A while back a kid picked up a camera and, well, you probably know the rest.
My name is James Young and I am a husband to a gorgeous wife, and I am a wedding and portrait photographer local to the Bay Area in Northern California.
I am a geek and storyteller at heart. I love all things tech and can probably put you to sleep three times over explaining to you in depth various questions about computers, cameras, and other technologies you'll wish you hadn't asked about. Seriously, if you give me a cup of coffee, I can talk your ear off.
I am also really into anything related to Marvel comics. Venom is my favorite character in that universe, and a close second would have to be the great Tony Stark Aka Iron Man. Talk nerdy to me and our photo session may just take an extra 2 hours!
Throughout by photography career, I have used Nikon equipment as well as Sony equipment. When you dive into my camera bag today, you will find tons and tons of Canon equipment. That being said, the brand of camera equipment you use is merely a tool to accomplish a task. My subjective choice to use Canon equipment does not shape my imagery nor any other photographer's imagery. While it is true that you need high quality camera equipment to produce high quality images, the same is also true that you need a high quality photographer to produce high quality photographs.
If you read through the page and you got here, let me know when you contact me and I will give you five percent off your session fee as a way of thanking you for taking the time to read a little bit about myself. Honestly, writing about myself is pretty awkward and if you endured it, that is the least I can do.
In addition to this website, I encourage you to find me on my various social media outlets. You can check out what I am up to at Facebook or Instagram. If you are a photographer, I also encourage you to check out my YouTube channel.
I am looking forward to hearing from you!
