James Newman, Photographer


My passion is in the details.
One day maybe the details are tangible, within the physical world, like dealing with sun angles at different times of year when shooting on location. Another day, I could invent a slick technical solution while retouching an image I shot in studio. I get satisfaction from being a problem-solver dealing with these kinds of situations.
I studied Architecture for 2 years at California College of Arts and Crafts, then transferred to Photography. I went on to receive a BFA with honors in Photography from CCAC in 2007. Before that I received an AA in Commercial Photography from Seattle Central Community College in 2002.
I currently live in Oakland, California.
