About Me

I dont always see messages from MM, so hit me up on facebook:
or check out my IG:

Update*:  Focusing on Artistic work at the moment. Not really looking for glamour jobs at this time (Currently in Central Michigan, will travel to Ohio)

I’m a 42 yr old Self taught Artistic/Glamour Photographer, shooting about 20 years now.  I am originally from Michigan, moved to Ohio (in the mid 90's) and started my work as a photographer.  I work in Las Vegas NV, Tampa FL and Columbus OH.  For people interested in hiring me, I have very reasonable rates.  I am a little picky who I do TFP or TFCD shoots with, so if you want to do a TFP/CD set e-mail me with a description of your vision.  I'm an inspired shooter and I prefer to have some theme when going into a shoot.  I have little to no experience shooting male models.  I’ve tried a few times but to me.. it felt like I was shooting for J.C. Penny's or something.. My strengths are shooting Female models and making them sexy whether shooting fashion glamour or whatever.

Hopefully I will meet some artistic people and create some cool looking work in the near future.

"James has an amazing eye for capturing the raw beauty of the female form. His outdoor nude work is some of my favorites and I am so happy that I had the opportunity to work with him twice during his stay in Columbus! Our shoots were very laid back and relaxed, and we created many images worthy of publication! I would definitely say yes to another shoot opportunity next time he passes through Columbus." Read less
