About Jeremy

Jeremy Wade Shockley (b. 1977) is an award winning photojournalist and self-taught photographer who has been exploring foreign lands and cultures from an early age. He first picked up a camera while serving an architectural internship in the Colonial city of Cuenca, Ecuador. This immediately developed into a passion for documenting the world around him. Jeremy returned to the United States in order to finish a degree in architecture at the University of Colorado. Shortly thereafter, he embarked on a two year Peace Corps assignment in the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. In addition to continuing his work in Latin America and Africa, Jeremy has been documenting the American West for more than a decade. He worked on staff as a photojournalist for the Southern Ute Indian Tribe from 2008-2013. Jeremy has garnered numerous awards from The Society of Professional Journalists, The Native American Journalism Association and the Colorado Press Association for his photography and reporting.
