My name is James Carnegie. I’m a Jerseyman living on the Jurassic Coast of the United Kingdom, drawn toward the remote, open landscapes which an Island 9 miles long sometimes struggled to provide, inspite of it’s raw beauty. Photography has been my calling for over two decades. Despite the addition of motion content and creative production to my one-arrowed quiver (and the warning signs that the industry is moving on), I refuse to believe there won’t be a place 20 years from now for well crafted, still imagery that conveys emotion. In keeping with the front cover quote, I shoot to make people feel something; to carry them with me to some wild, exotic and remote place. This should be sufficient background knowledge for you to bookmark my website for future collaboration. If not, delve further via the links below. Clients include Volvo, Timberland, Red Bull, Nike, Adidas, Strava, Saucony, Merrell and more.

- Cayman AdventuresCreating a package of motion and stills assets which showcase the breadth of adventure on offer in the Cayman Islands, with a former Olympic athlete in tow, is up there on the dream assignment list. Shooting underwater in crystal seas whilst a fever of Stingray's slap their wings in the camera lens is a problem I will gladly handle again, should it arise. Losing a drone to the Sargasso Sea is pretty much the worst thing that befell myself and the small crew I assembled for this Campaign, which
- Winter Warriors for Visit JerseyDiscover how to love winter this year with Sophie Hellyer – founder of #RiseFierce retreats. This winter warrior doesn't retreat an inch in the cooler season.
