“Citizen of the world” comes to mind when one hears the name Jeremy Woodhouse. His birth in Nigeria, rearing in Pakistan and Argentina, followed by a stint as a graphic designer in South Africa and the United Kingdom before his incarnation into a full-time professional photographer based in the United States give this unique individual an international perspective few can match. Today, the wanderlust continues as he and his camera pursue assignments in scores of countries across the globe.
Known for his panoramic images of urban skylines, the adaptable shooter is equally at ease in the bush. It was in South Africa thatJeremy originally developed his passion for wildlife and environmental photography. When he’s not shooting some exotic cityscape the intrepid traveler might be photographing a herd of gregarious elephants at a Botswanan water hole, snapping timid jackrabbits in arid South Texas or capturing dramatic panoramas of Australia’s Ayer’s Rock. His work, consistently praised for its artistic composition, has earned recognition internationally through venues such as the BBC/British Gas Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition and photography exhibitions at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. and London’s Natural History Museum.
When quizzed on what’s needed for successful shooting in the wild, a smiling Jeremy responds, “Planning, knowledge of the quarry, quick reactions and a whole lot of luck.”
On the ICF philosophy:
“I think it is a very ambitious plan. Hopefully, the results of this first contest will demonstrate to landowners the importance of good stewardship of their properties.”
