James is an internationally published, award-winning photographer based in Richmond, Virginia. He built his reputation and initial portfolio on action sports photography and has worked with youth, collegiate, and professional leagues. His action sports work has been featured in the USL, EPL, NBC Sports, and the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Over the past few years, his lens has been primarily focused on travel, tourism, commercial, and portrait and headshot work. Not everything translates into a beautiful image with a traditional aesthetic – and James doesn’t shy away from those shots. Sometimes a unique perspective or detail creates a more powerful picture. Those are the photos that are worth waiting to capture.
Many of these powerful, unique images have been published and shared in print, web, and social media platforms. James’s images of cityscapes and landscapes have been featured by Southern Living, CBS, NBC, Virginia Tourism, Kentucky Tourism, and Indiana Tourism.
His commercial portfolio of marketing and event photography clients includes The Richmond Symphony, Capital One, ISL Futbol/FC Barcelona Escola, the Richmond Kickers, and the Flying Squirrels. Promotional images adorn City Stadium and the Diamond in Richmond. His work has also accompanied a variety of articles in Richmond Grid.
James has also enjoyed working with non-profit organizations such as World Pediatric Project, The Next Move Program, ACLU, The Byrd Theatre Foundation, EnRichmond, CapABLE, Higher Achievement, and The Richmond Pitbull Project.
