About Me

©2015 Jamie A. MacDonald

I find my inspiration on the streets of my hometown, Detroit, Michigan, specializing in street and urban photography. As a member of the Olympus Visionary Program, Mike first caught the eye of Olympus through his work with Out of Chicago and his “Shoot Light, Shoot Often” philosophy.

Over the last six years, I have worked with the Detroit Metro Convention Bureau and Pure Michigan campaign where my images were not only in their calendars for 2015 but also in a billboard campaign throughout Michigan. I write for numerous photography blogs and am an active reviewer of gear. I regularly teach workshops on street and urban photography as well as the Live Composite feature found in Olympus OM-D model cameras. My workshops range from short afternoon walks in Detroit up to 3 day events in cities like San Francisco, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Toronto, Ontario.

When I’m not behind a camera, I am in front of one serving as co-host of the biweekly video podcast, “Mirrorless Minutes.” I am passionate about what can be accomplished with the Olympus Micro Four Thirds systems, using the PEN-F and the entire OM-D line for my outdoor shooting exploits.

Was one of the first members in The Arcanum cohort along with 18 other street photographers from around the world.

    Mike! Thanks so much for your street tips on olympus’ newsletter! Really helpful and I’m going to try some shots. Also since I am from an industrial area I’d love to shoot old factories and ones all lit up at night. Any hints? Of course tripod is needed. Thx again and much success to you. Christy

      Thanks for making contact and I hope you can use a couple when you hit the streets soon. One thing you might want to try which will change your image a bit is shoot your factories at night in the Incandescent white balance. make sure you shoot RAW+ JPEG so you can always go back to the RAW and change it if you like. It adds a cooler tone and can make some of the buildings really cool. Thanks again.
