Over the past few years, I have developed my photography skills in an effort to improve my cinematography. I grew my Instagram Page (@James_Films) to 17K+ followers and continue to post the photographs and digital artwork I create. My work has attracted the attention of major brands, like Adobe, who have reached out to work with me on advertising campaigns. My photography and artwork regularly hit the frontpage of Reddit, including this snowy photo, this coffee cup edit, this rare view of an empty Santa Monica beach, and this tilt-shift photo of Paris. I use photography as a medium to capture my dreams in a viewable form to share with the world. I am always open to new collaborations with brands and fellow photographers/artists. Feel free to reach out to me via email here:

Latest Work

I work in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Up until the end of November, 2018 I shot my photography exclusively with a Canon EOS Rebel T2i/550D modded with Magic Lantern Firmware. Just recently, I switched over to the Sony a7RII and have been using this camera ever since. Shooting with a Canon EOS Rebel T2i/550D forced me to hone my editing skills in order to bring back detail and color. I have begun developing tutorials for YouTube to teach others how I create my photography. Below are some of my recent pieces. I live for low light photography.
