About

Fine art Photographer

Thanks for visiting this page to learn more about me! Hopefully you’ve enjoyed the great artwork here in this space, on this website. Be sure to come-back often, as well as follow me on Social Media, to keep-up with new creative artworks!

I’ve been a serious photographer, doing what I do professionally, for about 9 years. I’ve had a keen interest in photography ever since I was 16 and began traveling abroad, where I first felt the “need” to take a camera with me!

I am based in the Winston-Salem, NC area. I have a full, two-story, climate controlled photography studio, where I spend a lot of my time doing photoshoots as well, for J Farley Photography. Visit my portraiture: JFarleyPhotography.com/Portfolio.

The exercise of Photography

I have a saying: “Photography is great exercise.” Hiking to those waterfalls and mountain peaks, for those refreshing experiences in nature and the opportunity to work the shot and arrive at a beautiful, artistic representation of that scene: that’s pleasurable to me! And, it’s great exercise!

Art & Light

For me, photography is my personal vehicle of artistic expression. I am always shooting, regardless of whether there is business. It's a passion. I have to keep my camera in my hands.

You’ll always find me busy creating fine art. Generally speaking, in my fine-art photography, I am most fascinated by ambient light, it’s shape, it’s direction, it’s quality. Even when I use artificial light, it is done in a way which attempts to mimic natural light.

I put myself in a 'frame' of mind to quickly recognize what will bring a unique and pleasing result. I do not fight against the light; I work with it. As I exercise my art of photography, I stay very cognizant of impressions of light and endeavor to ensure that I capture what drew me to the scene to begin with, as a guiding principle, because as one works the shot, it is too easy to get off-track. That first impression on the heart must guide you back, each time.
