Jeremiah Edwards has been photographing for thirteen years, specializing in cosplay, head shots, and family portraits. He started Squirrelly Jedi Photography six years ago.
Jeremiah photographs events for charity groups such as JediOKC and the DC Marvel League. He volunteers as a photographer for SoonerCon, Tokyo in Tulsa, the Annual April Cosplay Photoshoot, New World Comic Con, and International Cosplay Day.
He loves helping local cosplayers bring their characters to life and building their portfolios. He is a third-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and a Nidan black belt in Aikido. He spends his spare time nerding it up with his wife and two daughters. Just mention that you like Star Wars or anything else nerdy, and you will have a new friend who is ready to talk your ear off.
