I am a photographer.

Photography is magical.  It centrally deals with the capture of light, and light is perhaps the most fascinating, mysterious and essential element of life as we know it.  

Photography also deals with time.  Each moment of our life is unique and will never be repeated again.  To be able to capture light and time and preserve it for future enjoyment is an incredible feat of technology, and yet due to the overwhelming flood of images that pass by our eyes every day online and in media, we take it completely for granted.

Another fascinating facet of photography is its relationship to perspective.  Perspective can be defined as the individual angle that each of us views the world from, both physically and philosophically.  We all have our own perspective, as unique to us as our fingerprints, or a fleeting moment of our lives.   Each of our perspectives is equally valid and meaningful to us, and photography is an excellent way to express and share one’s unique perspective of the world.  It is an amazing fact that I can stand in a photo pit at a concert with 10 other photographers, all shooting the same subject, and each one of us can capture incredibly unique perspectives.  I have a rule for photography that applies equally well to life itself:

“If you don’t like what you see, change your perspective.”

I did a study on perspective a couple of years ago called the Daily Shoes Project.  The idea was that I would shoot the same subject each day and attempt to make each shot unique and different, beautiful in its own way.  I have a theory that creativity thrives with restrictions and was excited to see that play out in the project.

If you are curious, the project can be found at https://www.flickr.com/photos/jamieseed/sets/72157633302335821 or dailyshoesproject.tumblr.com.  I really had a lot of fun with that project!  It was challenging to keep finding unique perspectives, but it was always possible!

Photography is my bliss, and I have followed it into places that i never thought I would be able to go.  I am living proof that Joseph Campbell’s famous admonition is true:  “Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.”  

I’m excited to see where this path will lead next, and feel that my best work is still ahead of me.  That’s an exciting thought.  Let’s work together to create something special.  Email me  and let’s chat about how I can help you!
