Kerry James - Photography

Kerry James’ passion, creativity, and love for photography started at the age of six when he literally harrased his father for days to purchase a polaroid handle camera, which he still has to this day. That was some thirty years ago, today Kerry's passion and desire for creating, lighting, and capturing amazing images still burns as strong as it did in that little boy so many years ago.  After a professional career in the retail fashion industry, it was a natural progression for him to bring together his passion for both worlds together as a professional photographer. His experiance in retail fashion gives him a very unique way to see and capture fashion, and beauty photography.
