James Abbott is an editorial and advertising photographer producing eye-catching landscape and portrait images for editorial, commercial and private clients. And despite being based in Cambridge – one of the flattest parts of the country – you’ll regularly find him exploring the UK’s hills, mountains and expansive coastline with his camera.
In each of his images, James aims to capture a sense of place that tells the viewer a story, and this approach has earned him a number of awards over the years. He also regularly contributes to some of the UK’s best photography magazines and websites including Amateur Photographer, Digital Camera World, Digital SLR Photography, Tech Radar and WEX Photo & Video among many others.
Before working as a freelance photographer and journalist, James worked at Practical Photography magazine where he was Deputy Editor. With this editorial photography and magazine journalism experience, he understands exactly how words and images work together and can produce high-quality words and picture packages for clients. For photography and journalism commissions, photography workshops and print sales get in touch here.
