I’m an Iowa native and former newspaper photographer. Now I shoot for fun.

I experimented with different photography styles and techniques following my departure from the news industry in 2018. In February of 2020, I assigned myself a personal 28-day black and white shooting challenge. I loved it! I’ve been shooting mostly B&W ever since.

I’m finding I enjoy simplicity. I love the simplicity of black and white. I admire work by other photographers that feature simple but strong compositions that make good use of lines, shapes and light. I feel happiest when I can incorporate that into my own photographs.

I may still shoot an occasional color photograph. And I’m sure my shooting style will continue to evolve and change. But for now I enjoy exploring my world in B&W.

Thanks for visiting!

Jim Lee, Photographer
