Welcome to my website, my name is James and I am lucky enough to make the pictures you can see here!
I have a multi-faceted career. I acted through childhood and after school, I worked as a theatre technician for seven years in London's West End. I then returned to acting and now perform regularly with long running improv company, Sprout.
I write poetry and have published several books. Additionally I am a professional photographer and I teach improv.
The images on this site evolved out of photography. For as long as I've taken photos (about 20 years now), I've played with colour, shape and light and taken steps on a computer to highlight, reimagine and reform these elements. Each image you see here may have started as a photo of a simple object and through many steps, sometimes taking years, have evolved to what you can see now.
From 11th November to 17th December 2019 my art was on the walls of iconic independent cinema, Genesis.
With special thanks to Gabby Kere of gabbykere.com for making this happen, and to Genesis for curating and hosting me and this exhibition.
The images convey movement and light, the very things that make a huge part of the cinema experience.
It was a great delight and honour to see my work on these walls and hear and witness people's reactions to the art. A special experience.
