Jamie Lowe

I have had a passion for photography ever since being at art school. With my background of art and design study and later art teaching in a variety of locations around the world, I have always loved photography. It began as a necessary support and accompaniment to making art but gradually evolved into a choice of medium.

I like to shoot people and I take photographs to connect with people, so that the camera becomes a two-way device for communication. My portrait photographs are built out of the relationships with others and those random connections with others. They are an attempt to put the subjects at their ease and suggest more of their subtle personalities that tell us more of who they are.

My travel and editorial images are created as a result of seeking the human element, the everyday, the routine, the rituals and practices which occur against the backdrop of the unfamiliar - yet remind us somehow of our own lives.

Clients include South China Morning Post, Word Magazine, Vietnam and corporate clients. I am also a Getty Images contributor.

I like to say that:  "Photography Always Wins!",  because I think that photography has the capacity to evolve and adapt over time. Photography has a shape-shifting diversity -that ability to run alongside us in every aspect of our lives. It  mirrors and records our humanity with supernatural concern.

Less likely to take "selfies"- and more likely to express curiosity for the world around me, I use social media to post daily diary images with my mobile phone.

Photography never loses its magic and I look forward to sharing that with you.
