Jeremy Woodhouse is an outdoor photographer based in Dallas, Texas but he spends much of each year on the road, photographing landscapes, cityscapes and wildlife. Born in Nigeria, Jeremy grew up in Pakistan and Argentina, and prior to immigrating to the United States in 1991, he lived in South Africa where he developed his passion for wildlife and nature photography. Jeremy had worked as a free-lance graphic designer in the UK, South Africa, and the US before he began living his dream of being a full-time professional photographer. Whether he's photographing a herd of elephants at a waterhole in Botswana, or capturing the last light as it falls on a South American city skyline, Jeremy brings his designer's eye to the composition and creation of all his images.
