shoot gallery // s u m m e r by jamie atlas

I know, I k n o w, the solstice isn’t until June 21st…but Memorial Day has passed, and so I claim that SUMMER is upon us! The colors, hot sunshine, water sprays, and energy burst of the season are what I love to capture most - the images I take in summer months are the true expression of my heart, and are almost always my favorites of the year. Sure, there is beauty to the quiet, dimmer images of winter, but I am basically itching all winter to post their bright summer counterparts. So here are a few of my favorites, all taken in 2018 or ‘19 so far. As always, you can license my work at Stocksy, Tetra, or Getty Images.

It’s SPRING and the birds are chirping and the flowers are popping and…it’s been raining quite a bit lately, actually…but sunshine is slowly and surely burning through the clouds. So it’s a fitting time to round out my color blocked gallery series with YELLOW. It’s a self-indulgent and satisfying exercise to pour over your own previous work and play different images against each other. Some of these images were produced years ago, but many are from the last year or so…and all are available for license. You can find my work at Getty, Tetra Images, and Stocksy United.

commercial shoot // spring equinox in brooklyn by jamie atlas

Shooting on the first day of spring, when the temps are still freezing but the hope is high, means finding pops of color anywhere you can! A few favorites from my commercial shoot last week, shot for Stocksy United in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.

color blocking // B L U E by jamie atlas

When I have a chance to stop hustling and constantly looking forward at the next things to shoot, shoot, shoot, it can be really satisfying to look b a c k over the archive of work I’ve created in the past, to cull through my body of work and see how images play differently next to each other. Instead of always pouring over Pinterest and Instagram, I can inspire my own damn self for a change! Ha. For no apparent reason (or for the best reason ever, of just entertaining myself), I decided to blog a series of galleries of my work organized by color. A lot of these were taken in 2018, but some are from a few years past. First up, B L U E…

commercial shoots // my new home location by jamie atlas

I endured a few major changes in location last year - after my lifetime in NYC, my husband and I moved with our kiddos from Brooklyn to the suburbs (eek!) and after 10 years shooting in the same loft studio in Jersey City, Marisa and I packed up our props and said goodbye to our headquarters. Change is not my forte, and I was dreading the move on both fronts...but I have to say, I think I'm blossoming in the 'burbs! One perk to 'burb life is that living in a house is super lovely. When I pad down the stairs in my slippers for coffee in the morning, I feel like I've rented a quaint airbnb. And the house kills two birds with one stone, because it's also a perfect built-in location for the commercial photoshoots we do each week. We still miss our prop shelves and our Jersey City lunch orders (you forever have our hearts, Little Sandwich Shop!), but it's been a nice change to shoot in a home instead of building sets every week. Here are a few favorite images we've gotten from some recent commercial lifestyle shoots we've done in my new home:
