Featured photographer: Jamie Grill

Jamie Grill is my daughter. She is also a photographer in her own right and one of the top stock photography lifestyle shooters in the world, specializing in children, families, and youth culture. Her images are marketed through Tetra Images, Blend Images, Getty Images, and show up on every top traditional stock agency throughout the world.

The reason for her success is that she has the ability to take the most mundane stock topic and infuse it with her own special sauce -- her unique ingredients including a thoughtful camera angle coupled with extremely tight, out-or-the-ordinary cropping that has other photographers, myself included, saying "How simple...Why didn't I think to do that."  She makes it look easy, but, if you've ever tried it, it never is.

Her ability to capture the essence of a situation with only a few brushstrokes adds impact and excitement that never loses sight of the essential story she is telling -- and no matter where she points her camera, her images always tell a story. This is the main secret of her successful career.

In the studio Jamie Grill works primarily with a Nikon D4 and 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom. On her own, as Jamie Grill Atlas and now mother of a daughter, Vivi, she captures daily life with a Nikon D5200 and likes using it with a 35mm f/1.8 lens wide open.

Below are a sampling of her images including a few of the concepts she was portraying. Some were done in the studio, some in her daily life as wife and mother -- all uniquely reflecting the special point of view she brings to each situation. To see more visit...
