Hey, I’m James Jessup

I have 5 years of experience in media and production with a passion for the details.

My Education

It feels like I’ve had a lifetime of learning. And I hope it stays that way. I studied Law and Journalism at the University of Queensland with an exchange semester of law at the University of Copenhagen. In my time I was an editor of Obiter magazine and the director of the UQ Law Revue. I was also the student coordinator of UQ’s student radio station and worked with the Media and Production Services team in the equipment loans department. Here I learnt professional photography techniques and taught students the foundations of photography.

My Work

Every professional photo is an investment. My photography is precise and deliberate, yet crafted to appear effortless. 

My work has been featured by both local and national magazines. I have also completed internships with the ABC and Brisbane Times, with my photographs used by the Sydney Morning Herald, and LOTL Magazine.

I am currently a content producer, primarily focussing on photography, with my major client as UberEATS.

My Story

I held my first polaroid camera when I was just ten years old. My brother and I would use it to make funny pictures using trick-photography. Three years later I got my hands on my mother’s SLR and began taking photos around our acreage property in Samford, Queensland. Once I graduated highschool, I began taking my photography and videography seriously by studying a journalism degree. My law degree facilitated invaluable creative  collaborations due to the diverse co-curricular culture.

It’s an investment.

A professional photograph is an investment. It will sell more of your product, it will attract online attention from recruiters, and it will capture a personal moment to last forever.

If you are considering professional photography for you or your business, it will eventually pay for itself in one way or another.

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”
