About Me

Hi, I’m James. Thanks for visiting! I am a multi-award winning fine art landscape photographer and photo educator based in Colorado Springs, Colorado. My love of photography started back in 1965 when my dad bought me a Kodak Instamatic camera for my 8th birthday. After I had my first roll of film developed, I was hooked! I started my professional career in photography in 1978 with my first assignment for the National Park Service in Utah. In the ‘80s I was primarily shooting with a Linhof Technika 4x5 view camera throughout California, and after various 35mm film cameras through the ‘80s and ‘90s, the revolution of digital photography hit me. Although my first few DSLRs were limited by the newness of the technology, I still forged onward up to the Nikon D850 I use today.PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS:
