Jeremy Merriam's early artistic influences stem from watching Bob Ross, Saturday morning cartoons, comic books, and his fascination drawing dinosaurs. It was years later that he decided to further shape his artistic side by becoming a professional photographer.

His interest in photography has been a constant evolution, and is a medium that continues to surprise him. He developed a strong interest in food and food related photography inspired by his love of cooking, which led Jeremy to explore food as a subject.

Part of Jeremy's allure for food photography includes the chefs who create the amazing cuisine, and the insights in what inspires food lovers to create delicious and visually stunning plates. Jeremy's artistic expression is derived through the chef's passion for food.

Jeremy also loves being in nature, traveling to secluded areas, meeting new people, and of course experiencing incredible foods. In the future he plans to build an organic and biodynamic farm to help sustain and enrich the community.
