James is a self-taught photographer living in Sydney’s eastern Suburbs with his wife Laura and son Jude.

Originally from Yorkshire in the UK, James has been taking unique photographs of the local beaches like Bondi, Bronte, Clovelly and Coogee for the past six years. Having been bought his first DSLR as a leaving gift, James began to explore his new home through the lens, and what started as a hobby quickly developed into a business, selling signed prints and offering photography shoots from family portraits and weddings to commercial events.

Mahon Pool – Maroubra
Sydney has some amazing ocean pools dotted along its coastline. They offer shelter from the swell and current, but still make you feel your swimming i the ocean. Mahon pool, located in North Maroubra is my favorite.  Image credit: Jimmisnaps Photography
