Photographer, Director, Publisher, Videographer
Gregory James is a award-winning commercial photographer/director published worldwide with advertising and editorial. Recognized by top publishers, advertising agencies and editor-in-chiefs as one of the worlds leading photographers in his industry. With over tens of thousands of his images published and hundreds of covers later he still sees himself just as a guy with a camera who takes pictures for a living.
For the past decade he has been the Chief/Senior Photographer for several of the leading publishing companies around the globe. Shooting anywhere from Fashion, Weddings, Products, Advertising, Architecture, Interiors, Food, Editorial Layouts, Beauty, Fitness and Bodybuilding, to filming and directing videos for web series and mainstream commercials. Gregory’s personal strengths are his attention to detail and his ability to understand light. His personal motto is that if you are going to be a professional commercial photographer you should be able to shoot anything that your clients hire you for.
At the beginning of his career he was lucky enough to get the experience of traveling the world with his wife Jessica shooting for various companies. Even though now Gregory is mostly recognized as a physique and fitness photographer, currently 90% of his time is still spent photographing fashion and products for advertising campaigns. Which he started out with at the beginning of his career for the first 10 years before getting into fitness.
When not behind the lens, James is a family man. He enjoys spending all of his time with his wife Jessica, their two beautiful and very energetic children and their crazy German Shepherd. They love going on day trips and spending the weekend in their RV and if they are not in their RV, they are spending the weekend on their boat.
