Wildlife, Landscape and Conservation Photographer
Jami grew up in New Hope, Pennsylvania with an educational background in Psychology. Spending most of her time outdoors, she is an avid adventurer (climber, cyclist, skier, runner, hiker) having spent a lot of time in the mountains. She has always felt more comfortable outside in nature than anywhere else carrying tremendous passion for wildlife and wild places.
When Jami first picked up a camera in her mid-20s, it was only a matter of time until she was photographing wildlife and landscapes full-time as a professional nature photographer. Jami has been photographing for over 30 years and loves it as much today as she did when she bought her first analog camera.
Jami’s work focuses on conservation issues, endangered species and fragile habitats. She travels worldwide working on projects that contribute to the awareness of current conservation issues. She has published in books, calendars, magazines and newspapers worldwide. She believes that visual imagery is a powerful tool and influencer of human behavior.
When not traveling internationally, Jami travels around the United States giving talks and slideshow presentations about photography, wildlife, and acute conservation challenges. Upon invitation, she is happy to speak to schools, private groups or organizations about her work and projects.
Living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Jami and photographer husband Theo Allofs, put their cameras away and spend as much time as they can at home.
