I Am the owner of www.imkingjames.com. I Am very fortunate. A friend asked me to take photographs for his luxury men’s clothing line, HIM Defined, and was impressed with my eye. Later I was asked to film a celebrity who was styled in his clothing. From there word of my skill spread and I began to be in demand. I put my time in doing free work building my resume and enhancing my brand. I quickly realized this was a blessing and reached further than photography. I was given access to influential people and gained their friendship, endorsement, and business.
I have photographed many celebrities in a short span of time. International Icons like Spike Lee, Pamela Bach Hasselhoff, KRS-One, Public Enemy, MC Lyte, Michael Bernard Beckwith- Founder of Agape International Ministries and featured in the ‘Secret’.
Last season I photographed Jazmine Sullivan, Fabolous, Yandy Smith, Sandra Woodley, Carmen Elektra, designer Christopher Lee Sauve at Sponsored by Paris Hilton during Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week.
At Philadelphia Fashion Week. I photographed designer Dom Streeter, winner of season 12 of ‘Project Runway’. Along with Taylor Coleman, star of ‘Preachers Daughters’ and celebrity stylist Kia Sterling.
Other celebrities include Raelia Lewis of America’s Next Top Model season 21, Yasha (platinum German music artist), Fuzzy Rankins (Grammy Winning Guitarist), Meek Mill, Lilly Ghalichi, Naughty by Nature, Special Ed, Big Daddy Kane, Charlie Mack, and many more.
My business is growing to expand connecting business owners with celebrities. I also photograph weddings, vacations, events, and celebrity for the day extravaganzas that include birthday parties, anniversaries and monumental life achievements.
