Jamie Link can best be described as an optimistic and adventurous soul. He learned to ski at age four. He backpacked through Europe at age seven. Since then he's tackled helicopter snowboarding in the backcountry, white water rafting, SCUBA, and even sky diving. One of his favorite pursuits however, is driving his award winning 2001 Jeep which he built and designed himself to maneuver treacherous terrains in the western United States. Along the way Jamie always brought his camera to capture these escapades. Several years ago Jamie lost his father to cancer. That event caused Jamie to re-evaluate his life path that he had chosen. He was attending school full time in preparation for a corporate desk job and working as a bartender leaving little time for anything else. It was then he decided to return to the adventurous activities that once brought him the most joy. Jamie combined his passion for these adventures with his love of photography and things have taken off from there.
Today Jamie Link concentrates on producing art-inspired photography of city/rural landscapes, architecture, sunsets, wildlife, extreme sports, corporate events, portraits, and even weddings.
Jamie's photos artfully capture the primitive beauty of nature to produce strikingly serene and inviting landscapes. He continuously works to find new subjects and opportunities to expand his art photography so visit his website often to find his latest works.
