James M. Cole II Specializations Fine art photography, black and white and color I’ve always been mesmerized by photography.  Self-taught, I initially began dabbling in photography purely as a hobby and on family vacations.  But after a while it became more than just  a hobby.   Travelling regularly through Europe and Asia I began to fall in love with the beautiful architectural masterpieces and the dramatic landscapes that I would encounter - and it was then that I began to explore photography more seriously - as I fell in love with what I saw through my lens.  It was also then that I began to experiment with new ways of shooting and representing my work.  I discovered that I desired to photograph these beautiful places in a more artistic and stylized way.. Photo-art, as I like to call it.
