My name is James. My work is influenced by day dreams and cinematic imagery. I am a very intuitive person with a keen eye in seeing a persons photogenic potential. Fashion photography is a more challenging art form to me than say landscape or architectural photography. You can be as creative as possible with a camera and find the right location as long as you have the ideas! But with fashion photography working with models is a challenge when you are trying to get the right emotion from the subject as well as the clothing and location. Working with new faces or under-developed models is even more of a challenge.
As a former model, I have been in the industry for about 18 years. After modeling, I began to work a scout as I had a keen eye for hidden beauty. When I became an agent, I was able to help new faces develop their "look". As an agent I was unsatisfied with the prints that the new faces were bringing in from local photographers". So instead of whining, I began to set up shoots in order to get the shot that would bring out what I saw in the models potential.
I sometimes travel outside my base cities often to Los Angeles & Mexico City but other cities as well.
