I’m Possible.

“I can’t do this.” For many years, this was my reality. But it was a lie. A simple truth changed everything for me. It can for you, too.

I can’t do this. I’m not good enough. I’ll never be a success. These lies keep us from living, working and dreaming. It doesn’t have to be this way.

In “I’m Possible.” I share my story.

I am an unlikely success — a kid with bad grades from a Nashville suburb, who despite the odds, was crazy enough to believe “impossible” means “I’m possible.”

My parents made sure I believed one thing, and it’s made all the difference.

From a failure in photography class to being named the most influential photographer on the Internet …

From making bad grades in school to launching an online learning platform, SEE University …

From being quiet and shy to marrying the most amazing woman on the planet and having four beautiful children …

From feeling purposeless to founding a nonprofit and giving voice to thousands of victims of natural disasters and war around the world …

If this one idea could do this for me, what could it do for you?

Watch and share this story.

Jeremy. I also use my camera as a tool to bring awareness of social issues to the world. I have been working with women in reentry for over 4 years [changing the perception of the female convict through my camera] and I use the phrase from Brene Brown "I am enough" all the time . I love your phrase "I'm possible' and will be bringing it to my ladies when I run my women's Empowerment program.  I was introduced to you through Jennifer Russel  who was a friend of your brother.  Your story and your work is amazing. So happy she connected me to you.  Michele

Jeremy, the world owes your father a great debt by instilling your self belief that all things are possible and we are now seeing the results of your depth of talent. The forgiveness images and incredibly moving, an image is an image until you give it context, in taking images I also believe that the image is felt inside as much as what you see through the lens. With landscapes I go as quiet as possible inside and let my senses tell me what wants or needs to be shown. Photography is only a small part of you, it allows the man within to be heard, in your case that is a great priveledge to be able to witness. Who you are will always be your greatest achievement. Kind regards, Peter.

I watched this video last night, it had popped up in my Facebook news feed. With 18 min still left in the video, the story of the child who's family was murdered in front of her and her baby brother being thrown into a tree to bash his head and kill him.... I broke down in tears, just sobbing, upon learning of these people's stories. This story both wrecked me and inspired me, as a mom, a wife, and a photographer. I am heartbroken at the horrific realities of the world but inspired that we can make a difference and help people through photography!! I would love to do an interview with you if that was ever possible! I am in California so maybe over the phone! In person would be better!

Thank you for your story. It's inspired me to really believe in mine. I've had it in my heart to change to world and, if you did, then so can I.


If God has put desires in my heart, then it means they'll be lived out. 


If something is burning so desperately inside that it wants to come out, I guess it means it's a disservice to humanity to continue to listen to all the lies and negative forces that come against it. I so badly want there to be better communication/resolutions among the nations of this world. And I believe it can happen. I believe that being able to communicate on a cross-cultural basis and being able to observe on both sides of a situation can bring much peace. Peace is a result of trust, I think.


Your video really resonated with my heart and I just wanted to share. It's really inspired me to keep pursuing what I feel is inside my heart.

Thank you for being vulnerable and sharing your story.  I watched your video at exactly the right time.  I am a mom through adoption, my oldest and my youngest are both Haitian and I've lived in Haiti for several years.  One of our children was recently diagnosed with several learning disabilities and the numbers and percentiles shared with us regarding our child were shocking......and totally NOT reflective of his potential or his amazing spirit!  I was so grateful for the inspiration you shared through your own life, I needed it and I was encouraged to keep fighting for my child not to be defined by his challenges, but by his potential and gifts as God's child.  

Thank you!

Hi Jeremy,


Your story is very inspiring.  You overcame so many obstacles put to you in your early years, especially, which could have lead to you have a different life than you have come to achieve.  Your parents believed in you and gave you the courage, love and support to ready you for what would lay ahead.  Now you are inspiring and mentoring others to follow their paths and say" I"m Possible".  The world needs more people like you.  Regards  Shirley Rawlings
