Jerry D. Greer was introduced to the wonders of the wilderness at an early age, and this eye-opening introduction guides his photography and cinematography to this day. Growing up in the Blue Ridge Mountains bestowed in him a desire to protect and conserve their vanishing ecosystems. By choice, he works almost exclusively in the southern Appalachian region and Jerry’s love for his native mountains fuel his environmental and photographic endeavors. He uses his personal connections with wild places, together with a very contemplative eye, to create his beautiful and evocative imagery. His internationally acclaimed and award-winning images have been published in numerous books, calendars, magazines, and conservation and advertising campaigns. Some of his clients include The Conservation Fund, The Pew Charitable Fund, Outdoor Photographer, WNC Magazine, Mountain Bike Magazine, REI, Royal Robbins, LL Bean, The Lyndhurst Foundation, Wild South, Southern Appalachian Forest Coalition and The Southern Environmental Law Center; among others. Jerry is the author and photographer of eight books and one yearly wall calendar. Jerry is also the owner of Mountain Trail Press. He lives in Johnson City, Tennessee with his wife, Abbey and their daughter, Serén.
