After retiring from IBM in 2006, Jim decided it was time for his right brain to come out and play. He set about learning the art of photography, became President of Professional Photographers of Los Angeles County, and established a boutique portrait studio in Los Angeles while growing a list of corporate Clients for his commercial photography business.
Jim’s next frontier is fine art photography. As an emerging artist, his work has recently been featured in several galleries across the county, including solo shows at The Art of Fashion”, produced by Neiman Marcus in Woodland Hills, California; “Art, Wine and Music” at the Commons in Calabasas, California; f/9 Gallery in Culver City, California; and the Calabasas Library Gallery in Calabasas, California. Group shows include a 9-month exhibition at Sargent’s Fine Art Gallery in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii, as well as shows at See.Me Gallery in New York City; New York Center for Photographic Art in New York City; ADC Building Bridges Gallery at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, California; Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, Vermont; A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas; Dragonfly Gallery at Rosedale in Austin, Texas, “Dreams on Canvas” at the Four Seasons Hotel in Westlake Village, California, Infinity Art Gallery and Open 2 Interpretation.
