    Jim is excellent! Throughout this process he has been responsive and easy to work with. I met him today for my headshot and he was very punctual, well organized and efficient, professional, easy to work with, and understood what I was looking for. He is a pleasure to work with!

About this pro

The name FairwayPhotos seemed like a natural extension of my career in the golf industry and my love of photography. I retired after a long career as the Director of the Presidents Golf Course in Quincy Massachusetts. Since that time, I have worked tirelessly on photography and meeting my clients imaging needs. I have found that I’ve really migrated toward a few types of photography. They are as follows: PORTRAITS: I can’t believe how much I enjoy shooting portraits. I love to capture the essence of the person and provide them with a set of portraits they will cherish for years to come. While I do have a small studio set here in Plainville and portable backgrounds and lighting I find I really prefer shooting in natural light outdoors. There is softness and life like quality to these images which cannot be replicated in the studio. My favorite portrait work has been senior graduation shoots. I’m thrilled to provide these young people a portrait that represents their transition from student to their adult lives. While shooting engagement and couple portraits I love to capture the love and intimacy between two people. Again, I find the natural lighting and settings emphasize the love and connection the couple share. And family portraits create memories that will last a lifetime. I try to capture the fun and joy of family life that will stir thoughts of those times in their lives as they move forward on their journeys. One of the few times I prefer studio/indoor shoots is for professional head and shoulder shots. I try to provide a dignified professional image that will work for websites, social medial, and company needs. The most satisfying part of photography for me is when you open your work and begin editing and you see an image that just makes you say WOW!

    Q & A

    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I am always taking seminars and training offered by various sources and constantly am reading about improving my work.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      I guess I've always had an interest in photography. There is a family picture of me from about my 7th grade year with a Kodak Brownie camera around my neck. During my career in the golf industry, my camera was always handy to document the work and improvements to the golf courses I was managing. So the transition to working photography as a profession was really quite seamless.
    • What types of customers have you worked with?
      Portraits, events, product,and golf course photography. I have also done many lifestyle types of photo shoots as well as fine art images. Coming from a background in the golf industry, I can't believe how much I enjoy shooting portraits.
