Jamie Smith Photography
Jamie Smith is an artist and professional photographer. He has produced the Jay Maisel Workshop in New York City since 2007, and was Mr. Maisel’s full-time Studio Manager for two years from 2008-2009. Jamie has also worked as a Technical Assistant for Seth Resnick & Jamie Spritzer’s D-65 Digital Photography Workflow workshops.
From 2000 to 2006 he independently photographed journalism assignments for newspapers in northeastern Pennsylvania including The Times Leader and in Southern California for the San Diego Union-Tribune and The North County Times. While living in San Diego, Jamie was elected to serve as Secretary on the board of the local chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers
Jamie holds a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from the University of California at Santa Barbara. Originally from Palo Alto, California, “Jamie no shoes”, as his neighbors called him, spent many summers barefoot along the Susquehanna River at his grandmother’s house in Pennsylvania. To support that same local community he recently co-produced the 2012 ‘Meeting of the Art Waters’ photography exhibit to benefit the North Branch Land Trust and Blue Chip Farms Animal Refuge. In 2012 he also photographed and produced the ‘Flood’, a retrospective look at the flooding of the Susquehanna River in West Pittston, with proceeds to benefit the West Pittston Library.
Jamie has called many places home. In 2012 he and his wife and daughter relocated back to NEPA after several years in New York City.
Jamie’s personal work is a blend of observation and curiosity. Simply put, he is a unique artist with a common last name.
