Jamie Rose’s speaking engagements usually are focused on training documentarians on photography and business workshops around the world in her role as COO of Momenta. However, we have asked her to share the story of how she went from a working photojournalist to running a successful company with a thriving community of alumni who dubbed themselves “The Momenta Family”.

In this unique and uplifting presentation, Jamie will share stories and images from her career spanning for than two decades in photography. Gain knowledgable insights on deciding when to take a big leap in your career, ways to build your network of peers and clients, and what it’s really like to work alongside of your spouse. Jamie will discuss her path on how she followed her passion and created a career path that fulfills both her creativity and her soul.

Jamie will share highlights from her portfolio as a Washington DC press corps photographer as well as her international humanitarian work. Jamie’s unique presentation style will allow you to engage with questions and answers throughout the presentation. We invite you to learn from her journey so you too can create the perfect niche for yourself in this industry. If you are a fan of the stories told on How I Built This or The Candid Frame, you will love this speaker event.
