Artwork of Jamie Rood

Artist's Statement: Artistry of Jamie Rood - Beyond the Photograph

My artwork originates from an idea or something interesting I find in our environment. I am influenced by hiking in the wilderness, urban decay, ambient music, yoga & meditation and a spirit of exploration.

Connecting with My Art

I hope you will ‘feel something’ while enjoying my images. It may be a fond memory, or more complex emotion. Perhaps the color and texture just speak to you. In any event, I invite you to ‘explore’ and ‘get to know’ my work.

The Process

The images start from photographs I’ve taken, often (but not always) multiple exposures combined into a High Dynamic Range (HDR) image, with some digital editing and touchup. I sometimes use different light than you may expect to capture the scene in a unique way.

Usually a more artistic realization waits to be discovered beyond the raw, initial ‘shot’, as a beautiful as it may be. Photography & digital darkroom techniques allow me to ‘uncover the depth’, capture more light & color, and edit to create images ranging from realistic to surreal-looking ‘digital paintings’. It may be simply bringing out an object I saw when I took the shot or maybe something I found while editing. The process may involve combining exposures, painting with digitally with the stylus & tablet, combining images to set a mood or tell a story - a lot of exploring for sure :)


You will find my limited edition fine art prints available on canvas, sealed & stretched ready to hang on the wall or paper matted & ready for framing. Also available on aluminum, ceramic tile coasters, drink huggers, cutting boards, phone cases & more. I use only archival materials in production and can create very large pieces in house.



Each printed with archival High Dynamic Range (HDR) inks or Ultrachrome K3 ink.
