Jeremy Swanson has been photographing the Roaring Fork Valley for 20 years, partnering with the Aspen Skiing Company to capture images that tell the story of his mountain community. His work has been published by National Geographic, Outside, Travel & Leisure, and SKI Magazine.  Jeremy's fine art photographs are represented by the Elliot Yeary Gallery in Aspen and he received his MFA from the University of Illinois. When he’s not photographing incredible scenics or athletes on the mountain, his skills are put to work shooting real estate and he recently became a drone pilot to expand his content crushing repertoire. 

In our conversation we talked about the cyclical nature of the housing market and the importance of diversifying and adapting income streams as a freelance creator. How to properly showcase a property using the latest staging, lighting, video, drone, and 3D tour techniques. Lastly, we discussed the need for photographers to have a connection with their subject in order to stand out among the thousands of images consumed online every day.
