He has worked with Enclave Equities, JLL and photographed the St. Joseph's College Sports Facility in East Patchogue, NY.
James began photographing homes in 2004 after hiring a professional photographer to photograph a home that he was selling. The disappointment in the quality of photos and lack of professionalism that he encountered inspired James to begin photographing homes. One year later he began his real estate photography career. Shortly thereafter he stopped selling homes but it was that experience that helped him understand what shots are needed to spark the interest of potential buyers.
Specializing in interiors and architectural photography, James has spent years learning and mastering his craft. He is an expert in Photoshop and has followed and studied the work of the premier photographers in the industry. James is a specialist in off camera lighting which enables him to customize the lighting in every space that he shoots therefore creating the perfect exposure. Additionally he specializes in "elevated" photography which enables him to capture spectacular views of homes and their beautiful surroundings. James was the October 2013 Photography for Real Estate Photographer of the month in the elevated real estate photo competition.
James holds a Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree from SUNY at Stony Brook and speaks fluent Spanish. Aside from photographing homes James enjoys spending time with his wife and two young boys.
