Photography for me, has always been this ever evolving, creative outlet. Something will catch my eye and theres this visceral indescribable feeling that I need to grab my camera and capture it. I remember being drawn to photography at a young age. When I was growing up I had a cheap point and shoot camera that I took everywhere. I was the kid who was always taking pictures, wherever I was.
In high school I had my first photography class. We shot on film using SLRs and I credit that learning experience to where I am creatively today.
My favorite thing to shoot will always be nature and landscapes. I get a sense of stability in shooting something so vast, a feeling of being right where I am supposed to be.
I notice my style evolving over the years, where I would only shoot nature and landscapes now I find myself drawn more to portraits and creating fine art images.
I've recently finished my studies in photography and am focusing on building my photography business James Miike Photography.
