1 RESUME / CV • JAMEY STILLINGS I am at a dynamic and vibrant point in my photographic career -- a nexus formed from the cumulative and varied experiences of the past few decades. It is a time to summon my creative intuition, interpersonal skills, and seasoned perspectives to foster new work that has meaning, substance and relevance. My work spans fine art, documentary and commissioned projects. A passionate curiosity about people, cultures, technology, and the environment continues to be a guiding force in my photography and life. I strive for well-executed productions paired with an approach that encourages collaboration and remains open to unexpected opportunities. Increasingly, I seek projects that provide the occasion to study a subject in depth. This might be realized by documenting the evolution of a subject over a period of years or by recording the intensity of a single day. Within a diverse range of photographic interests, I continue to broaden my look at issues of sustainability with a special focus on renewable energy development and water. I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA with Esha Chiocchio, my wife, and our two children.
