Jim began his career over 25 years ago as a photojournalist for a former San Diego newspaper, where he perfected his skill at capturing fast paced action and working to tight deadlines.

From there Jim moved on to a portrait studio, where he mastered the art of making people look good with lighting, background choice, pose and expression. His weddings have been featured in Down The Aisle in San Diego, the Little Chapel of the Roses in Bonita, California, outdoor events, as well as such locales as Las Rosas, Mexico. Along the way he has enjoyed photographing hundreds of weddings, and collected numerous thank you cards from happy brides.

Jim is also known for his public relations work for a number of clients, including the San Diego Chapter of the United Nations, Mercy Hospital, Scripps Hospital, Children's Hospital, the USS Constellation and USS Missouri, the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club, the Andy Williams Open at Torrey Pines and several community service organizations.
