  • Commercial Services – Studio & Lab

    James has devoted his life’s work exclusively to photography, but within this medium he has enjoyed a varied career, which has included many commercial assignments, photographing cosmetics, jewelry, food, furnishings, electronic equipment and art objects for large and small companies, and individuals entrepreneurs and artists. With this in mind he can creatively, quickly, effectively handle your photographic needs.

  • Couture Portraits

    Great portrait photography is a fine art. Fine Art Portraits become family heirlooms; they represent a likeness of the life, essence, and character, or reveal a story of the individual(s) being photographed. Most assuredly the final portrait will have a special and honored place designated for it to be displayed.

  • Portrait / Model + Prints

    I invite you to enjoy a beautiful portrait of yourself, your family and pet(s), taken in a comfortable state of the art studio that is completely dedicated to showing the subject in the best light. Getting the best results is a creative process and a fun experience for you and your family.

  • Wedding & Event Photography

    Whatever the event, photography for a wedding, corporate party, quince or other gathering requires a sixth sense of anticipation, knowing what to expect in advance, quick attention to details. These are skills built on talent and honed with experience. These events can also be frenetic, and a photographer with a confident yet calm demeanor is the one you will be most comfortable with.
