Finally, after months of keeping things under wraps, I can finally announce the opening of my new studio gallery, J.G. Photography Fine Art Photography. Located in the heart of Greenport Village, the new place will provide a great platform for me to display work and meet with clients. I’ve admired 102 South St, Greenport for a few years now, so when the opportunity to rent it became available, I had to take it. Together with my wife Ashley (http://www.ashleyoneilevents.com/), we transformed a real estate office into her office and my studio gallery.
In years past, I have displayed my work at many fine establishments across the North Fork, including galleries, shops, wineries, and restaurants. While it was a great experience, I didn’t get a lot of control over how my art is displayed. The new place features led track lighting and color-neutral walls that provide optimal viewing conditions. In the future, I hope to offer photography lectures, post-processing classes, and much more.
An official Grand Opening will be announced in the coming days, but our doors are open and we are welcoming the public. Come by check out the art and grab some grub at our next door neighbor, First And South. I hope you join me on this next chapter of my career by showing your support and spreading the word (or buy a print for your home or office). Stay tuned for upcoming announcements by signing up for my www.jeremygarretson.com/mailinglist.
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 used for Discover Long Island, CNN, 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.
If you wish to inquire about a print or a service I offer, please go to the contact page or swing by the gallery. I look forward to hearing from you.
