About James

An intuitive photographer with a keen eye in seeing photogenic potential, his work is influenced by day dreams and cinematic imagery. Fashion photography is a more challenging art form than other forms of fixed subject photography. With fashion photography, working with models is a challenge when you are trying to get the right emotion from the model as well as the clothing and location. Working with new faces or under-developed models is even more of a challenge.As a former fashion model himself, He has been in the fashion industry since he was 15.

“I began to work as 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 “someone I know who is a photographer”. 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. So many people have potential but they do not receive the development nor direction that they need to have that look brought out through photography. I envision a shoot as an art, not just taking a photo. I am able to create art that can tell a story as well as look beautiful in print.”

James is open to working with models just starting out or for new faces for model agencies including IMG Models, Next Model Management, Elite Model Management, Ford Models, Wilhelmina Models, MC2 Models, Mega Models, Michele Pommier Models, Major Models, Why Not Models, and Fashion Models, Front Management, and Runways the Talent Group.
