Jamie leads photo workshops throughout the East Coast. When not traveling for workshops or conferences, you’ll find her playing with flowers, still lifes, searching antique stores and markets for props to use in arrangements, and exploring new places to walk and photograph. Her goals are to encourage and inspire and help people grow in their photography skills, more deeply connect with their subjects and see beyond the obvious so that they can discover their own visual voice.
