A little about James,
A lover of the film industry and all things visual and a comic fanatic, James brings his private interests and energy to bear on sessions that are, ultimately, equally dynamic and intimately personal, creating heroic imagery, no matter the subject.
As passionate as he is skilled, he can form a fast and fruitful bond on shoots, as Tom Cruise, Idris Elba, Daniel Craig, and Jason Statham would all attest.
James began his career shooting for legendary British style magazines The Face and iD. Fashion and portraiture and traveling: these were a few of his favorite things. Then the word of his talents spread across the Atlantic. He shot Moby and Bono for the cover of Spin. Then Metallica, Radiohead, and AC/DC for the cover for Rolling Stone. And so, the monthly commute from London to America shifted into a three-month temporary residence. When the US work offers piled up – and the lifestyle snared him – James relocated. He hasn’t looked back.
James lives in the U.S. with his wife, Elle Strauss, and their two daughters.
