Completely self taught James runs one of Mornington Peninsula’s longest standing Photography studios since 2001 and has been voted in the top 10 Melbourne wedding photographers. Master Photographer James also runs melbournephotoworkshops.com.au. From about the age of 19 my photography obsession began. At the time a girlfriend handed me a Minolta SLR and from then on I was hooked. I began collecting images from my Mums French vogue fashion magazines, frequenting antique book stores in search of landscape and architecture published works.
I am inspired by minimalism and more recently fine art architecture. Creating my pieces takes hours of work and is almost like painting, where with the use of light I help direct the viewers attention. I strive to show the sheer power of modern day buildings using angles and subtle lighting. Natural timeless Fine Art wedding photography is also a large part of James work. When he’s not photographing his addictions are Coffee, running, exercising, walking his pooch and being the perfect husband and Dad to 2 wonderful boys.
