James started shooting at a young age and furthered his studies with a BFA in photography. After graduating at the top of his class and working as a corporate photographer out west, he was offered the opportunity to work in NYC assisting some of the most prominent photographers and respected brands in the industry. Anthropologie, West Elm, Ralph Lauren and Target, to name a few. James' incredible eye for design has helped him transition from one style of shooting to another. His photography work ranges from the commercial to the fine art, having been featured in several gallery shows. His love for still photography made for an easy transition into working with moving images. He enjoys the artistic freedom found in shooting narratives and the element of story telling as a cinematographer. James has had the opportunity to join forces with some of the best shooters in the industry and has become part of a production team that continues to produce quality imagery with exceptional story telling. He's found that collaborating with a team of editors, shooters, and producers has increased his scope of ability and the size and scope of creative projects he is able to undertake. Currently based in Brooklyn, NY. James shoots freelance, traveling around the world. With several projects in the editing stages and with more planned projects James continues to look forward to exploring new ways of creative expression and furthering his voice.
