James Mcarthur Cole II is a Fine Art Travel Photographer with a deep love and passion for both travel and photography. Seeing life as a journey and sharing the images he’s captured during his travels is a way of taking those that view his work - along for the ride. Self-taught, James initially began dabbling in photography purely as a hobby and on family vacations. But after a while it became more than just a hobby. Travelling regularly through Europe and Asia he began to fall in love with the beautiful architectural masterpieces and the dramatic landscapes that he encountered - and it was then that he began to explore photography more seriously - as he fell in love with what he saw through the lens. James considers himself extremely lucky to be able to travel the world and to share the awesome places that he has visited. He often says that through his photography his hope is to tell a story, elicit a reaction, beg a question, conjure a memory or invoke a feeling. Ultimately, at the very least, James says his hope is to have those that encounter his work to simply "feel something."
