Villager Jim certainly has gained alot of attention despite being named the Banksy of photography because of his wish to remain anonymous!
His wonderful wildlife and domestic pet images have captured the nations imagination. He has appeared on Springwatch, Alan Carr ,Countryfile and also has been granted access by the Duke of Devonshire to photograph in private areas of the Chatsworth estate.
All Jims photographs are taken local to where he lives in Foolow and if you follow his facebook page you can see that he gets up very early to capture the wonderful early morning light.
He seems to have a way with the wildlife and his images capture the personality of the animals and birds as well as their beauty, thus providing something much more than the average photograph, and it is this that has created a very sucessful business with ranges including calendars, cushions, cards and prints.
Studio 61 is very proud to be displaying his work here throughout May.
