About Jamie Birchfield
A Little About Me...
My journey as a photographer began as a child looking through all the old photographs of past generations my Grandmother had kept in boxes. I inherited some of them and I cherish all those images of relatives I never met, some images are over 100 years old. My love for photography grew from there and throughout my life I have always wanted to capture those moments in time of my family history.
I went back to school after years of working in non-profit organizations and I rediscovered a lifelong passion for photography. I graduated from Southern Illinois University with a Bachelors Degree in University Studies with a minor in photojournalism and psychology. My studies were concentrated in fine art photography, photojournalism and multi-media. My images have been published in four books produced by Southern Illinois University. I have been working professionally for eleven years now and I love all types of photography but truly love storytelling through images.
We recently relocated to the Emerald Coast, our happy place, where we have ten acres in Walton County we plan to build on in the near future.
