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.

The Olympus Visionary Program is Olympus America Inc.’s official program for its sponsored photographers. Olympus Visionaries consist of a select group of photographers from across the U.S. and Canada who represent a variety of photography genres, and offer varying years of experience and influence. From Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalists to successful entrepreneurs to passionate creators who shoot and share their vision with their dedicated social communities, each has a unique point of view, an enthusiasm for Olympus products and the brand, a strong presence in the photography community, and best practices to share.

The Visionaries use their unique real-world experiences and technical expertise to inspire photo enthusiasts and professionals alike and embrace Olympus camera systems as their tool of choice for capturing and sharing their world in vivid detail. They provide product feedback in an effort to improve Olympus products, programs and services. They also represent Olympus by speaking at Photography Conferences, Photo Specialty Dealer Events, Tradeshows, and more.
