My name is Jeremy Garretson and I am a professional photographer living on the East end of Long Island. My main passion is fine art landscape photography, but I shoot a variety of other subjects such as real estate and architecture, portraiture, events, and photojournalism.
I started shooting in 2005 when I purchased my first SLR while attending Stony Brook University. My early photography classes allowed me to shoot film and process it in the darkroom. This enabled me to learn the core fundamentals of photography before diving into a digital world.
My first focus in photography was Urban Exploring (URBEX) which entailed entering into some of our region's most interesting abandoned hospitals, factories, mansions, and asylums. This is where I learned to express my artistic vision and where the excitement of capturing the best photo possible took hold.
Living on the eastern waters of Long Island has allowed me to explore landscape photography with a particular focus on the relationship between light and the natural environment. Over the years I have developed my own style of imagery that can be seen throughout a lot of my work. I have been lucky enough to exhibit my work at The Fiedler Gallery, North Fork Art Collective, First & South, Borghese Vineyards, Shuru WInery, East End Seaport Museum, Clovis Point Winery and many other establishments across Long Island.
In January 2019, my wife and I opened J. Garretson Fine Art Photography at 102 South St, Greenport. The new location is full of beautiful prints from my travels as well as Long Island. Not only is it a place for me to display my work, but its also where I will working (from).
While my love for Long Island will never fade, I've had the opportunity to photograph many other locations. In the last year, I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to the Faroe Islands, California, Utah, and Maine. I am currently planning trips to Washington, Colorado, and Montana.
My photographs have been featured in Discover Long Island, Down East Magazine, CNN, Sag Harbor Express, the Suffolk Times, the North Forker, Southold Local, Wine Press, Wall Street Journal, Homes of the North Fork and Acres Magazine, as well as in advertisements.
Every year I make an effort to give back to the community. I've donated fine art prints to charitable events such as the Orient Historical Society Summer Benefit, Eastern Long Island Hospital Gala, and Land & Sea Gala.
