About James Lester

James Lester is a bit of a legend on Instagram ~ it was this reputation that initially caught our eye at SLOtography…that, and his incredible images! After a little time spent with James, you’ll find that this guy’s photos are just a sample of the excellence that is 'J Lest,' his gangsta rap alter-ego (not really). Coming up on the Central Coast, James has been captivated by the world's natural beauty from a young age, but it wasn't until he picked up a camera in 2015 that he did anything besides appreciate what his eyes presented him. Fast forward to today, and James has spent the past three years honing his craft: capturing magnificent landscapes & dozens of weddings, both as part of the team & solo. His talent & passion for photography continue to grow and we like that! Aside from taking photos, you can find James maintaining his musical chops, climbing rocks (usually fake ones in the gym), practicing yoga (keyword: practicing). & eating vegan food. Yeah, he's one of THOSE weirdos. You can get in touch directly with James@SLOtography.com :)
