There are photographers and there are artists, and there are also artistic photographers, who shoot and draw amazing photographs and pictures in their own fields. But, have you ever heard of the two fields being merged in one frame?
Well, you just need to have a look at the works of James Anthony and you’ll know what we’re talking about. This gifted photographer merges photography and art that blurs the line between what’s actual and what’s notional. This unique concept of shoot and draw has made this Atlanta photographer a rage on the internet.
Anthony, a competing track & field athlete, chose to pursue photography instead and went on to earn his Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communications from Savannah State University. He gained mastery in photography, animation and video production.
Originally hailing from New York City, Anthony relocated to Atlanta, Georgia, and perfected the finer nuances of photography by doing fashion spreads, cover shoots for global brands and magazines. His creative eye and clean shots soon found him riding the crest of success in the fashion and entertainment industries.
However, Anthony’s real popularity came through #JamesShootsandDraws, a unique concept of merging photographs with the drawing that makes the photos both fun and unusual. It is not at all surprising that Anthony’s works have been published in international publications and world’s leading advertisement campaigns.
Anthony’s job keeps him on his toes and makes him travel around the world to capture his outstanding photo shoots of models and celebrities, such as DJ Khaled, June Ambrose, Omari Hardwick, and more. His list of corporate clients includes Atlantic Records, Lenovo, Sony Records, and many more.
However, it is his award-winning original concept of captivating #JamesShootsandDraws that has given him global fame on Instagram, where he enjoys a following of over 66,000 fans.
