Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org James is originally from Yorkshire but has been based in London now for over 6 years working in the film industry. His passion for film began at the age of 14 through the love of photography using 35mm film cameras, dodging and burning for hours on end under the Red lights of the dark rooms. James went on to study his BA (Hons) in photography at Northumbria University and this was when he realised that he wanted to see something more. After years of on set experience James studied his MA in cinematography under the tuition of masters of the art such as Nick Morris BSC and David Schwartz. Since then James has grown in his profession confidently using many types of cameras, lenses and lighting, always achieving the look he and the Director are going for. James has worked on many music videos, commercials, documentaries, TV series, short films and feature films.Locked Pro Plan feature
