We sat down for a quick chat with a very talented young photographer by the name of Lee James who is responsible for a lot of the images you see on our website and Instagram.
When did your interest in photography start? Was there anyone that influenced you to get started?
My interest in photography started at a very young age. I've been taking pictures and making home videos with my brothers for a very long time. Some of the first videos and photos I ever took are some of the most embarrassing things ever but also some of my favorite things I own.
What type of photography do you enjoy the most?
I really enjoy all different kinds of photography. But I really enjoy anything that tells a story and or gives the viewer a certain emotion when they look at the image.
How would you describe your personal style?
I would like to describe my personal style as a combination of documentary, lifestyle, landscape and portrait photography.
What is your favourite image from your work thus far? (we will include in post if you like also)
That is a hard question. I go back and forth all the time, but this photo I took of @rayraybird911 on top of a train at sunset is one of my favorites for sure.
What is your favourite weekend activity?
I love getting out and taking pictures and recording video! That is what I do, I love it! I also enjoy going camping and playing music, I play guitar and write my own music which I love doing as well.
Any advise for up and coming photographers?
Good Luck! There is no money in it these days in my experience. So you have to love it and have a genuine passion to create to be able to continue doing it.
