About JJ

I’m JJ— an Artist & Photographer in Virginia, USA who does volunteer work with my art & photography.  I am also a Doobert Driver/Transporter since 2016, and currently studying to become an ARPA Certified Transporter. I owned my own photo studio in the 90’s. Today I use my art and photography in many volunteer style capacities.  I come to you sharing my personal thoughts and experiences (unless otherwise noted), in my own words (again, unless otherwise noted).  You can always see what I’m up to personally at BlueJImagery.com
