At 13, James hiked the Dorset coast path from Golden Cap to Ballard Down, taking pictures with a small automatic camera. That journey took 4 days but has had a far longer term impact on his life.

James also holds a doctorate in entomology, having spent 4 years studying size variation in bumblebee workers. Although loving ecological research, he has found the pull of photography too great to ignore.

His chosen subject matter covers a broad range, but is generally confined to the natural world, focussing particularly on trees and landscapes, both coastal and inland.

James has enjoyed great critical and commercial success exhibiting his work during Dorset Art Week ‘06 and ‘08, and is currently exhibiting in the Trowbridge Gallery, Castle Cary, Somerset, on an indefinite basis. Come and have a look!
