Mentoring with Jamie Rae
When searching for inspiration, I stumbled across Jamie Rae's photography website. I was quickly lured to her "love stories" blog. There I uncovered, not only astounding imagery, but also captivating storytelling both visually and written. I felt as if I had fallen in love with each couple who had the opportunity to work with Jamie. I instantly knew that I had to have her as a mentor. After a few emails and the exchange of information, I was off to a day filled with knowledge. Learning from Jamie has made my vision of becoming a great photographer much more clearer. If I were to choose, from the many things that I have learned from her, one thing that inspired me the most would be the process of getting to know a person's story and the ability to capture it with ease. With her help, I have discovered the reasons why I am so intrigued by photography. I am starting to see my own personal style develop. Before meeting Jamie, photography was a dream job. Now, I have my eyes wide open and I'm confident that I am heading in the right direction.
