Jim helped me to define and pursue my vision...

“When I met Jim, I knew right away that there was ‘something’ about him and his work. After seeing his presentation at Out Of Chicago, I decided to take his Black and White Artistry class. The class was a beautiful and powerful experience. Jim helped me to define and pursue my vision and taught me the techniques I needed to perfect my work. Most importantly, he understood me, the person and the artist. I am proud to call him friend and mentor.”

He made me fall in love with photography all over again. I am so thankful for Jim. His love and passion for the art of photography is inspiring. He has taught me so much and still continues to help me whenever I need him. That’s the kind of person Jim is: passionate, kind, inspiring, and always, always, helpful.”

He is the master come down from the top of the mountain...

“Jim is that rare kind of teaching artist that genuinely cares about each student’s growth and challenges them to maximize the full potential of their photographic material. I can sincerely say I wouldn’t be half the artist had I never crossed paths with Jim’s mentorship and inspiring work. When Jim speaks and engages you, you sit up and listen. He is the master come down from the top of the mountain with the ease and experience to explain both the creative, inner process and the technical skills needed to realize world class, photographic art.”
