James began his photographic career in the early 1970's beginning as a photographer's assistant in Toronto, then moved to New York City where he worked his way up from a dark room assistant to first assistant, eventually earning his own assignments and testing his skills in many disciplines including fashion, product, food and editorial photography.
Splitting his time between Toronto and New York City, he had the opportunity to work with well-known and influential photographers. James developed a reputation for his black and white, natural light work and has been published in Canadian Doctor, Toronto Life Fashion, Interior Design, PhotoLife and The Globe and Mail and Toronto Star newspapers.
In the mid 1980's James moved to Paris, France where he worked on assignments as a stills & editorial photographer.
Today, living near Lake Simcoe, James has transitioned to digital cameras and artistic photography. He concentrates on landscape and abstract photography, highlighting the fusion of color and light of the natural world around him. His goal is to convey tranquility in his images and offer new perspectives on nature.
James' work is found in private collections in: Paris - France, New York City , Los Angeles - USA, Montreal - Vancouver - Toronto - Ottawa , Canada and the Greater Toronto areas of , Alliston, Cookstown, Bradford & Huntsville.
