A native of New York, Joseph James had to travel a world away to get his unique start in photography. Already a seasoned model, stage and screen actor, and professional dancer; Joseph James found his true calling while serving our country in Iraq, capturing the stories of American soldiers with his camera. Inspired by visual storytelling, and with over twenty years experience in front of the camera acting as a catalyst, he found his new home behind the lens. Since then some of his clients have included: ABC, Remy Martin, Bravo TV, Liberty Mutual, BMW, and Spike TV. He can also be spotted as a photographer, red carpet host, and sponsor at esteemed fashion events across the country, including New York Fashion Week, Miss America, and film festivals nationwide.
