Photography by James Crissman


My name is James Crissman and I am an amateur photographer learning the ropes and improving my skills and portfolio.

In this blog I’ll upload some pictures every once in a while that I’ve taken and edited.

I started out shooting with an old 35mm camera around fifth grade. Now I primarily shoot from a Nikon D90 that I purchased with my money. I also use a D40 as  a secondary.

I don’t really have a particular “style” as of yet. Just kind of exploring a whole bunch of subjects, locations, and techniques.

Leave me a comment and tell me what you think. Or you can email me at

Hope you enjoy!

    Dear James,

    I have so enjoyed seeing your work here on your site.

    Congratulations on your wonderful artistry showing depth and sensitivity.

    It would be such a treat to visit your exhibit but unfortunately time and distance prohibit it.

    Keep up the great work.

    Best wishes,

    James: Your photos are very good, but you need to get in your face with some of the sports stuff,you are to far away, there is no drama, could be any high school game. Longer lense or get closer. Once you learn to get closer, you become part of the event and people don”t fear you. You are growing in your art and I share your idea that all images are being trivialized. Look at the olympic ceremonies, everyone had a camera phone and no one was looking at each other. One way photography can overcome this mobilization is with stunning images, the one that can make a difference, the ones you remember.

    This past summer at an alumni event in Highlands I met the photographer for the emory alum association and had a very pleasant time . His name is Tom Broadnax . He was very helpful to me in my conversations about photos and we plane to get together for lunch. He was shooting with a nikon something and a 70-200,2.8 lens and he got some great shots that he shared with me. He works with the alumni assoc., but I feel okay with giving you his name because he seemed to be interested in all things nikon.

    I went to high school at emory at oxford and then finished at emory. From a small town with no tennis courts,etc. I received a classical education which to this day has made all the difference.( Frost, the road less travelled). And it made my world forever better.

    I would be glad to share photo info with you as well as what it is about being an artist that makes us different and seek the further horizon. It is a great journey that is a gift and one that

    I hope you cherish.

    If you ever up this way in Highlands we have every scenic vista and trail you could hope for,we are bout 4000′, so everything changes.
