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 five years I've been totally freelance and have a client list of many dozens of portrait, commercial and wedding photographers.

I live in southern Indiana with my wife and three daughters.  Interests include hanging with the family, traveling, reading/dreaming/chatting about business with friends over coffee in the morning or wine in the evening.

My wife and I have a couple of side-hustles.  For two years we've owned a coffee roastery serving restaurants and cafes regionally.  Also, late 2018 we started www.dewberrydesignco.com, a handmade jewelry company.
