Camille Blinn

Camille Blinn has been a photographer for almost twenty years. She moved to Manhattan at age 20 to work in fashion photography, assisting in photo shoots for campaigns including Neiman Marcus and Target. During her years in New York, Camille’s focus shifted to travel photography which sent her around the world as a photojournalist for multiple humanitarian aid organizations. Ms. Blinn has traveled to many parts of Indonesia, including Bali, Jakarta and Java; Lima and multiple cities in Peru; as well as Northern Ireland, and many cities throughout England and France.  Camille’s work in music photography brought her back to her hometown of Nashville; her list of clients include Aerosmith, LeAnn Rimes, Wynonna Judd, Matthew West, Steven Curtis Chapman, and many more. She has done campaigns and promotional shoots for many organizations including Yamaha Corporation, The Doorpost Film Project, The One Campaign, The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and most recently she worked as a photojournalist for I Am Second, traveling to Washington DC with the Executive Director, documenting the work that the organization is doing in the nations capitol. Camille’s work has even been featured in “Exploring Black and White Photography” by Professor Joy McKenzie, a college textbook for photography students.  

These days, Camille’s focus has come back to where it started: family. Her first photoshoot (at age 15) was of her mom, and by age 17 she was shooting her first wedding. Having shot hundreds of family portraits and weddings over the years, Camille feels blessed to have contributed, in any way she can, to the strength and unity of family. Camille married her husband, Jesse, in 2010 and they have two daughters, Lucy and Adaline.
