About James

My formal education in photography began when I enlisted in the United States Air Force. I completed basic training and was sent to Denver CO. and attended photography school. I graduated from photography school and spent the next five years in the USAF assigned as a photographer. I have also taken college courses in photography, Photoshop and InDesign. I have over 50 years experience in the photography field.

In addition to my military experience as a photographer, I was employed as a photographer and Crime Scene Investigator by the County Sheriffs Dept. I worked in this specialized area for over 10 years. During this period I was also responsible for setting up the color photography lab for the Sheriffs Dept. I retired from the department in 1998 as a Sergeant.

My teaching experience in photography includes teaching peers color photography and color photography darkroom and printing techniques. When digital photography became a viable alternative to traditional photography, I upgraded my skills by taking college classes in Photoshop. In 2007, I was asked to create a digital photography program and teach at a local high school. I taught digital photography and Photoshop for eight years and retired at the end of the 2014-2015 school year.

It was more or less a getting to know each other session. He was patient and willing to help me in learning how to shoot using manual mode.
