Detroit’s Jeremy Cranford, who goes by the name “Jermme” for his professional work, is everything you look for in a portrait photographer who uniquely captures human beauty.
Since kicking off his freelance career in 2010, Jermme has become one of the most popular portrait and lifestyle photographers in Detroit. With over 11,000 Instagram followers and thousands of satisfied clients over the years, he’s clearly cemented himself in the industry.
According to his official website, Jermme’s love of capturing images sparks from his fascination with how the human eye is highly susceptible to illusion and trickery. After all, whether illusions happen naturally around us, or are tricks of a camera, you can’t 100% trust everything you see. He uses this concept to his advantage, capturing his subjects in various poses and states of movement and using different lighting techniques to convey a specific story or emotion.
Jermme’s ability to communicate different emotions through his photos is evident in how diverse his photography is. He is best known and most sought after for his gorgeous engagement and wedding photography, which give off a celebratory, vibrant and romantic feeling. Still, he can also easily switch to portraying a powerful, professional or bold feeling in his corporate and lifestyle headshots.
Whether it’s wedding, maternity, professional headshots, or special events, whatever Jermme shoots he always manages through his use of beautiful color saturation, angles and lighting to highlight the natural emotion and beauty of his subjects. His subjects’ unique styles and best physical features always pop, giving the photos both a dramatic and personal feeling at the same time.
Jermme accepts bookings via his official website and in person at his Detroit office located at 227 Iron Street.
