Jim’s London retrospective ‘Eye For Images’ took place at close of 2005. The show was his re-entry to the European fashion world. It was widely reviewed in the press and on television, featuring a BBC1 TV interview and an 8-page feature in The Sunday Times Magazine. The show moves on to Paris in the spring of 2006, Milan and then to New York in the autumn. The prestigious Hamiltons Gallery in London represents Jim for picture sales and he has just been selected, along with Nick Knight, David Bailey & Rankin for the fashion section of the permanent collection at the V&A.;
Jim now shoots projects for selected clients and intends to specialize in shooting advertising photography and film imagery for clients in the areas of fashion, beauty and cosmetics.
