Perry James is a native Floridian with a lifelong love of photography. The abundance of wetlands, woodlands, shoreline and wildlife in the area provide him with ample opportunity to purse his passion. As a child, he could be found camping, horseback riding, fishing and swimming with friends and family. That is where he discovered his deep appreciation for the environment, and the natural beauty it provides.
Perry’s passion is landscape photography – rising early or going late in the afternoon in order to catch the motion of the landscape … that moment in time when the color, light and textures all fuse together, just waiting to be captured. He sometimes returns multiple times to the same location, in order to catch it the way he envisioned it.
His collection includes stunning black and white images and breathtaking full color landscapes. For the black and white scenes, he looks for dramatic textures, shadows and highlights. He is already planning how he will process the image – right down to the type of paper he will be using! “In my color landscapes” says James “I am not trying to document the scene - but to bring out its essence! It is more about the feeling and less about the detail that I am trying to convey to the viewer.”
Perry’s work is displayed in many private collections throughout the world and within the United States. His work can also be seen at the Englewood Art and Frame gallery in Englewood, Florida. Perry travels to fine art shows throughout Florida during festival season and he can be found at local Craft Fairs and Farmers Markets in the area. Check out “Show Dates” for a list of locations.
I am continually striving for perfection in my photography to capture the moment when the light, shadows and textures come together creating a photograph of a moment in time that you can proudly display in your home or office.
