James and his wife, Maria.


James has lived and worked in New York for 19 years now.  He is a gallery represented Artist at Castle Fitzjohns Gallery in the Lower East Side.  You may have see some of his work on a Billboard, Subway, or Bus Shelter all around the 5 boroughs.   One of his favorite clients, the NYC Department of Health has been working with him for 4 years, creating campaigns that tackle such important social and health topics such as HIV/AIDS, PREP, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, and ALCOHOL / DRUG education and outreach.  

It fits James' personal love for in depth portraiture and shooting real people in the campaigns.  Portraiture is at the heart of his story telling.  Whether a quiet one on one video interview, or a fun day with a cast of a TV Series, James tries to get an honest portrait of the people he photographs/interviews.  

Video has become more of a main stay in his work as well with many clients asking to add motion to their projects.  In the social media world, video has become an ever important component of any Brand's advertising/marketing. 

James' personal work is made using his Anthony Imperial Climax 8x10 Camera and using the Wet Plate Collodion process that was invented in 1852.  The hand made images on metal and glass that are created using this process are one of a kind works of art and cannot be created in any other way.  His work has been exhibited at a number of Juried Exhibitions.  You can see his CV here:  CV

His Studio is located in the fashionable Hudson Yards Neighborhood on the edge of Hells Kitchen.  The Building was built in 1910 and was originally a Carriage House for horses.  He has filled it with select pieces of midcentury modern furniture and equipped it with the latest digital capture equipment and lighting systems.  You can see his studio here:  HUDSON YARDS LOFT
