An Olympus Visionary since 2012 Jaime MacDonald was a member of the Olympus PEN Ready Project.
Jamie MacDonald is a nature and stock photographer and social influencer living in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. A husband and the father of two boys who are widely featured in his work, he describes his love of photography as one that is “rooted in the desire to move people to see the world around them in new ways.”
With a primary focus on black-and-white landscapes and an unmatched passion for the Olympus brand, his professional portfolio and Getty Images stock portfolio runs the gamut from portraitures to still life to landscapes.
When he’s not out shooting, MacDonald can often be found contributing to the Small Camera BIG Picture mirrorless photography blog and a variety of mirrorless and Olympus-facing social media channels, where he is widely regarded and respected as an Olympus and mirrorless photography expert.
MacDonald highlights the Olympus OM-D E-M5 as his favorite Olympus camera for its combination of power, portability, weatherproofing and optics.
