Famous Inspiring Quotes
“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.”- Diane Arbus

"No place is boring, if you’ve had a good night’s sleep and have a pocket full of unexposed film. "- Ansel Adams

"Stare. It is the way to educate your eye, and more. Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long." - Walker Evans 

"Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow. " - Imogen Cunningham

 "I never have taken a picture I've intended. They're always better or worse." Diane Arbus

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever…it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." - Aaron Siskind

"The word ‘art’ is very slippery. It really has no importance in relation to one’s work. I work for the pleasure, for the pleasure of the work, and everything else is a matter for the critics." - Manuel Alvarez Bravo 

" Photography is the power of observation, not the application of technology." - Ken Rockwell’s

"If you want to be a better photographer, stand in front of more interesting stuff." - Jim Richardson

"Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary." - Cecil Beaton 

"Remember that the person you are photographing is 50% of the portrait and you are the other 50%. You need the model as much as he or she needs you. If they don’t want to help you, it will be a very dull picture." - Lord Patrick Lichfield

"A lot of photographers think that if they buy a better camera they’ll be able to take better photographs. A better camera won’t do a thing for you if you don’t have anything in your head or in your heart. " - Arnold Newman

"Our pictures are our footprints. It’s the best way to tell people we were here." - Joe McNally 

For as long as I can remember creativity, individuality and style have always been the main influence in my life. Although I enjoy music, dance, and many different styles of art, I feel most confident behind a camera lens (and in digital editing software). I love to create beautiful, fun, and not your everyday photographs. On location, photography is my muse but I'm also capable of designing original dynamic props & sets. Modeling, boudoir/pin up portraits, and fashion are my specialties. Currently located & booking from New Haven Connecticut area. 

As far as my photographic style is concerned, I consider myself a "modern artist" with a fine arts degree- which means I produce images that are fresh & new with a classic timeless flare. I am also flexible to many different types of sessions/subjects. I book/work with, including and not limited to, models, portraiture, fashion, musicians, dancers, weddings, fine art, product, and even pets. With over ten years experience, I make it so you are able to relax and enjoy each moment of a photography session, and rely on the fact that I want you to love your photos. 

I received my first degree cum laude, an AFA in photography in 2003 at Paier College of Art. Shortly after, I attended school to expand my digital editing passions at the International Academy of Design and Technology and received an AS in digital production (audio/video production) in 2005.

Since graduating I have been fortunate with steady work and endless resources of creative ideas. I've produced images for promotional materials, pin ups, weddings, dancers, graduations, portraits (newborn+), and musicians from Hatebreed to Hip Hop. I have also won opportunities to online solo exhibitions (from Kiadedc Academic Gallery), fine art gallery showings, many photo contest (fine art - digital art), and have worked with several noted fine art photographers from the east coast. 

My art is a part of me. My motto is to live like a dinosaur- because after we're gone, all you can leave behind is your footprints. If I can share a little piece of me by my art work, then I feel my life has been a success. So with in the self expression that is my video portfolio shorts you will see: love, satyr, joy, lust, beauty, and a bit of horror (I am personally a huge horror buff). I suppose the best view into the strange realm which is "the mind of Jamie" is to view my digital photo portfolio. There you will see subjects such as: "the not so disney series", and "swamp zombie prom queen" (I think those titles are incentive enough to visit throughout my video portfolios). 

Availability for travel is no problem (noting travel expenses will be included in session cost). I have a very flexible pricing scale to accommodate every type of client's needs.
