Traveler, photographer, wanderlust sufferer. Blogger, poet, creative. I take a lot of photos, especially when I travel. I'm interested in a wide variety of subjects, from street scenes and beautiful skyline and cityscapes to grungy alleys covered in graffiti. Generally speaking, if it cannot talk then I am interested in shooting it. I am not necessarily looking for the defining image of a place, but rather collecting groups of photos that illustrate what I witnessed there. I'm not looking for perfection, because it doesn't exist. I like beautiful photos, but I don't care about creating a masterpiece. Beauty is subjective, so how can you define it anyways? I am trying to capture as much as possible from everywhere I go and publish it as soon as I can. I use Flickr as the public record of my work, and I love it here.

I do a fair amount of post-processing of my photos, as I consider this art and therefore subject to interpretation. I create a lot of tutorials as well as share tips and tricks on my blog at where you can also find presets for Luminar by Macphun. I create video training for Macphun and also wrote an ebook entitled "The Photographer's Guide to Austin, TX". I have a photography "to do list" that is longer than my arm. I'm trying to get to it all. It's fun trying. ;-)

    "Each time I browse through Jim's photo stream, I am simply awestruck by the beauty of his work. Every image is a masterpiece...a combination of light, shadows and colour that leave the viewer wanting more. I am especially fond of his city scenery images, they capture the beauty perfectly. Sorry about the typo Jim :) I have come back to correct it."
