“I had the pleasure of working with Jeremy on season 9 of Gold Rush. Right from the start we had an excellent chemistry. He is a very strong and proficient camera operator with impressive visuals and storytelling skills. I always knew he’d have his camera up and pointing in the right place. I was amazed how he never lost his smile while working on set through difficult circumstances and hard deadlines. His enthusiasm, positive energy and drive to succeed are inspiring. He’s the kind of guy you want on your crew.”
“I’ve worked with Jeremy over three seasons of Discovery Channel’s Gold Rush and his commitment to filmmaking is unmatched. He has a special ability to see story through the lens of a camera. Jeremy will always go above and beyond to get the shot that’s needed. He’s great to have on set, excellent with actors and contributors, and most importantly dedicated to story. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to any production.”
