As a portrait photographer, I strive to create images that are a reflection of the person’s personality, temper and their inner world. My ultimate goal is to create images that are timeless for your family. I achieve this with my relaxed and natural style. I will take the time to make sure your family is comfortable in front of the camera and provide you with images that will be in your home for many years to come.
As of 2017, I personally, only accept a maximum of 10 Wedding commissions a year. Our team of wonderful photographers, I like to call them, “The next generation” are available for any number of event dates.
I am also an educator of photography. I have been a guest lecturer for a number of local professional photography organizations, and am an active member of the Professional Photographers of America and Wedding and Portrait Photographers International.
Gene has been a staple at LJ Studios from the very beginning. When James first opened up on his own after many years working for another studio, Gene came with him. Gene is absolutely hilarious! Our clients love his sense of humor and incredible ability to work with large groups in a quick, efficient yet artistic manner.
Andres has been part of LJ Studios since he was in High School. He started out as an intern from Rye Neck HS and while attending Iona College, continued to work with us, eventually as our studio manager and photographer. Over the years, Andres has developed into a wonderful photographer. When need be, he has a commanding presence while orchestrating family group photos, and as a candid photographer, he has a way of blending in to a party to capture the moments you yourself, might miss over the course of your event.
Meliisa is our Intern Extraordinaire! Melissa is learning photography and is a wonderful assistant. In training to soon be one of our photographers, Melissa has been like a sponge, absorbing knowledge from James, Geremy, Gene, and Andes like nobody’s business. With great attention to detail, Melissa is sure to be, (and already is), a wonderful addition to the LJ Studios team.
