Uptown Saint John recently installed in their office space, a large mural of King’s Square at night taken by James. Feel free to stop in and have a look. Keep your eyes out for his talented perspective through his beautiful photography.
Let’s get to know James…
|Where were you born/Where are you from?
I was born in Saint John & grew up in GrandBay-Westfield.
Ive been working in Saint John since May 2013 & have no plans to leave. I have dedicated my time here to do my part in SJ & to grow the Rod Stears Photography name. Its important to grow the company to provide more work for us & grow in the future.
Rod Stears the owner of the company because he has given me a chance to work right out of school & teach me about the business. Not very many people in SJ have the opportunity that I have had.
Summer – it’s our busiest time for business & I’m happy to make a difference & provide a service to the city.
We have a coffee Machine in the office that never takes time off.
No pets at the moment, But my girlfriend has 2 cats that I always have to feed & look after when she is out of town.
Being to organized, trying to get to much done in short time.
Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. There’s a lot to the music industry which you can apply to your business. I use a lot of his approaches to the things he does to work with here.
I love walking up the streets of SJ to see the beauty that we have here. Being in the uptown core provides me with this everyday. We take advantage of the restaurants here, so far the best service & food is Ryan Duffy’s.
