About Jerry Greer Photography

Jerry D. Greer was introduced to the wonders of the wilderness at an early age. Growing up in the Blue Ridge bestowed in him a desire to protect and conserve their ever vanishing ecosystems. By choice, he works almost exclusively in the southern Appalachian region and Jerry's love for his native mountains fuels 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, Outdoor Photographer, Mountain Bike Magazine, View Camera, WNC Magazine, Backpacker, Royal Robbins, LL Bean, The Lyndhurst Foundation, Wild South, REI, Pew Environment Group, 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 and lives in Johnson City, TN with his wife, Abbey and their daughter, Serén.


Greer Photography offers digital photography services for the Mid-Atlantic and Southern United States non-profits, government agencies, private and commercial clients.  We are fully committed to the wild spaces from the mountains to the seas of the south. We want to educate and inspire people to protect and preserve what makes these places so special.
