Hi, I'm James and I was supposed to be a potato farmer.
No, seriously. My family has been in the potato business going on 110 years, and it's where I spent my summers growing up (see photos below). How did I go from potato farming to photography? My dad (potato farmer extraordinaire), always seemed to have a camera with him no matter where we went. No event went undocumented. The same desire to capture the world and people around me led me to pursue a career in photography.
In 2010, I started my photography business in Durham, NC. Since that time I made a stop in College Station, TX and now call Edmond, OK my home. I specialize in weddings, family portraits, commercial and real estate photography.
