When did you know you wanted to be a photographer?
Right out of high school. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. I just happened to bring a camera to a show once and the rest is history.

If you could shoot any band/artist, who would it be?
Panic! At The Disco or Muse.

Words of advice:
TAKE. RISKS.

What inspired you to pick up a camera?
I’ve never been very good at anything academic but always loved creative subjects at school. I found taking photos to be a good way to explain what I wanted to say without the need for many words.

What are some photography goals of yours?
To become a tour photographer, shoot covers for magazines, be published in Kerrang.

Words of advice:
Don’t let anybody tell you it isn’t possible. If you love it enough keep trying until you succeed.

Amber James – @amberjamesphoto

We Came As Romans
Suicide Silence
Megadeth

If you could shoot any band/artist, who would it be?
Logic, MGK, TGI, Mike Shinoda, Billie Eilish.

What inspired you to pick up a camera?
I just always loved capturing moments and taking photos of friends and it translated into a career.

Words of advice:
Just start shooting! And never be an asshole, you’ll never know who someone is or their connections.
