Jeremy is one of the few cinematographers with the versatility to shoot films, television, commercials, music videos and documentaries; with shows that have aired on Netflix, BBC, Discovery, National Geographic, History Channel and in festivals around the world. A portfolio this eclectic could perhaps only be borne out of a work background as diverse and involved as his. In addition to spending years as a steadicam operator, Jeremy was an early adopter of digital HD technologies, and long before he shot motion pictures he created candid street photo essays—as early as age 11, in fact. These skills, and his penchant for experimentation and calculated risk-taking, place him in a rare class of do-it-all DPs

His latest project for NBC/SyFy’s epic new series “The Expanse” just wrapped its second season in September 2016. The show debuted to massive critical and fan acclaim in December 2015. The show can now be seen on Amazon Prime in North America as well as Netflix internationally.

In spring 2014, Jeremy completed principal photography on the feature film “October Gale with director Ruba Nadda and starring Patricia Clarkson, Scott Speedman and Tim Roth. In summer 2012 he lensed the television film KILLING LINCOLN, directed by Adrian Moat and produced by Ridley and Tony Scott/Scott Free Productions for the National Geographic Channel (and narrated by Tom Hanks). His feature film credits include MOVING DAY, starring Will Sasso and Victor Garber and directed by Mike Clattenburg, AFGHAN LUKE directed by Mike Clattenburg and starring Nick Stahl (which premiered at TIFF) and the romantic comedy feature film TEXTUALITY directed by Warren Sonoda and starring Jason Lewis and Eric McCormack.

His body of work has garnered him a prestigious ASC win for Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography for KILLING LINCON, a Canadian Screen Award in 2014 for Best Photography in a Documentary program – “WE WERE CHILDREN”,  6 CSC nominations and 3 wins for Best Performance Cinematography for “LOST IN MOTION II”, Best Docu-drama Cinematography for the feature WE WERE CHILDREN with director Tim Wolochatiuk; the Cream Productions docu-drama THE EGYPTIAN JOB with director Nick Green; MANSON, a captivating film about the Manson family for History Channel and A&E directed by Neil Rawles and THE GREAT SPERM RACE directed by Julian Jones. Both MANSON and THE GREAT SPERM RACE also won Jeremy 2 Gemini Award nominations for Best Photography in a Documentary Program or Series.

A believer in the importance of well-rounded life experience, Jeremy also plays drums, travels frequently, values physical fitness and remains active in his community.
