Jamie fell in love with the camera when she first saw her grandfather’s work as an Air Force photographer. “He traveled the world, hanging out of plane with a 4×5 camera. I still have his negatives, including photos of President. Eisenhower and the Memphis Belle.” By 16, Jamie was assisting any photographer who would give her time, and soon after she was working at a local mom and pop photo shop. It’s in her blood.
Jamie’s favorite shoot this year was the Hospice Evening at the Flagler Museum. “It’s everything. History, fashion, high spirits. Every year I think it couldn’t possibly be better than the last and I am consistently surprised by how remarkable it is. I imagine the photographers who have shot in that same space since the gilded age, and I realize that I am so lucky to be a photographer in such elegant surroundings.”
