Jamie Link can best be described as an optimistic and adventurous soul. He learned to ski at age four. He backpacked through Europe at age seven. Since then he’s tackled helicopter snowboarding in the backcountry, rafting and even sky diving. But his favorite pursuit is driving his award winning 2001 Jeep which he built and designed himself to maneuver treacherous terrains in the western United States. Along the way Jamie always brought his camera to capture these escapades. Several years ago Jamie lost his father to cancer. That event caused Jamie to re-evaluate his life. He was attending school full time and working as a bartender leaving little time for anything else. He decided to return to the adventurous activities that once brought him the most joy. Jamie combined his passion for these adventures with his love of photography.
