The Photo Jeepers Story

Dave and Jamie, Photo Jeepers at Canyonlands Needles

A few years ago, David retired as a Utah Highway Patrol trooper after 22 years.

He was rewarded with TWO retirement gifts: a Nikon DSLR camera and trading in his red Wrangler X Jeep for a brand new Mustang GT!

After a year, the excitement of the Mustang just wasn’t enough and he felt something was missing. The Jeeps at the local dealership kept calling his name and soon the Mustang was traded in for an AEV modified Jeep Sahara Unlimited.

Our lives have never been the same.

We are David and Jamie, a husband wife team who live in a suburb of Salt Lake City, Utah. With the help of our trusty Jeep, we explore the cities, towns, farms, parks, mountains, deserts and amazing National Parks around us.

Our favorite DESTINATIONS are the US National Parks. We hope to visit all 59 in the next few years.

For us travel and photography go hand-in-hand. We created Photo Jeepers to help you Capture the Adventure & Document the Journey of your travels.

We record our trips in photographic and written form so you can benefit from our experience: information gained, lessons learned and tips for travel and photography.

As you get to know David, you learn he is an active person with a fascination for the outdoors and the creatures that reside there. As a child in Alabama and South Carolina, he would be out in the woods running along creeks and rivers, enjoy trips to beaches and the Appalachian Mountains.

During his years as a Utah Highway Patrol State Trooper, David received significant amounts of training and experience related to driving. He is the obvious choice to be the main driver for all our Jeep adventures.

He can tackle any terrain in the Jeep, but seems to gravitate toward water and mud.

Dave’s first training in photography was obtained through the Utah Highway Patrol for the purpose of photographing accident and crimes scenes. He firmly believes that one of the most basic concepts in photography is to photograph what you love. He enjoys capturing landscape and wildlife images.

Dave shares photography tips and techniques about various locations we visit. He provides tips about travel photography gear and equipment necessary to capture amazing images.

When you get to know Jamie, you learn she needs things to be organized and she enjoys lists. She admits to being OCD about organization – she rearranges the dirty dishes in the dishwasher after the kids have loaded it!

Her organizational skills are utilized to research and plan all travel. Jamie creates detailed itineraries and keeps us focused during our adventures. She enjoys sharing planning and packing tips and travel resources to help others.

In high school, Jamie was active in Future Business Leaders of America and served as the State Historian for two years which required her to photograph and document events and activities. During her tenure in this organization she had the opportunity to travel to many locations across the United States which instilled within her a passion and appreciation for exploring unfamiliar places.

During college, Jamie participated in the study abroad program in Israel and Egypt. Each country offered numerous historical sites to discover where she learned to stop, pause and reflect at each destination. She came to understand the importance of recording moments, not recaps.

Jamie’s background in business makes her the perfect one to maintain the website and manage the business.

We make a wonderful team.
