The Art of Digital Photography: The Inspirational Series with Jeremy Cowart By Jeremy Cowart and Mia McCormick

48 min

Starting at the beginning we learn how Jeremy got started as a photographer, and how that opened doors for experiencing life in all new ways, and how Jeremy’s love for collaboration with fellow artists of all types pushes his work in new directions. Over the course of their chat Mia and Jeremy touch on the importance of finding ways to exercise your creativity beyond work, why it is crucial to develop your own unique vision that helps your work stand out from the crowd, and so much more!

Video transcripts available with a subscription.

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.
