JEREMY LOCK / Charleston, South Carolina

An editorial photojournalist, Jeremy "JT" Lock has a passion for immersing himself into and capturing the essence of the world's people, tragedies, celebrations, and everyday realities--empowering viewers to live and feel those moments through his photographs.

A Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force, JT has experience, training, and insight that few photojournalists can claim. He's been in the thick of war battles, shooting with his camera rather than a gun; even earning a Bronze Star. He's documented the realities of life in disease- and poverty-stricken Africa. He's covered diplomatic celebrations, funerals and historic meetings. He is specially trained to shoot from the air and under the sea. He is the sole military photographer to be recognized four times as the best in the business (Military Photographer of the Year, 2003, '05, '06, '08).

“I thrive on working stories, diving into each experience, and living for a moment in a world outside of my norm,” JT said. “It is an honor to be able to share my vision and hopefully foster awareness, understanding, and empathy.”

He also ably translates his broad military experience into expert photography for numerous major media publications worldwide including, National Geographic, Time Magazine, The New York Times and The LA Times. In 2002, he worked in collaboration with 125 of the world’s leading photojournalists on a book entitled A Day In The Life Of The United States Armed Forces. His work also appears in many books including, NYC Life Going On and The War in Iraq. One of his latest projects was working as a New York Life photographer on a documentary for PBS title Slavery and the Making of America.
