About

A story in a single image. That's what I stryve for and what keeps me excited to grow as a photographer.

Self Portrait - Jeremy Shockley 2016

 

I've been shooting since the days of film. My first camera was a Vivitar gifted to me by my high school girlfriend as a birthday present. I had no idea about exposure metering, lens hoods, or any other technical aspect of photography. The little green dot in the view finder and manual focus was enough to make some great images. Under the influence or professional photographers such as Margret Malandruccolo, I learned about slide film and cross processing negatives for color shifted prints. That process heavily influences how I treat color in digital photography. 

True moments of creative inspiration can be found in most any photographic circumstance. I still use manual focus lenses to take the extra breaths to find the moment unfolding in front of the camera.  Conceptual photography in the studio is deliberate and controlled which I love. The challenge of capturing an event, wedding, or spontaneous genuine moment outside of the studio equally drives my creative passion. Let's work together and co-create some great photographs.
