Jerimiah Smith is a freelance photographer based out of central Alabama. He was born and raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains in Northern California up until he was 19 and made the leap to Chicago shortly before his 20th birthday.
Taking motorcycle and skateboard trips across the country inspired him to shoot photos of these special moments that not a lot of the general public ever got to see. For 10 years he lived in Chicago, worked 40 hours a week to survive and enjoyed traveling with his best friends on old Harley's. Shooting film from a Canon EOS 1N was not his first choice but it was cheap and the only camera he really ever had experience with.
In June of 2015 Jerimiah and his long time girlfriend sold everything they owned and moved into a vintage camper trailer. With no time frame or real destination in mind they set out to see america for as long as they could taking two lane roads and hoping for a new place to call home.
But the day they left he had one last stop in that city he called home, Central Camera. He pulled the trigger and decided to get his first ever digital camera. A Canon 50D with a 50mm 1.8. Him and Stefanie spent almost two years traveling the country, working odd jobs and seeing friends across 40 plus states.
In October of 2017 Jerimiah, Stef and their dog Hank found themselves backing up their camper one last time. They landed in a small town 20 miles south of Birmingham Alabama. Jerimiah enjoy's their 3 acres of land, riding dirt bikes, traveling on old bikes and shooting people around his home and downtown Birmingham.
He's since upgraded his camera setup to a Canon 5D but still uses his trusty "Nifty 50" for almost 90% of his work. Jerimiah enjoy's shooting Custom Harley's for Dice Magazine and is currently working on publishing his very own coffee table book.
