9/29/15-A few months ago I was contacted by Digital Photo Mag UK about an upcoming feature they wanted to do on my photography. After some good back and forth dialogue, the images were selected and a list of questions sent for me to answer. The result is a multi page feature in the October 2015 issue on my photography. They chose the images for the feature, and I think they chose some pretty good ones to showcase what I am all about and what I typically enjoy photographing. At the time they contacted me I was going by Peter James Nature Photography which is the name they used in the feature, however, they did add my last name (despite the misspelling). Anyways, it is always cool to see your work featured in publications and I am pretty excited to be able to share this great news. The magazine is currently available at select Barnes and Noble stores as well as select Costco retailers. Below are some images I took of the feature from the actual magazine.  Please note that the cover image is not my image, it is just shown for reference to the respective issue. 

7/03/15- Exciting news! My image "Mountain Minions" has received the grand prize honors in the 2014/2015 Arizona Highways Magazine online photo contest! Along with that image, my image "Days End" of Watson Lake also received an honorable mention in the same contest. It means a lot to have won this contest as the magazine is something that has inspired me for many years. To be featured among some of the greatest photographers is truly an honor! Expect to see both images published in the September issue of the magazine.  You can see the other winners and honorable mentions here.
