Jamie Paterson – Images of Inspiration, Captivation, and Fascination

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year


Hi Everyone,

Melissa, Xavier and I wanted to wish you all a fantastic, and safe Christmas and Happy New Year.   It has been a fantastic year photography wise and family wise.   In 11 short months I’ve managed to connect with an absolutely brilliant community of photographers and its been a privilege to catch up with you all.    Its been a great personal photographic journey this year and many of you out there have accelerated my journey.   So thank you.   Some of you have produced such incredible work that has astounded me and I’ve been grateful that you would share that work with us.    So thank you.

To those of you who have provided comments, advice and a gentle guiding hand via this site.  Thank you.    I can only imagine what awaits photography wise in 2009.   Now for my Oscar speech. 🙂   I’d like to credit Christian for the inspiration he has provided many of us, and especially for being so open and genourous in his knowledge and support.   I’d also like to thank Neal and Kirk for putting up with me week in and week out, while crawling down cliffs and getting lost in National Parks when temps were near 10 degrees, for sharing your shooting tricks and locations.   You guys have certainly opened my eyes to what is possible and pushed me hard, very hard.    I look forward to more shoots in 2009.    Dylan thanks for the almost daily updates at times of extremely high quality work.   Mel thanks for making me laugh whilst on location.   Flemming thanks for sharing your knowledge and your honesty.   Thank you to the rest of you who commented and let me know that at times I was doing something right, you all made it worthwhile.   Mostly I want to thank Melissa and Xavier for being so patient with me drifting off at all hours of the day to capture ‘the shot’, without your support and understanding none of this would’ve been possibe.    So bring on 2009!!!!

Stay safe and enjoy the holidays,

Jamie Paterson

    Well, well, well… Look who you stumble across when you are surfing the net after buying a new camera. Found you via Christian Fletcher’s blog. For a hint, the ‘Bl’ part of my username are the first two initials of my surname. We used to work together. Send me an email at username@iinet.net.au 🙂

    Perth’s a small world, huh?
