Jamie Schwaberow – CEO/Owner Clarkson, Creative
Jamie Schwaberow is the CEO of Clarkson Creative (based in Denver, CO) and Director of Photography for NCAA Photos (since 2001). Growing up in Ohio, Jamie loved sports and dreamt of becoming a journalist. His life changed when he took an internship at the Olympics in Atlanta. He has covered Democratic and Republican National Conventions and has worked at the Columbus Dispatch and Boston Herald. His talents quickly led him to become more engrained in Sports Photography and covering some of the biggest sporting events in the world which includes over 200 NCAA national championships, the College Football Playoffs, the World Series & the Super Bowl.
After the Olympics, Jamie would find himself meeting the legendary photographer Rich Clarkson of Clarkson Creative who was largely responsible for steering his career to the success story it is today. Having served at the agency since 1999, Jamie became the CEO/Sole Owner of Clarkson Creative in 2019. He has been published in worldwide publications such as Sports Illustrated, the New York Times, Time Magazine and ESPN The Magazine.
Jamie’s presentation will provide content for everything from March Madness to the Colorado Rockies season. (Yes, Duke, UNC and Clemson fans he has images of incredible championship game moments!) In addition, he will describe creative ways he kept photography/journalism going in spite of the Pandemic.
