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 beautiful 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 a subsequent climbing trip to Stetind, back in northern Norway James has been working for Favre-Leuba, using his unique adventures to promote their range of watches.

James' work has been featured by BBC Earth, Helly Hansen, Favre-Leuba, The Inertia, Wildtribe, Ellis Brigham, Karun Sunglasses, 59 North Sailing, Yachting World, Sail Magazine, the National Trust and in local and national media, including Surf Norge, The Inertia and video work has been shown at VidCon in California. There also seems to be a ton of exciting stuff snowballing into the future. 

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