Elko Business Headshots – Local Firefighter Jamey

Business Headshots Don’t Need to Be Boring

Who said business headshots need to be boring? One of the things I love most about my job is that I get to work with the most amazing people! I love hearing their stories. It is so rewarding to be able to capture how amazing people are! Being able to create a headshot session for this local firefighter was a FUN project and I can’t wait to share it with you!


Jamey is a local firefighter for our county. He is such a great guy! I know this because he is actually married to one my old high school friends (who was also my co-worker back in my teaching days).

Over the last year, we had casually been chatting about creating some fun business headshots for Jamey. He is a very busy guy when it comes to family, fire season, and even education! He is currently working on his paramedic degree! That is a lot on anyone’s plate! I was super excited to finally get him in our studio.

The Session

You have to see some of these images. Being able to watch Jamey as he geared up and talked about his line of work was amazing. I have always been grateful to firefighters because they truly are heroes. They sacrifice so much to be in a career of service. I wanted to share some of the images from his session. These first three matted portraits are my favorite. Actually, I love them all for so many different reasons! Check them out for yourself…

Family Behind the Firefighter

I love these next two images so much! Jamey brought his wife and son to his session. They were sitting off to the side watching him as he put different equipment on. In these next two images, Jamey is looking at his family. We sometimes forget that behind our hometown heroes are families. Their families make sacrifices too. Jamey isn’t just a firefighter. He is a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a friend. Behind every firefighter is a family who loves and supports them. Let’s face it, fire seasons have gotten horrible! Firefighters spend a great deal of time away from their families in efforts to protect and keep us safe. I am so glad I got to photograph Jamey for this session because I also got to capture how he looked at his family! Such a treasure!

These next few images are a little “behind the scenes” action. Jamey and his son share a moment here. Watching them together was a lot of fun. You can really tell his son is proud that his dad is a firefighter. He also couldn’t wait to have a turn trying on a few pieces of gear!

Reaching out for the gloves! Love this!

Big gear for a little fella!

This final image is a montage piece I created to showcase a few of Jamey’s images. It is the perfect piece for any wall! Montages are a great way to utilize several images and blend them into one art piece!
