Jamie Goodsell is from upstate New York and has had a camera with him since he was around nine years old. It was in a high school darkroom class where a teacher introduced him to the basic principles of photography, the manual workings of the camera, and photographers like Marry Ellen Mark, Richard Avedon, and William Eggleston that he realized it was what he wanted to do.
He spent four years in the U.S. Navy earning his college tuition so he could one day attend art school. In 2012, he graduated with honors obtaining his BFA in Photography from The Art Institute of Nashville. His education brought him to an internship at Third Man Records with the intentions of assisting the in-house photographer and maybe one day shooting for them on his own. That internship turned into an eight-year career, creating well over twenty album covers, product photography for their website, artist promotional photography, reviving the darkroom, as well as maintaining all studio equipment.
Jamie's work has been described as thoughtful, rich, and even chocolaty which makes us all hungry for more. He's available for commissions anywhere on the planet and would love to take on whatever projects you have in mind.
