...Since Jim has been able to pick up a Crayon, he has fancied himself an artist. He spent his teens and twenties with a pencil and paintbrush...but discovering the medium that would prove to be his calling would take a few years...

...Jim worked as a mechanical designer for 9 years, while painting, sculpting on the side searching for the artistic medium that he could scrape out a living with... 

Jim

...At 27, Jim found photography by way of a girlfriend who not only bought him his first camera, but also provided him with his first model. Jim became obsessed, this combination of art and gadgetry suited Jim perfectly. Within a year, he quit his job and has been behind the camera nonstop ever since. At 45 Jim has been at his craft for 18 years...

...Jim's unique combination of artistic talent and passion for technology has made him a great image producer, particularly known for his exceptional lighting, creativity and computer wizardry. Jim's prowess behind the camera, and love of the female form, earned him a reputation shooting fashion, beauty, lingerie, and fine art nudes...

...This reputation caught the attention of an agent who sent his portfolio to Playboy headquarters in Chicago. This stroke of luck helped define Jim's style and direction.

This set the stage that paved the way for Jim's reputation as one of America's premier pinup photographers. The knowledge Jim gained with Playboy, coupled with his art and fashion experience has made quite a versatile imagist out of Jim...refusing to be "pigeonholed" Jim prides himself in versatility and remaining on the cutting edge of technology. ...Currently the bulk of Jim's workload is mainstream advertising campaigns, catalog, fashion editorials, product, cosmetics, and music business promotional media.

Jim's images and ads, editorials have been published in, Cosmopolitan, Harpers Bazaar, Playboy, InStyle, Men's Health, Elle, Time, Newsweek, Us, Penthouse, Lucky, Seventeen, Men's Health, Men's Journal, Us News, Maxim, Men's Fitness, Martha Stewart's Kids, Women's Health and Fitness and Billboard to name a few....not to mention pinup pubs worldwide.

 

...Jim shot his first film project 10 years ago. A short he wrote, directed, and shot on 16mm film. Today, a significant portion of Jim's workload is film projects and music videos. He typically sees the project through from conception, set design, lighting, directing and shooting the film, then finally, editing the project...

...These days, Jim spends as much time behind a computer as a camera. Creating digital still and motion pictures with a computer, designing to the clients wishes or maybe just his, depends on the day...
