About Jamie

Jamie’s primary photographic focus is on capturing vivid landscape images that he says, “are a reflection of my emotions in the moment as I press the shutter button.” These images, and his other works ranging from gritty urban scenes to moments of daily life, can be seen in his Getty Images stock portfolio and professional online portfolio.

When Jamie isn’t spending time with his wife and two sons, he can often be found leading workshops or photowalks, working on his podcast or writing articles for many popular photography websites, such as The Phoblographer, borrowlenses.com, 
Steve Huff Photo, or his own website jmacdonaldphoto.com. Jamie’s educational content from his writing to instructional videos on Youtube are often cited as “must see content” for those making the move to the Olympus system as he is widely regarded as an authority on the Olympus line of products and mirrorless technologies.

“The portability and weather sealing of my Olympus gear ensure my photography adventures aren’t hindered by weather or terrain.”

Since becoming an Olympus Visionary, Jamie has become just as passionate about educating both new and experienced photographers as he is creating images himself.

Jamie can be found across all major social media platforms from Instagram, to Youtube, to Twitter and Facebook and is always encouraging people to reach out to him with questions and guidance in their photographic journey. He can also be seen hosting his popular webshow and podcast Mirrorless Minutes with fellow Olympus Visionary Mike Boening.
