My name is Jamie Daubendiek and I was first intrigued by photography from my grandpa who always had his film camera out taking pictures throughout my childhood. From my initial curiosity, I took a class in photography during high school where I learned all of the basics. When I attended Luther College I took another photography class and also had my first digital camera which helped me take a lot of memorable photographs. During that same time I completed the New York Institute of Photography. After college I moved out to Colorado and had a wonderful experience taking pictures of the gorgeous scenery through all of the seasons. I have recently moved back to Iowa and I enjoy taking landscape photographs wherever I travel. I find it fascinating that each photograph that is taken is one moment in time that can never be exactly reproduced again.
