Just after getting married, my husband and I decided to quit our jobs, pack up our stuff and sail our boat to the Caribbean. After a year of sun, living life on an angle and hearing "no woman, no cry" 10 times too many, we decided to head back to land and to work. Four months later I settled into Blue Pixel, enjoying my new job despite my fading tan.
Jamie’s job at Blue Pixel: As Blue Pixel's photo editor, Jamie is responsible for organizing and creating a database of over 100,000 photos as well as selecting and photographing images used in national campaigns.
How she got her start: After a year of studio work for Stearns, a New York City department store, and an internship with internationally known photographer Mary Ellen Mark, Jamie traveled and photographed Europe. She later worked as a photographer for several New England newspapers and still freelances for The Associated Press.
Some favorite assignments: Photographing chefs of New York City, farmers of New Hampshire, the lobstermen of Maine, and the watermen of Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
You may have seen her: Lugging Pelican cases throughout the streets of Annapolis, at photo conventions throughout New York, or sailing in the Chesapeake Bay.
Honors and Awards: Prizes in the creative and illustrative categories from the New England Press Association, the Catalysis Prize for Creative Photography, and a grant from The Alexia Foundation. She had a feature spread in the National Press Photographers Association Magazine for her first place win in sports photography.
