About Jamie

I’m a photographer and writer and set up followtheboat ten years ago. I’ve won and been commended in a number of competitions and had my work published.

I specialise in two styles of photography: travel and street, and like combining the two. I take elements of street photography but within the context of a travel location. Being in the fortunate position of travelling by boat I have access to some fascinating spots.

I don’t have much time for competitions these days but I have won and been commended in a number of prestigious awards.
  • Commended in the Sony World Photography Awards
  • Shortlisted in The Guardian Travel Photographer of the Year
  • Third in Wanderlust Travel Photographer of the Year
  • Winner in Walkopedia’s Travel Photographer of the Year
I’ve been published in a number of travel publications, including The Guardian, Wanderlust magazine, Oyster News, The Times and The Telegraph. My work was serialised in Sailing Today, where I also wrote gear test reviews.
As a featured photographer at the Urban Picnic Gallery I was keen to assist Rob Hill in setting up the Urban Picnic Street Photography website and competition. Within the space of a few months we gained over 2,000 followers on Facebook. The first year of the competition pulled in hundreds of entrants from around the world and was judged by Matt Stuart and Eric Kim.
I love taking on photography projects, be they personal, ongoing themes or organising events for other people. In 2012 I organised the first Google+ Anniversary photowalk in Cochin, which saw 100 attendees. I run photography workshops when I return to the UK.
