"My name is James Cole and I am a Fine Art Travel Photographer. I have a deep love and passion for both travel and photography. I see life as a journey and sharing the images i’ve captured during my travels is a way of taking those that view my work - along for the ride.
I’ve always been mesmerized by photography. Self-taught, I initially began dabbling in photography purely as a hobby and on family vacations. But after a while it became more than just a hobby. Travelling regularly through Europe and Asia I began to fall in love with the beautiful architectural masterpieces and the dramatic landscapes that I would encounter - and it was then that I began to explore photography more seriously - as I fell in love with what I saw through my lens. It was also then that I began to experiment with new ways of shooting and representing my work. I discovered that I desired to photograph these beautiful places in a more artistic and stylized way.. Photo-art, as I like to call it.
I consider myself extremely lucky to be able to travel the world and share the awesome places that I have visited. I often say that through my photography I hope to tell a story, elicit a reaction, beg a question, conjure a memory or invoke a
feeling. Ultimately, at the very least, I hope to have those that encounter my work to just "feel something."
All of my work is available for purchase. You may visit the “How to Purchase” tab on my website for more information. If you would just like to comment then you may email me or visit me on Facebook or Instagram. I would love to hear from you as well".
