Jeremy is a freelance cinematographer and also works professionally in the lighting department for IATSE Local 52. Jeremy has shot thesis films, music videos, commercial projects, and more. He is a graduate of NYU Tisch Film and TV Production and has worked on a considerable number of productions from small student thesis films to major scale features and TV shows, in positions ranging from gaffer to DIT to underwater electrician. Because of his education and professional experience, Jeremy understands the differences between large and small scale productions, and knows how to work efficiently in both. Jeremy gravitates heavily toward ideas and stories that combine his experience with lighting and cinematography with his love of nature, and wild, remote, and even underwater places.
When he's not on set, Jeremy spends time scuba diving and working on improving technical diving skills, taking any opportunity to travel or plan backpacking trips, playing the backlog of video games he's accumulated, and consuming italian food.
From his experience crafting many different visual looks across different projects, Jeremy fully believes that the best visuals start with the creative decisions, informed by the story and emotion in the script. Most importantly, good visuals start with production design and the right location. The specific tools used are dependant on the logistics and decided upon workflow of the production. Every tool has it's place, and there is no one right answer for everything.
