James started out as an Extreme Sports Photographer back in 1992. He worked his way up the ladder in the sports industry and photographed many of the world’s top athletes such as Nate Holland, Kip Garre, Nevelo Wile, Dan Pastor, and Shawn White, and clients such as Snow Park Technologies, DGI, HGTV, Slednecks and World X Games. He spent the next 11 years living his dream; snowboarding and traveling the world. After a life threatening skiing injury, he decided to take a break from the action and go back to school. In 2007, James graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, with a degree in Commercial Advertising Photography. He eventually returned back to his home of North Lake Tahoe where he currently resides with his wife and son. His work consists of Commercial Still Photography as well as Aerial and Motion Picture through the use of drones and custom made copters.
