"Passion is in all great searchers and is necessary to all creative endeavors."
-W. Eugene Smith
This studio was a dream. . . . . . truly a dream. I imagined this company for quite sometime. It's collective purpose, its goals, its reason for being. How will we be different? I envisioned a great "team" all sharing the same passion for the craft and for what we are trying to create. Each person on this team equally and individually submerges themselves in every project, all-contributing on different levels to the success of the final concepts. Experimentation is the key to our growth; it influences our creative direction and inspires our clients with new possibilities. This might seem like any other ordinary team, but it is the passion of what we do that resonates as the heartbeat of Studio J.
The core of Studio J is a passionate team with ridiculous expectations for success in our every creation. These expectations drive us to meet and exceed our own company standards and in the end, deliver more to our clients than they expected. Many people toss around the word "passion" casually as if it is something that everyone possesses. We do not. Studio J takes it to the next level and our work exemplifies the passion that we have for the love of what we do.
My desire to create something – a group, a studio, collaboration – has always been a dream, but became a reality in the late 2005 when a good friend presented me with the opportunity to create a studio with my personal touch and vision. For her, and for that opportunity, I am truly thankful.
Eric Jamison is an intense, creative and über-talented young photographer whose skill, experience and reputation belie his age. Approaching every project with an artist's eye – one that can transform what would be an ordinary photo into the extraordinary – Eric has already made a name for himself within the dynamic and fast-paced Las Vegas market as a first-rate photographer of people and places.
"Photography is so similar to climbing. Today, I get the same sense of accomplishment from creating a nice image as I used to from climbing a big wall. A large production photo shoot is like starting at the base of a rock wall. You better have done your homework and you must be immensely prepared to commit to the route. Failure is not an option. The reward granted from mastering each challenge is what keeps me both climbing and shooting."
In addition to his meteoric rise to the top of the professional ladder with a reputable photographic firm in Las Vegas, Eric has been a regular Freelance Photographer for the Associated Press since 2000, primarily shooting boxing, major sporting events, award shows and news stories. In fact, Eric has photographed every major boxing event in Las Vegas during the past five years. One of his images was chosen by the Associated Press to be featured in their own national print ad campaign – a mighty powerful endorsement for one of the world's largest and oldest news organizations.
"Recently, I began to experiment with underwater fashion photography. These projects include photos of suit-wearing executives and models in abstract poses to name just a few. This nearly weightless environment makes for captivating and poetic imagery of people in a very surreal environment. The results are not only getting attention, they are helping Studio J to establish itself as a place where creativity is valued. This experimentation has generated intense creative fuel and direction for the Studio J team."
In Las Vegas, Eric frequently shoots editorial, runway and fashion, architectural, food, golf courses and creative portraiture. His strength are architecture, advertising and editorial-style photography and he enjoys the unique challenges presented by all assignments. He especially enjoys shooting high-end, well-designed commercial and residential buildings like custom homes and well designed clubs or restaurants.
Eric began his professional career in Las Vegas immediately upon graduating college where he received a communications degree in advertising and photography. He has devoted himself to his profession ever since. His personal accounts read like a who's who in Las Vegas and include many top corporations, developers, national builders, architects, professional marketing firms, editorial publications, casinos and advertising agencies.
When Eric finds time to unwind, he enjoys golf, rock climbing, travel and spending time with his wife Laurie & their children Chloe and Quinn.
I have always had a great passion for film, travel and photography. Thus, following graduation from high school, I chose to travel the world. I not only gained a wealth of knowledge from my experiences, but further developed a fondness of the visual arts. As a result, I enrolled and graduated from UNLV, with a degree in Film, in order to learn as much as possible, about the world of photography.
Following school, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my passion of film and to begin my career. I was fortunate to work on some great film sets, ranging from music videos (Run DMC & Sum 41), to television series (HBO's "Entourage"), to commercials (California Lottery) and independent films (AFI, Slamdance & LV Film Festivals).
As an opportunity to further my career arose in Las Vegas, I left the ocean and moved back to the desert. I also made an exciting change from motion picture to photography and found myself driven with a renewed artistic passion.
Thus, today I find myself with the good fortune of working at Studio J Inc., with Eric Jamison and his team. Eric is not only very knowledgeable in the field of photography, but he is also very passionate and driven; he shares & instills these same qualities in those who have the opportunity to work with and learn from him.
Being a part of Studio J Inc., allows me to continue to follow my desire to travel the world and my pursuit of photography and also, to be part of an organization that is always focused on growing creatively. I look forward to being a major part of their success.
My creative venture into the visual arts began several years ago when I was introduced to the vast art of videography.
A friend and I started an independent video production company in Reno, Nevada, and took on an assortment of projects including everything from short films to TV commercials to music videos.
Over the years of working with video, I eventually broadened my horizons found myself completely immersed in the multifaceted world of still photography.
Photography quickly became my passion. In addition to the creative aspect of the art form, I have always been intrigued by the problem solving aspect of using different lighting, angles, camera settings and lenses to achieve a specific result.
After doing photography as "just a hobby" for many years, I went on a quest to find a fun, exciting and intellectually stimulating career doing something I love.
Eric Jamison and Studio J answered my calling and provided me with the opportunity of a lifetime. I now have the career I've always wanted with an extremely well established commercial photography studio. Here, I can develop my talent as a photographer while at the same time developing myself as a professional individual.
