James Lester is a bit of a legend on Instagram. A reputation that initially caught our eye at SLOtography. That, and his incredible images. After some time spent with James, you’ll find that his photos are just a piece of his total awesome-ness.
Growing up on the Central Coast, James was captivated by the world’s natural beauty from a young age. So when he picked up a camera in 2015, his appreciation for the natural world took on an even wider angle.
Fast forward to today. James has spent the past five years honing his craft: capturing magnificent landscapes and dozens of weddings both with SLOtography and on his own.
Working with James you’ll quickly realize he is, first and foremost, a friend. Of course, he is professional each and every step of the way—but he also believes a casual and relaxed vibe yields the best photos (and we couldn’t agree more!). With James behind the lens, you can unleash that unbridled smile and let your natural light shine.
Aside from taking photos, you can find James climbing rocks (usually fake ones in the gym), maintaining his musical chops, practicing yoga (keyword: practicing), and eating vegan food. Yeah, he’s one of those guys 😉
