He works with fash­ion clients like Mr. Porter, Match­es­Fash­ion and Kar­do, how­ev­er he likes ven­ture out onto dif­fer­ent styles of shoot­ing oth­er than fash­ion. Cur­rent­ly Jere­my is work­ing on a per­son­al project that’s allow­ing him to dive into the world of bal­let.

Being born and raised in NY, Jere­my has many places to talk about. So many places to shoot, but even more places to eat! His favorite Jamaican restau­rant called VEE’S for exam­ple, which is locat­ed at 967 Nos­trand Avenue, Brook­lyn.

Which crazy mem­o­ry will for­ev­er be con­nect­ed to your favorite district?

I was born and raised in Brook­lyn, NY. Grow­ing up I rarely saw changes in neigh­bor­hoods and com­mu­ni­ties. It’s not until recent years I start­ed notic­ing dra­mat­ic changes all over the city. Its crazy how change can hap­pen so quick­ly and its fun­ny how the areas you would avoid like a plague have become a safe haven for many newcomers.

How do you spend a Sun­day in your district?

Usu­al­ly around this time of year on Sunday’s, after I attend my reli­gious func­tion, I bike over to Brook­lyn Bridge Park and just vibe out. A blan­ket, pen, paper and McDonald’s apple pie sets the mood for me honestly. 

Why does your job per­fect­ly match your city?

Every­thing you need is here. Lit­er­al­ly every­thing. The per­fect back­drops. The peo­ple. Style. Every­thing.

Where do you get inspired?
If I’m not on the inter­net look­ing for inspi­ra­tion or trav­el­ing in search for inspi­ra­tion, I’m prob­a­bly peo­ple watch­ing in Down­town Brook­lyn, Williams­burg or Soho.

The best place to peo­ple watch is…

Peo­ple watch­ing is one of my favorite thing — to Down­town Brook­lyn would be my favorite. 

The nicest vin­tage clothes you can find at…

Def­i­nite­ly down­town Brook­lyn. There are vin­tage and thrift shops on every block. I have a bud­dy named Oui­gi who owns a store called The Brook­lyn Cir­cus (@Thebkcircus) on 150 Nevins St. It’s a mix­ture of vin­tage gar­ments as well as mod­ern day pieces. It’s well worth the vis­it; it also smells nice.

My urban oasis is…

My urban oasis would be the 1 Hotel at Brook­lyn Bridge locat­ed in Dum­bo. It has every­thing you need for a sol­id sum­mer day. It has a great rooftop bar that over­sees a beau­ti­ful view of the city. A cozy cof­fee shop with a mono­chro­mat­ic inte­ri­or. Three dope bars you want a drink in. A lounged area with occa­sion­al live music from NYC locals. Per­fect for a quick shoot.

When you have to work on your lap­top best go to…

When it’s time to pop out the com­put­er the best place to be would have to be at Dap­per Stu­dios (@DapperStudios). It’s been some time since I’ve been there due to an over­load of work. But that’s nor­mal­ly a place where cre­ative indi­vid­u­als go to get work done. 

The most pho­to­genic place of the city is…

The most pho­to­genic place of the city is Dum­bo. It’s a tourist attrac­tion. 300k vis­i­tors a week. From Wed­dings, engage­ments, grad­u­a­tions to fash­ion edi­to­ri­als. Every­thing is shot there because it’s so cin­e­mat­ic and photogenic.
