Jeremy Koreski (Featured)
I've been following Jeremy's work for years. Anybody that is familiar with it can understand he has done extraordinarily well. With photography that takes him all over the world it's difficult to not envy his lifestyle or talent as an artist. To be honest I can't remember how I initially reached out to Jer but probably "slid him a DM" a few years ago about going flying. It's important to keep in mind that the guy is in an aircraft more than some pilots, and opportunities for him aren't few or far between. He must have responded because we linked up for a beer. I laugh when I think back to the ideas and opinions I had at the time and cringe at how he received them. But, over the last few years Jer has humbly answered all my questions and tolerated my kook-esque rapid fire ideas. And, to my recollection, has always bought the beers. He's the type of guy that you forget is wildly successful until you see him in the airport on a giant Canon advertisement. Earlier this year Jer and I got some time to go flying. He contributed photos from that morning flight to a show I put together last February called, "From Above". The event also featured Christian Coxen, TJ Watt, Graeme Owsianski, and Nick Temos (myself). Everybody got drunk and we ended up having a pretty rad closing party and spontaneous charity auction. It's a testament to Jeremy's candour and attitude that he even initially humoured the time and ideas of someone who would likely benefit him very little. The spirit of what I'm getting at isn't to share the grovelling thoughts of a fan; it's to point out that Jeremy is a genuinely good dude who is - as Jack Lemmon put it - willing to, "send the elevator back down.". It's rare to find that quality in a person amongst the interesting culture of photographers in British Columbia. We're both working on a few ideas right now that I look forward to making happen and sharing. So, until then, scroll down to check out some of his work.
