I'm James Godman

New York City based photographer and director available for assignments worldwide.


There are moments that show us that much light and love exists on this earth. As a photographer and film director, those are the moments I choose to focus on with all I’ve got.


Still Shoots and Film Directing  

For quite a few years now I have photographed and directed many successful shoots for some of the biggest brands in the world. Each project is different, and I always have a distinct approach that brings the idea to life in a compelling way. This award winning work strengthens engagement by telling meaningful and clear stories, and my experience ensures we get the goods every time. I’m available for assignments in New York City and worldwide, and I welcome storyboard and idea discussions. Let me tell a story for you.

Production Note

Great production is about planning and removing the unknown. That’s why I only work with the best producers and teams in the business. This means smooth sailing from the moment we start thinking about creating your content, through detailed treatments and bids, pre-production and scheduling, shoot days, and delivery of perfect files.
