Meet Jeremiah Hull

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jeremiah Hull.

Jeremiah, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Growing up in Cleveland, Ohio I always had a passion for the arts and creating imagery. I spent a lot of time painting, drawing, and working with mixed media. It wasn’t until college that I found photography and something really clicked. I knew this is how I wanted to make a living.

There was just something about putting a frame around real-life, capturing that moment in time that really appealed to me. So I packed my bags and headed out west to attend the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara California. I grew in my craft and made some great friends along the way. A few years after college I was visiting one of those friends (Eric Prine) in Savannah, GA while on vacation with my wife.

We fell in love with the city and all its historic charm. It was on that trip Eric and I decided we would team up and start a photography business in Savannah and thus Attic Fire Photography was born. Though we have worked in many different aspects of the photographic industry over the past 15 years, architectural photography has been our main area of expertise.

Photographing everything from small homes and interiors to resorts and large commercial projects across the country.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Like any small business owner, you are faced with many challenges along the way.

Keeping up with changes in trends and visual styles. Staying on top of changes in technology which create new ways to do our job and interact with our clients.

Also, like everyone else we are impacted by economic downturns like in 2008. When the buildings stop being built we lose out on work.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
The thing I love most about architectural photography is collaborating with talented architects and interior designers to capture their designs in interesting ways.

Taking a three-dimensional space they have been working in and translating it into a two-dimensional photograph. Oftentimes, highlight structure and space in ways they could not have imagined.

The more I can be flexible with my clients and being able to tackle those unexpected situations help my clients rest easy knowing the job will still get done with great results. Trust and communication are key.

What quality or characteristic do you feel is most important to your success?
Years of honing my skills and working on my craft have helped me be a better photographer but the most important aspect of my success has been building personal relationships.

There are a lot of variables in any photoshoot. Delays, tight deadlines, weather, locations not being ready when I show up to name a few.

The more flexible I can be with my clients and being able to those unexpected situations helps my clients rest easy knowing the job will still get done with great results. Trust and communication are key.
