About Jim


Thank you for stopping by!

I’ve been a professional photographer for over 20 years. As a professional actor and aspiring author, I know what artists look for in their head shots, backgrounds, and even family photos. I am also accomplished at wedding and nature photography.

I grew up in gorgeous Southern California, traveled the world as a Marine, and settled for 20 years in beautiful, wet Western Washington, where I met my lovely wife. She then dragged me (cheering and whooping) to Fabulous Las Vegas, where we reside today.

My wife, Mélanie Hope, is a professional speaker and prolific author. She trusts me with her headshots and author shots, which you will find in her books and all over the world.

We are a very creative family, right down to our operatic cat and spokesdog, Abigail. We love to travel and find amazing photography options everywhere we go.

From one artist to another, many happy clicks!
