About Me

Hello I am Jim Johnson.  As a member of the USMC and US Dept. of State( Foreign Service), I have literally traveled around the world (80+ countries) and developed a real love of photography and creating beautiful images.  I have mostly worked in wildlife, urban and event fields, but recently started working with models and people.  I have invested in a place in Benton, KY and opened my own studio.  I am looking for clients who are professional and serious about making beautiful images and hoping to get more work published.  I enjoy trying new things and willing to take on challenges in all genres.  I enjoy using Photoshop and using green screen techniques for creating advanced scenes and images as well.  Looking forward to working and collaborating with all of you on many exciting projects.

"Jim is one of the most talented photographers I've ever worked with. Incredible with the photography and with the editing of the photos. He is also an extremely nice guy and makes you feel like your modeling is appreciated and is art rather than exposure. After shooting a few times over the course of one weekend, he feels more like a friend than a photographer." Read less

"I had come across Jame's work on MM. I really liked his work , so I emailed him and we set up a shoot. His studio is awesome and huge, well put together , and organized. He has everything you need, a dressing room, cold beverages and food, and the expertise to capture "hot shots".... I enjoyed shooting outdoors more , more character, more of a story within in the pictures. James is very professional, and doesn't waste the models time. I would gladly shoot with him again in the future. His specialty: eye for detail, with the lighting , reflections, etc. He will not snap a pic, until its right , and he will take samples, to check."
