James Netz the Photographer

Professional Portrait & Nature Photographer - James Netz

My passion of photography ignited when I built a box camera from an old shoebox way back in elementary school. Since then, photography has been an extension of my creativity and the palette for my work. I derived my appreciation of the natural world's grandeur while growing up in northern Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan. I continue to visit these pristine areas time and again along with new locations, capturing them in just the right light or from a slightly different angle. I received my formal education from Northland College in Ashland, WI, located on the shores of my beloved Lake Superior which continues to be the hub of my photography. Currently, I balance my life and work between our Cable, WI home, nestled in the Chequamegon National Forest, and our home in the Twin Cities. I am continuously inspired by photography since subject matter, technology, and techniques are ever changing, keeping me living on the edge by taking on the impossible and turning it into a successful shot.

The foundation of my photography centers on capturing the personality of my subject regardless if it's an old barn, a bride and groom on their wedding day, nature, a newborn portrait, or a sunrise on Lake Superior. They all possess a personality and are unique. I am tenacious in capturing those personalities and conveying them to all of my customers along with providing exceptional photography and videography services.

The best thing I can suggest for you and your family is to hire a true professional photographer like myself, to capture the precious moments in your life. Yielding images that will become keepsakes to cherish forever.
