For this Weekly Fourcast, we caught up with Salt Lake City-based photographer Jeremiah Watt. Jeremiah is an experiential photographer who focuses on capturing the beauty of human experience through climbing, skiing, fly-fishing, and beyond. Originally hailing from the mountains of Wyoming, Jeremiah spent years living in his van, chasing hard rock climbs and deep snow before realizing he wanted to take photos. He went back to school to pursue an MFA in photography, but he was nearly kicked out of the program for “a difference of opinion around fine art, and academia in general.”
“An in-depth internal conversation concerning my personal involvement with photography, a shift in my mental approach to politics, and restructuring my expectations allowed me to both stay in the program and up my photographic game,” he says.
“The chaos of that experience and my ability to move through it has been a solid foundation in everything from projecting on the rock to staying motivated behind the lens.”
Though he now has a full-time homebase in Utah, Jeremiah spends much of the year traveling the world, often with his family, focused on capturing authentic experiences through the lens of life outdoors.
