about James.

I'm James, a freelance digital artist and I've been in this amazing industry for 15+ years.  Always as a retoucher, sometimes as a portrait studio owner, studio manager, photographer, videographer, colorist and less often as a programmer, teacher, innovator.  I worked for a couple of family-owned portrait studios and learned all about lighting, editing, selling and the business of portrait photography.  Then I opened a studio of my own, employed four other photographers and edited all of their work.  For the last seven years I've been totally freelance and have a client list of many dozens of portrait, commercial and wedding photographers.

My family and I are digital nomads.  We've sold our possessions, rented out our house in Southern Indiana and travel the world.  For most of 2021, my wife, three daughters and I were bouncing around South America, living in Air B&Bs, working out of cafes and co-working spaces, homeschooling, seeing amazing places and meeting wonderful people. Currently, we live in Porto, Portugal and intend to stay indefinitely.

As a side hustle, I work in Logistics for Ryder/General Motors where I'm keeping my right brain busy learning an entirely different skillset.
