Hi. My name is James and I am the owner and principle photographer of Dodge & Burn Studios. Thank you for taking the time to look around my site and at my portfolio.
I love my job. I have the opportunity to capture families together, playing, having fun, and laughing. I get to see some of a baby's first moments during their newborn session, and put mom and dad at ease while preserving some of those precious moments forever. And I help couples remember that special day for the rest of their lives: the day they said "I do".
My goal is to make each session comfortable and fun. I believe people make a great photo - not the props - but I love incorporating items that are special and important to a family. Not every photo needs be posed - some of the best photos come from natural moments. I like to create a situation where we have fun and happen to be taking pictures too.
I have been a photographer since I got my first camera when I was seven years old, but I have been working in studios since 1998. In 2011, I had the opportunity to venture out on my own. I started Dodge & Burn Studios and I have loved every minute since.
I enjoy what I do, and I think you'll see it shows in the photos I create. I love meeting new people, making new connections, and creating beautiful works of art. I guarantee that when you hire me, we will have fun and you will love your photos.
But don't take my word for it.
Take a look at what some of my clients have to say HERE.
Thanks again for stopping by. I hope we have the chance to work together soon.
