Jamie Stewart


My interest in nature grew from early childhood memories of playing in the Wissahickon Creek and family vacations that focused on nature and the natural world. In 1995 I took my first birding trip to the Arctic. It was there that I was inspired to take up photography.

I have dedicated my time and talents to support local non-profit organizations that help to protect the environment. A former member of the Wissahickon Valley Watershed Association’s board of directors, I offer my photos for the Association to use to illustrate the mission of protecting the Wissahickon Creek by protecting open space within the Watershed.

Many of my photos were featured in the 2007 book, Wissahickon: Worth Preserving, a photographic tour of the Watershed. Encouraged by my friends to publish my photographs, I partnered with writer, Neree Aron-Sando, former Editor of the Ambler Gazette, to describe through stories and photographs the history, life and journey of the Wissahickon Creek as it flows from Montgomeryville to the Schuylkill River.
