Education

2017-05-25_0002

My passion for photography has spilled over into my passion for people and I just love teaching and encouraging those who are eager to learn.

I offer classes for hobbyists, photographers and small business owners.

I offer classes for individuals or small groups on topics such as learning how to operate your own camera, how to take better photos, how to get out of auto, how to take product photographs, introduction to editing and many more. I also offer courses for small business owners on how to become your own photographer for your business. With the cameras available to all of us, there is no reason you can’t learn how to operate a dslr and create photographs to market your business successfully and beautifully.

I also take one on one mentorships for photographers who are looking to step out of the hobbyist and start their career. I wish I had someone that could have guided me through the steps  that it takes to establish a business or even just someone to offer their opinion on my work. I want to be that person for you! Take advantage of what I have learned in my career so you don’t have to learn by trial and error!  I offer packages for just one class or for a bundle of classes.

Topics that are covered for entrepreneurs range in everything from setting up your business,  marketing, portfolio critique, social media, shooting, editing, and everything in between. For these students, I also offer hands on shooting instruction in a fully styled atmosphere. If you are looking to finally begin that career you have been waiting for or are looking to show the world your work and just don’t know how to do it, I will help you and guide you through it. Please contact me for pricing and availability.

I can’t wait to meet you and help you on your own journey to greatness!

Testimonials

” Jamie has been the most encouraging and up lifting mentor I’ve ever been around. She challenged me to step out of my comfort zone, and to respect my time and value my work.  Her style is timeless. Jamie has a vast working knowledge of what it means to be a photographer. From being an artist to being an entrepreneur she handles it gracefully. She is the person you enjoy being around and almost feel guilty because she pours so much into what she teaches. I’ve never experienced a more loving and willing photographer who would share knowledge and encourage others to succeed. If you are looking to expand your knowledge of photography, or you are like me and need someone to challenge you to grow and build your business, don’t hesitate to contact Jamie. She’s worth the investment!” ~Holly Sigafoos Photography

“Jamie has taught me many things over the years. It all began with taking better photos and how to navigate the professional world of photography. She helped me to maximize the potential of my own equipment, and encouraged my personal style and passions. She has always been generous, humble, incredibly informative, and helpful in solving any in the moment issue. From Jamie, I learned the best culling and editing workflow, the importance of networking and balance, and how to make real life connections within the industry. She has been genuinely invested in my personal life goals and how I’m balancing my professional photography career while being a stay home mom and devoted wife. Trust me, you want Jamie in your life.” ~Katie M.
