Jami is an award-winning nature photographer focusing on conservation, endangered species and fragile habitats. She lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico and been photographing for over 30 years. She has been published in books, magazines and newspapers worldwide including National Geographic, Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Outside, The Guardian, Focus Germany, and Ranger Rick to name a few.

Jami travels worldwide to all continents working on projects that contribute to the awareness of current and acute conservation issues. She was one of the founders of Community Wildlife Fund, a non-profit organization established in Kenya whose objective is to protect wildlife from poaching and the bushmeat trade. CWF is also dedicated to the education of local communities in remote villages surrounding game reserves and national parks.

From 2016 - 2018, Jami worked on a project focusing on the negative impact of palm oil agriculture in Indonesia working with Dr. Birute Galdikas (Orangutan Foundation International) and Dr. Ian Singleton (The Orangutan Project / Sumatra Orangutan Conservation Programme). Today, she does slideshow lectures educating people about the effects of palm oil on wildlife and pristine habitats.

In 2018, she worked in a remote forest research camp with a research team following the newly discovered Tapanuli orangutan shortly after it was discovered in 2017. Tracking the Tapanuli orangutans in steep and muddy rainforests starting at 4:30 am (to reach their nests before they move) until 7:00pm (when they settle in to their new nest for the night) was one of the most physically challenging projects that she ever took on. She would gladly do it again!
