In the words of our guest, “the greatness we experience in life should be used for a greater purpose.” Joining us today is world-renown celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart.

Who is Jeremy Cowart?

“At his core, Jeremy is an artist. Starting out as a painter first, Jeremy fell in love with the creative process. He then went on to study graphic design in college and founded his own graphic design company, Pixelgrazer, in 2001. Jeremy really only began taking pictures to bring texture into his design work. But before he knew it, he realized that photography was his true passion. So in April of 2005, Jeremy switched over to it full time and he has never looked back. In a relatively short amount of time, Jeremy earned the respect of artists, photographers, and celebrities alike. Now hailed as one of the trailblazers in the industry, Jeremy sees photography as a natural extension of his passion for the arts.

Jeremy has taken portraits of many familiar names such as Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Tim Tebow, The Kardashians, Sting, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Heidi Klum, Gwyneth Paltrow, The Civil Wars, Emma Stone, Courtney Cox, and Ryan Seacrest, just to name a few. His clients, mostly entertainment based, include ABC, FOX, A&E, F/X, Discovery Channel, ESPN, People, US Weekly, VIBE, E!, Universal Records, Sony Records and Warner Brothers Records. His work has been published in Rolling Stone, ESPN Magazine, People Magazine, USA Today, Fast Company, NYTimes, TIME, Nylon and more.” – courtesy of JeremyCowart.com

About The Purpose Hotel

“I’ve traveled the world for the past decade as a photographer, and every time I stay at a hotel, I can’t help but think — what if everything in this hotel was connected to a cause or a need? Could a simple shift like that change the world? Imagine not just a hotel, but a global hotel chain, where every time you book a room:

  • A child gets sponsored.
  • The internet fee fights human trafficking.
  • Every product (soap, shampoo, linens, furniture, curated art, specialty products) is purchased from partners who are making a difference.

In the lobby, a clean water well symbolizes the flow of hope and life to everyone and everything connected to the hotel. By choosing this hotel, you touch a hundred lives or more locally and internationally. You literally change the world in your sleep. And that’s just the beginning. The design reimagines the hotel as a creative, interactive experience that ignites the imagination, promotes play and fosters community.

“[Purpose is] where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” – Frederick Buechner

We aim to create a joy-filled space where this generation can come together and make awesome things happen.

It starts right now. Let’s make history.” – courtesy of The Purpose Hotel
