Photographer, Artist, Illustrator, Designer, Developer, and all-around Technophile, Jaymes is a graduate of Oregon State University, where he earned a BA from the College of Liberal Arts.
In addition to constantly having a camera in his hand since the age of 10, he served during the 1990's in the USAF in places including the US, Europe, Middle East, Asia, the Caribbean and Central America. He stumbled into an Information Technology career while in the Air Force and has worked in the Information Security field for 12 years.
Even though he hasn't worked as a photography professional his entire life, his life has been guided by his love of art. He is a self-taught photographer. The 'art of the image' though photography is a major focus in his life. Probably because of his technology background, he was an early adopter of digital. It's allowed him to blend his two loves of photography and computers which opens up all kinds of creative possibilities.
He is the owner and Chief Photographer of Jaymes Williams Fotografi. The unusual spelling of photography is the Norwegian spelling which reflects his family's background.
He has had several small gallery shows in Portland, OR and Fort Lauderdale, FL. Currently, there are several hundred of his images available for view on fotopedia.com with a number of them featured in some Fotopedia iPhone/iPad applications. Prints of his works are also available on a number of retail websites.
Jaymes' artistic style is hard to define. He simply follows what attracts his eye. In the same shoot, he may make photos of architecture, street life, or abstract shapes found in man-made or natural settings. That hard-to-describe style is where the 'enigma' comes from.
Before starting Jaymes Williams Fotografi in 2012, Jaymes' previous project was Enigma Fotografi. He was one of the very first to release an iPhone app of his own photography in 2009. However, he was quite likely the first photographer who also coded his own app.
Jaymes strives for continual improvement in the technical aspects of his photography and continual exploration in his artistic direction. Towards those ends, he has taken training from the New York Institute of Photography, Kelby Training, and read many photography and art books.
Currently, he is working on several projects including a website redesign; developing a few iPad apps to exhibit images from his recent trips to Paris, Rome and Berlin; and, finally, creating 'dry goods' featuring his images including clothing, accessories and home decor.
