Jamie started off shooting fashion photography for Dazed & Confused Magazine aged 18. Under the guidance of Emma Reeves and Nicola Formichetti, he went on to win a place on the D&AD advertising workshops and an internship at M&C Saatchi's London and New York offices, before going on to assist Fashion Photographer David Sims full time, as part of his in-house team.
Over the last 12 years Jamie has been mixing his disciplines between photography, film and graphics in various professional environments, from making short films for festivals/exhibits at the ICA, Sundance and Stella Artois After Dark, to creating music videos for the likes of Jack Penate and CocoRosie. He also branched into t-shirt design for Aron Bandoroff's aNYthing, alongside Dash Snow and Ryan McGinley, in New York City. Jamie started his professional career in advertising, for Fabien Baron's New York City agency Baron & Baron, which saw him working on adverts for CK Jeans, Diesel Fuel for Life and Viktor & Rolfs Flower Bomb, and led to him winning Best International Advertising Award at FiFi, the Fragrance Foundation's annual awards ceremony celebrating the creative achievements of the fragrance industry.
Shortly afterwards Jamie moved to LIPMAN NYC to rebrand Hudson Jeans, DVF and various other high profile and lucrative luxury brands, and found work art-directing international campaigns, alongside photographers such as Mario Sorrenti, Terry Richardson and Peter Lindbergh.
Over the past year, Jamie has moved back to London full-time, returning to New York in December 2011 to work in-house with Belstaff on the company rebrand, as well as consulting for Mario Testino's agency Higher & Higher, and most recently art directing the new Diesel Eyewear TV advertising campaign with BLINK productions.
