James Woodley is a Miami-based photographer who specializes in capturing what the naked eye cannot. Using moody lighting and provocative angles, he produces exciting and unique images of athletes in motion: running, jumping, kicking, dancing and seemingly defying the laws of gravity.
Along with fitness, James also shoots celebrity editorials, television personalities, high-end fashion, magazine covers, detailed portraits and street photography. His true passion, though, is anything involving capturing action. He has the uncanny ability to freeze a powerful moment in time, using a combination of lighting, expert technical knowledge and some perfect timing. As a result, he’s able to unlock in a photo, hidden details and characteristics you might not otherwise see.
James, who is originally from London, England, is a self-taught photographer. He became serious about his craft when he moved stateside almost 10 years ago. Whether it’s for a magazine, advertising campaign, social media or personal use, James’ main focus is to capture the world around us using his talents to enhance its natural beauty.
