James is a London based architectural photographer creating high quality images of the built environment.

I have been continually immersed in Architecture and the built environment since 1987:

I studied architecture part 1 & 2 as a mature student at South Bank University;
I practised architecture at Foster's and Grimshaw's amongst other practices;
I taught architecture at degree and post graduate level South Bank University.
I managed the graphical output of the Steel Construction Institute.
I started JZA Photography to capture the highest quality images of the built environment.

I have been passionate about photography since my childhood.
More recently I have been professionally involved with all aspects of digital imaging whether it be specifying, commissioning or delivering content.

I'm certain I can help with your photographic or imaging needs.
Do contact me to discuss any needs or projects you may have and I'll be happy to discuss how I can assist.
