Hey there! I'm James, photographer extraordinaire.

Just kidding, I'm

not that self-absorbed. Please allow

me to salvage this first impression by talking about myself some more:

I've been captivated by the natural beauty of our world from a young age, but I never did anything besides simply appreciate it...until one fateful day when I picked up a camera! Well, an iPhone, but still. From that point on, my love for photography has grown into an absolute passion that has expanded not only my visual perspective but my life perspective as well. Being behind the lens allows me to take a step back to become present & truly appreciate the endless wonder that surrounds us.

When we're working together, I am first a friend. While I do practice healthy professionalism each & every step of the way, I believe the best photos are produced when there's a casual & relaxed vibe between the photographer & the client. That way you can let your hair down, throw on that natural smile & let your light shine! Simply put, I try to create & capture joy wherever I may be.

Whatever the call for a photographer, it'd be an honor to capture the moment.

- James

Well, that's it for me. This has been great!

I'll leave you with a little inspirational quote:


A leader is not someone who says: ‘Follow me.’ A leader is someone who says: ‘I’ll go first.’
— Neale Donald Walsch

I don't think that quote is referring to Instagram though, so in that case, please follow me.
