James is a professional, published, award-winning, freelance photographer and recent graduate of Columbia College Chicago (where he received a B.A. in photography) who shoots commercial, portrait, fine art, wedding, and event aspects. Being a self-taught artist since eight years of age, immersing himself in this field only impacted his career with positivity. Beginning as an artist where his style was only known by family and a limited amount of friends, this expanded to an array of people through connections of friends and in professional fields. He enjoys capturing the world and the beauty it holds and shares with the inhabitants present.
