NICE PEOPLE SAYING NICE THINGS ABOUT ME...
Every Creative Director needs a James in their life!
Roj Whitelock Managing Partner, Jacob Bailey UK
I have worked with James for a number of years, first shooting stills campaigns and then transitioning into video, and the thing that stands out about him the most, is that he is a part of our team not just an external supplier. More than that, he is a creative component, who adds to the idea, and is prepared to go way above to get the job done.
Up for a challenge, whether that is trying to get the impossible shot, or over delivering to tight client budgets, James is always looking to push the boundaries of the creative brief, and collaboration is key with him.
He is a pleasure to work with, and it is even more of a pleasure to push him.
Tony Sikand-Parada Group Creative Director, ThinkBDW
As a new brand, founded by two brothers without any fashion industry experience, it was essential that the photographer we hired for our launch shoot not only had exceptional skill behind the camera but also the ability to manage all aspects of the shoot. James delivered on both counts!
It's obvious from his portfolio that James takes exceptional photos that showcase the product and tell the brand story. What was just as impressive, however, was the time he took before the shoot to understand our brand and our requirements, drawing on his many years of experience when advising us on the overall approach, model choice and location selection.
On the day of the shoot itself he superbly marshalled his team and - despite working to a challenging schedule - surpassed our expectations.
Would we want James to photograph future campaigns for us? The answer is a resounding YES!
Stephen and Peter Co-founders, Bocka Bocka
James is not only a highly creative beauty, fashion and lifestyle photographer, he is innovative and passionate about his work. A thoroughly great guy!
John Allen Freelance Art Buyer and Creative Producer, TBWA/MCR
I have collaborated with James on several occasions and as well as being a pleasure to work with he has brought a wealth of creative ideas and experience to the table, turning concepts I have shared with him into reality, in a way that I could never have imagined. He has the ability to set the whole team at ease and make everyone feel comfortable in his presence, getting the very best out of everyone involved.
His understanding of the lingerie industry is invaluable - he has innate understanding of product and how to make each piece look its very best in the quickest time possible.
Bok Goodall Creative Director and Founder Ms A London, My Size CIC
I have worked with James on a number of photographic projects in the last few years and am delighted with the results he has achieved for me. He is the consummate professional – great preparation and execution – and also good at thinking on his feet with workable solutions when a problem arises. He always comes up with new ways of achieving our aims and keeping our photographic pages fresh and original.
James is a creative asset to our business in a very competitive world of print publishing.
