Jim is a full-time resident of Marco Island, FL. As a retired marketing executive, Jim enjoys spending his time exploring and photographing the United States in his motorhome with his wife Judy Chinski, a noted local watercolorist. Jim also loves technology and video production and all things with computers. Jim started photographing in high school and subsequently rediscovered his love in the 1990’s with an intense interest in large-format black and white landscape photography.
With the digital revolution, Jim has given up the traditional darkroom for PhotoShop, Lightroom and the computer but still loves monochrome imaging for its simplicity, contrast and drama. Whether photographing the beautiful sunsets and summer clouds of South Florida, bucolic scenes of the Canadian Maritimes, grandiose vistas of Southwest, or birds and wildlife in their natural habitat, Jim loves the outdoors and the immediacy that the new world of digital photography brings to express his vision of the great outdoors.
