James has been working as a professional photographer since 2006. He began his photography career with one of Adelaide’s premier commercial photographers, working in advertising, product, architecture, food, jewellery, PR and event photography as well as post processing photo manipulation. He shot his first wedding as a favour to a friend while studying a double degree in mechanical engineering and product design. Little did he know that word of mouth would turn this favour into a full-time career, to the point he had to quit his product design job and only accept commercial photography work on weekdays!
James has the rare combination of a mechanical mind, which has allowed him to master the lighting and technical aspects of photography, and a genuine warmth and humour, that allows him to draw out and capture authentic moments of beauty amidst the hectic pace of a wedding. His skill behind the camera, combined with his personable approach, makes him one of the most highly regarded wedding photographers in Adelaide.
While James works predominantly in Adelaide, South Australia, he loves to travel and regularly takes on jobs interstate or overseas. Last year he took 348367 photographs.
