Jamie’s work as Director of Photography has kept him in demand in the television industry, too. You’ve seen his work on over seventy five network and cable pilots and episodes and long-form movies.
Jamie’s work on the pilot and episodes of Covert Affairs, took him around the world, often to locations where no crew had ever before worked. Doing the impossible was often a day’s work.
Covert Affairs’s producers knew talent and value and placed Jamie in the director’s chair. The work speaks for itself. He applies a lifetime of learning and experience to running an efficient and productive set where story is paramount.
After 40 years in the film business Jamie has turned his talents and experience towards making wine. An opportunity arose to acquire a winery and he took it. With a life time of experience tasting wine all over the world, he has turned that knowledge into making wines in the style we can all enjoy. No matter the challenge, Jamie delivers.
