Jim first became interested in photography in 2000 when working as a volunteer on a marine expedition to Fiji, over the last decade this passion has grown into a profession.
After completing an MSc in marine science in 2008 studying the Bumphead Parrotfish, Jim worked in the Caribbean and Egypt for various marine conservation NGO’s, carrying out marine surveys and training graduates and volunteers in marine flora and fauna identification.
In 2012, Jim made the switch to full time professional photography and cinematography in Thailand, working on Koh Lipe. A year later he arrived in Cayman and joined Cathy Church's Photo Centre as a photographer / cinematographer and underwater photography instructor.
