An award-winning photographer and director specializing in still life and products, Jim brings an artist's eye and an enthusiast's passion to his work. He strives to capture the pared-down essence of his subjects, rather than impose a false sense of beauty upon them. The viewer is invited to enjoy an often-inanimate object for its stark simplicity or quiet quality. Jim is a consummate professional with 20+ years of industry experience. His easy-going attitude and sense of humor ensure that clients not only receive top-quality work, but also enjoy the process.
Clients include: Apple, Nike, Jockey, The Clorox Companies, adidas, Simpson Strong-Tie, Ann Sacks Tile, Hoka One One, Haworth, Soy Vay, New Seasons Market, Reebok, Weight Watchers, Sodexo, Sherwin Williams, Jordan, Keen, Kinfolk, Field & Stream, Outside, Money, Sunset and Audubon Society. Agencies include: Wieden&Kennedy, McKinney, Kayser&Co., AKQA, TBWA, Kamp Grizzly, North, J.Schmidt.
Jim's collections are featured in Austin Radcliffe's book "Things Organized Neatly" published by Universe/Rizzoli in 2016, the definitive volume for this direct and timeless style of photography. Jim's Barrette Collection image is showcased on the cover.
