Today we’d like to introduce you to Jeremiah Campbell.
So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I got into photography really because of my wife. She bought me a camera for my birthday a few years back, and I never picked it up initially (I’m pretty sure I was glued to my PS4). I started shooting while I was out-processing from the military. That time was very stressful because I was accustomed to that lifestyle; I had no idea what I was going to do when I got out. Photographing became my therapy sessions. It gave me a reason to wander around aimlessly. To paint a picture of our duty station, look up Minot, ND. No matter what direction you faced, you can see miles across the fields. During the winter, all the flat lands turned white. Yea it was freezing (-60 degrees on average), but I fell in love with that scenery. It was as if it spoke to me. That’s really what I wanted to capture. After some time, I started getting compliments on my images from my friends as well, so it just made sense to continue shooting when I was out.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Not at all lol. With cell phones as advanced as they are, anyone can take a photo now. Aside from that, I’m an introvert. I say that because I simply don’t get out and network enough. I didn’t want to. I used to think if I shot quality images, I’d get some attention and my name could grow from there. Needless to say, I was mistaken.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I’m a photographer, and I’m known and specialize in. I’m proud of being open to criticism. Any art form is open to scrutiny; it takes a lot of courage to put your work out there to get judged by strangers and your peers. What sets me apart is being able to capture candid moments.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
My wife, parents, and one of my classmates Romeo Harrell. All of them light a spark under me. My wife keeps me humble. She makes sure I stay on path. My parents have always been supportive of what I wanted to do. And Romeo really supports my work.
