About Us

WHAT IS A PHOTO JEEPER?

Our story is about two people who love to explore new places, photograph landscape and wildlife, and how we became Photo Jeepers!

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

He was rewarded with TWO retirement gifts: a Nikon DSLR camera and a Jeep.

Our lives have never been the same!

We are Dave and Jamie, a husband wife team who live in a suburb of Salt Lake City, Utah.

For us travel and photography go hand-in-hand as we explore the cities, parks, mountains, deserts and amazing National Parks around us!

ABOUT DAVE

Dave is an active person who loves the outdoors!

As a child in Alabama and South Carolina, he would be out in the woods running along creeks and rivers. He loved family trips to beaches and the Appalachian Mountains.

Dave firmly believes that one of the most basic concepts in photography is to photography what you love!

He enjoys capturing landscape and wildlife images, especially bald eagles, bears and wolves.

ABOUT JAMIE

During high school and college, Jamie traveled across the United States, and participated in a study abroad program in Israel and Egypt. It sparked a passion and appreciation for exploring unfamiliar places.

Jamie came to understand the importance of recording moments, not recaps. She learned to stop, pause and reflect at each destination.

She admits to being OCD about organization and lists – she rearranges the dirty dishes in the dishwasher if it’s not “just right”.

This trait is perfect for researching and creating detailed itineraries for our trips.
