Jeremy Cowart loves the creative process. From painting to photography, marketing campaigns and more, it’s the act of creating something from nothing that fuels his passion. Jeremy got his start as a painter, then started his own graphic design company and eventually switched over to photography full-time. He has photographed celebrities (Taylor Swift, Tim Tebow), created the social network/community OKDOTHIS, and founded Help Portrait, a worldwide movement of photographers using their time, equipment, and expertise to give back to those less fortunate. Jeremy played a pivotal role in St. Thomas Health’s award-winning “Nothing Shall Be Impossible” marketing campaign, shooting the photos used in the multimedia campaign. Most recently, Jeremy announced his plans for The Purpose Hotel, an out-of-the-box concept for the hospitality industry—a hotel for the socially conscious where a night’s stay can help to change the world.
