I am Jamie Kinney. A photographer based in Seattle Washington who enjoys all forms of photography, but especially wildlife and nature photography.
It is my sincere hope that my photography will inspire others to appreciate and protect the natural world around us. I believe that photography can be a powerful tool for conservation, and strive to use my art to promote awareness and appreciation of our planet's incredible biodiversity.
Growing up in the midwest during the 70s and 80s, I was what you would call a "free range" kid who spent his summers exploring the forests, fields, and streams surrounding our neighborhood. This adventurous spirit was reinforce during summer road trips to explore massive cave systems, visit national laboratories, check out radio telescopes, and scuba dive in the Florida Keys. After returning from these trips, we would invite friends and family over to our house, pull out the slide projector and screen to display our photos as we shared stories of our experiences on the road.
I now live in the Pacific Northwest with my beautiful wife Aimee, two sons, and our two dogs Harry and Poppy. I enjoy numerous outdoor activities, including bicycling, skiing, hiking, snorkeling, and scuba diving. During the pandemic, I learned how to cook (thanks to J. Kenji Lopez-Alt's books and videos) and now enjoy learning new recipes as I prepare meals for family and friends.
