About Me

Thanks for stopping by—and happy 2021!  I've been on this site for a while.  I'm a former professional photographer; I'm here to make some art.

I like to shoot images that are similar to what you'll see in my port--especially art nudes, studio nudes, and athletics.  I'm also fine with working your ideas into the plan. 

My availability for shoots in metro Seattle:  Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings after 6:30 pm to whenever.  Availability in other locations varies based on travel.  I have a rather busy day-job; I can schedule out about a week in advance and am fine with short notice if it falls within the above parameters.  I normally run casting calls in areas to where I’ll be traveling when I’ll have availability to shoot.

I enjoy shooting in hotels, studios, and private residences.  I'll occasionally schedule an outdoor shoot, but that can be challenging in metro Seattle.

I shoot a mix of natural light, studio light, and flash.  Most of my images receive minimal retouching.  I like models to arrive camera-ready; here's a short video produced by Model Mayhem that covers the basics of makeup:

I use a standard model release form, with the usual, standard 18+ ID verification required--so you'll need to bring your government-issued ID to the shoot for verification, even if you're 101. 

Please feel free to bring your escort:  male, female, Bigfoot, or your mom (yes, that’s actually happened a few times) to the location to meet me, and thoroughly check things out prior to the shoot. If you're bringing an escort, I prefer your escort to not be staying for the shoot; we can chat about it if that’s important to you, but please bring it up early in the conversation as I'm interested in knowing who your escort will be.  Please note the significant amount of solid five-star feedback in my profile. 

I'm polite, easy to deal with, and respectful.  I prefer to deal with people who are similarly aligned.   

I keep track of people via email and would appreciate either staying on this site for the purpose of scheduling a shoot, or switching to regular email after we've established a dialog here.  I've had excellent success scheduling shoots completely through this site. 

Please note that I don't use text, phone, Facebook, Instagram, or other sites/apps to book or confirm shoots.

"Jim was a fun, personable, and very professional photographer that I was pleased to meet for the first time. I was made to feel comfortable from the moment I arrived to his set, which was already fully setup with lighting and cameras ready to go. Throughout the shoot he was creative in matching great perspectives with poses that he let me take the lead with. I truly hope to shoot again in the future!" Read less

"I invited Jim to my house for an evening photo shoot. He arrived on time, we explored the house, and then shot a handful of sets in two hours. Jim is super duper respectful, and gave me a lot of the creative control of the shoot. I would highly recommend working with him!" Read less
