In 1978, Jim came to the North Shore of Oahu, for a “week-long surf trip”. He is still here. Long before auto-focus, digital cameras and Instagram, surf photography in the 70s was an up and coming field with only a handful of photographers in the water. For 30+ years, Jim has travelled the world, serving as Senior Staff Photographer for all the major U.S. surf magazines. Jim has also been a great influence on women’s surfing and longboard surfing. Beyond editorial magazine work, Jim has collaborated closely on numerous advertising campaigns, most well-known for his work with Roxy. Jim spends most of his days in the water, surfing and shooting, doing what he loves and bringing a fresh soulful beauty with his images for others to enjoy. Visit the Rocky Point Collective gallery on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii to see Jim’s photos and his wife, Mia’s Jewelry. Jim’s photos are published in a great book titled, Flying Through the Clouds.
