James Yeats-Brown has been a photographer for over fifteen years now, starting out in the days of film with social photography for Harpers and Queen magazine and then building up extensive experience working for both corporate and private clients. He had photographs selected for exhibition at London’s National Portrait Gallery in the Portrait Prize in 2004 and 2005 and has just been chosen in 2014 as one of the "bragging rights" or ambassador photographers for Queensberry Albums. James is perhaps best known for his natural, sometimes quirky portraits of children and his immersive coverage of special private functions here and abroad. He is author of The Candid Eye, a blog dedicated to family photography, album making and the need to print to preserve images for the future.
"For all the imagery that cascades through our modern digital lives, I am still a passionate believer that there is a place for photography as a lasting art form and legacy for our children: the gallery quality print, the leather-bound family album, these are the things that have a proven record of longevity and are most likely to bring joy in the future as well as the present.
Whether you'd like to organise a family photo session or have a special event you'd like covered I hope you'll find inspiration on this site."
James lives in Hampshire with his wife, two ever-growing teenage boys and two cats, Vesper and Sheldon, who may occasionally sneak into one of the galleries here.
