Based in Los Angeles and available for travel

 Jim Newberry self-portrait.  |  213-280-0129




My interest in photography began as a young child, when my father–James Newberry, who founded the photography department at Chicago’s Columbia College–taught me how to use a camera and darkroom. That childhood hobby became a lifelong career, when, after graduating from college, I began shooting portraits for magazines, record labels, and other commercial clients. After years of living and working in a very great city with very punishing winters, I’ve relocated to Los Angeles, where I’m loving the mountains and ocean, and still trying to get used to seeing umbrellas used to block the sun, not the rain.

Assignments I’m available for include, but not limited to: editorial, advertising, corporate, and unit still photography.
