James is a Bristol based photographer and videographer working in the outdoor adventure industry both for adventure organisations and for companies that use adventure activity to promote their products. In 2018 James was lucky enough to travel with 59 North Sailing from Bodø in northern Norway up to Svalbard in the high Arctic on their Swan 48 yacht. From Svalbard they also made the 1000 mile crossing to the Westfjords of Iceland spending over 7 days at sea. Throughout this two month trip and subsequent climbing trips to Iceland and Stetind, back in northern Norway James was working for Favre-Leuba, using unique adventures to promote their range of watches.

The next major trip is approaching in November 2019 and with 59 North Sailing James will sail the 1500m stretch of ocean between the Chesapeake Bay and the British Virgin Islands on their new boat Ice Bear.

James' work has been featured by BBC Earth, Helly Hansen, Favre-Leuba, Yachting World, Sail Magazine, the National Trust and in local and national media, including Surf Norge and The Inertia.

For those who may be interested, high quality prints of all images are available in a range of sizes.
