London: James Eckersley

James Eckersley is a London-based portrait and advertising photographer who has worked for many national and international publications and corporations, including Time Magazine, The Sunday Times Magazine, The Telegraph Magazine, Premiere Magazine, American Express, Samsung and Virgin Records. A selection of his portrait work is also held in the permanent collection at The National Portrait Gallery.

James' talent for working quickly, quietly and effectively under difficult conditions sets him apart, with skills honed from years working with celebrity subjects in unpredictable circumstances. He usually works on location or with a portable studio set-up, but is equally comfortable in a more traditional studio environment.

His published books include 'The Last Few - Portraits of aircrew from The Battle of Britain", a major collection of portraits and biographies of the last remaining veterans from this epic aerial conflict. James is currenly working on a new portrait book depicting the world's leading stuntmen and stuntwomen. "This is a fascinating insight into the lives and work of a unique body of professionals, and I'm having amazing fun working on each portrait". The book is due to be published next year.
