... a little history.

Donna James is an experienced photographer that has worked with many clients and customers in Bellingham for over 20 years. She attended a trade school for photography in Victoria BC in 1991. After receiving a certificate of completion she was hired by local Studios and Sports photography companies. Gaining experience with film, digital, various lighting and customer service, she is easy to relate to and enjoys meeting and collaborating with all her clients. She has experience in property photography, newborn, family, HS seniors, children, business head-shots, beauty and fine art imagery.

"I love the creative process! From first meeting my client to understanding what type of image they are seeking, getting the collaboration down and working to achieve a combined vision, then to the editing and right through to the end, delivering prints." 

I can't wait to meet you and work with you!  -Donna
