Photographer, humanitarian, entrepreneur, and all around inspiring guy Jeremy Cowart joins the show this week to talk about a successful career as a celebrity and commercial photographer, what inspired him to step into the world of humanitarian work, and his newest endeavor of starting a chain of boutique hotels with a message of purpose. Growing up in Nashville, Jeremy became an unfortunately common statistic of a child that was not operating well within the confines of the traditional educational system. His grades suffered and he really didn't see a future in what others seemed to think was the right career trajectory. He knew he loved art though, and with his parent's advice to maybe study graphic design, he pursued an education in design that would slowly lead him to finally picking up a camera. After walking away from a design firm he had built to pursue photography full-time, Jeremy had a fairly quick rise to what many would call rock star status. He has worked with some of biggest named celebrities in the world, was named by Huffington Post as The Most Influential Photographer on the Internet, recognized by Ad Week as 10 Visual Artist who are changing the way we see the world, and even nominated for an Emmy for best commercial campaign. During our conversation we talk about stepping into your fears and chasing your dreams and goals, the practices he uses to avoid burn out, and the advice he gives to those coming in the current era of photography.
