Jim has a unique take on portraiture. He will come into your office or organization and shoot high-quality individual or group portraits against the backdrop of your choice. Images appear on a wide-screen laptop as Jim shoots, allowing you to make adjustments in pose, expression or anything else. This way, you know that you are getting exactly the portrait you want. Jim also owns a 3000 square foot studio in the heart of Historic Ybor City, Florida where he specializes in portrait, fashion, glamour, and pin up photography. Jim has helped countless number of models start their portfolio and he creates comp cards for new models.
Own's a full commercial studio space in the heart of Ybor City, Florida. Full wardrobe and make up are plus hundreds of props!
One of Jim’s strengths is his facility with digital retouching tools. He can do anything from subtly tweaking the colors of an image to full-blown masking and compositing. When you hire Jim to shoot an assignment, he retouches the best images from the shoot and includes these on disc along with all of the unretouched images. This allows you to immediately use the best images in print or on the web, while still having the freedom to use any image from the shoot.
I am also the lead photographer and co owner for http://www.yborhotties.com
