Come each October James joins a team of climbers from across the country to rappel the 850ft drop of the New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia, better known as Bridge Day. James now makes a life of climbing by photographing and filming other professional climbers as they perform their craft accessing the inaccessible. He has photographed for multiple companies such as Yale Cordage, True Werk Clothing, and Modjeski and Masters Engineering.
