Portrait photography can be fun, relaxed, energetic or serious, it's up to you!


Melbourne, Frankston, Somerville and Mornington Peninsula Portrait Photographer



Portrait photography can be fun, relaxed, energetic or serious, It's up to you! It's all about capturing the real you at that moment in time.


How I make you comfortable in front of the camera

Most people freeze or become incredibly self conscious when a camera is pointed toward them so before I pick up my camera I spend time getting to know you, your personality and what makes you special. As you relax and feel comfortable I will find out why are you having the portrait. I will talk to you about bringing out your best features and how a camera will capture them. I will show you a few tips that professional models know and use to look great on camera. Only then will I start to take your special pictures.

Wall Art

If you decide to have your portrait turned in to beautiful wall art, it will last for generations and link your family through time.   A printed picture is a real time machine!

What are people saying about their portraits:


Ebony O
Honestly the best photographer I've been too he is truly passionate about his work and does a amazing job would highly recommend him

Natasha W
What a photographer! My daughter had a pre-deb photo shoot with him and i was completely blown away with the photos. Amazing to work with even for the shyest of clients.

Krystal T
James is a great photographer who pays high attention to detail and light. We did a photoshoot at his studio and he is fully equipped and ready to start shooting. He helped me develop better modelling poses to accentuate my figure. James is creative and a friendly photographer to work with. Highly recommend.

Shady G
James is an incredibly skilled photographer who can capture the essence of an event not just the event itself. I couldn't be happier with the results. But more than that, he's warm, friendly and fantastic to deal with. Don't think twice, call James

Sherry G
I've just had James photograph my 21st birthday and he is the loveliest person to deal with! He made sure everyone was looking their absolute best, he was so attentive to any requirements that I asked for, he was super friendly and simply delightful! I would HIGHLY recommend James for your next event, so talented and professional and an incredible artistic eye for breath taking photos!
