Michael James

Hi I'm Michael, I love to photograph people creatively both from my Portland Studio on Hayden Island, as well as in the various beautiful and scenic locations that the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

I consider myself and artist and photography and digital enhancement and manipulation are my medium of choice. Using creative lighting techniques and photoshop manipulation I create photos that transend that of typical portrait photography into works of art suitable for hanging on your walls that you willl be proud to share with your friends and family.

My photography work is also quite varied. My techniques and talents apply to everything from newborn photography, family photography, and business and event photography, as well as boudoir and intimate photography. I particularly enjoy when my clients get inspired by the creative production process and desire to create a shoot that is unique and inspiring.

I enjoy the process of creation, and I am adept at making people feel comfortable in front of my camera. So much so that my shoots become more about the experience and the photos are simply a by-product of that experience.
