the light changes or if opportunity arises. The co-leaders that I have met have been fantastic, enthusiastic, great fun, and helpful…Emphasis of trips has been on maximising shooting time, but there has been opportunity for image review, some post processing, and a glass of wine. In fact, one of the extensions to a trip in Sicily was to Umbria, with optional cooking classes… true cultural immersion!
Every time there is a new newsletter, different and exotic locations or cultural events appear for the next year. I just wish there was more room in my diary!
I highly recommend Jeremy as a professional, interested, fun and enthusiastic leader, who works alongside photographers and guides who share his passion and provide local knowledge and language" – Chris R, Melbourne, Australia
