I’m a Yorkshire lad but have been working between Manchester & London now for the past 8 years. Most of my work has been shot in the UK but I have been fortunate enough to have travelled the world doing what I love. Taking me to countries such as Diego Garcia, Costa Rica, Norway, Bahrain, Berlin, France & Spain.

Throughout my career I have shot commercials for The Royal Marines, Navy, Adidas, Unilever, Knorr, Porsche and many more.

Over the years I have grown in my profession using multiple cameras, lenses and lighting, this lead me to shoot award winning short films, commercials, documentaries, music videos and EPK’s.

“I had the pleasure of working with James on a production for The Royal Marines, which saw us filming in the most remote of locations. He was an absolute star and a pleasure to be around. The job was challenging and at times far from ideal, yet he was such a positive force. You need people like that when the (metaphorical) bullets are flying. I wholeheartedly recommend James and thoroughly enjoyed working with him, I’m sure if you book him you will too”.  – Executive Producer Bradley Woodus: ENGINE
