Fashion Lens: James Meakin

“Fashion Lens”

 Kela B.

Google the phrase Fashion Photography and this handsome artist is at the top of the list. The color, location and models in the photographs immediately received my attention because fashion is artwork and he has a way of capturing art with the camera. James Meakin originated from a rural upbringing in Devon, UK. His love of color, fashion, and beauty is clearly evident in his photographic work. Several years after studying engineering, James traveled to and lived in New York, Paris, Brazil, Munich, and Cape Town. Traveling aroused his earlier passion for fashion photography. James combines his skills, attention to detail, and inspiration from nature to produce beautiful, graphic, and fantasy themed images. James is based in London and has photographed for Vogue, Harpers, GQ, Tatler, Stylist, Financial Times, net-a-porter, Dansk, and Exit. His work has been seen all over the world as he continues to work his magic hands with the camera.

James ultimate goal as a fashion photographer is to enjoy the time when the camera is in his hand. He surrounds himself with the best teams in the industry, so that his images can catch the eye from time to time, as a great fashion image can, and just for a fleeting moment provide a distraction to someone’s ordinary day to day business.
