It’s great for clients to know who they’ll be working with, so here’s a little about me, Jamiya Wilson.
I was born and raised in Jackson, MS and even as a child, I was always inspired by visuals. Photographs, films, and animation all intrigued me, so I knew I wanted to be in a profession that revolved around how things looked. Therefore I went to Full Sail University and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Film. But I never would have guessed I would choose to be a photographer. Life’s funny like that sometimes.
I was working as a video editor and absolutely loathed my job. So one day I said enough is enough. I quit my job and went to the mall to console myself. In my “grief”, a guy at a camera store sold me a camera and I never put it down. Learning photography quickly became an obsession for me. That was in 2006. Now I work as a professional photographer in New York. “Who woulda thunk it?”
JWilson Headshots was created in order to give actors and business professionals a place where they could get professional headshots at an affordable price. It’s my belief that you should be able to get amazing headshots and not break the bank. But affordable doesn’t mean cheap! Rest assured that you’ll be working with a professional photographer with years of experience who’ll produce the kind of incredible headshots you need to reach your goals. I’m looking forward to working with you and helping you get the headshots you need.
