James Pickett: New Kid On The Block

Unfortunately not very many people inspire me, which is probably why I'm not posting on here as often as I'd like to, but every so often I'll come across someone's work and feel compelled to share it.

James Pickett, Photographer
Meet James Pickett, a humble NYC Photographer who has the innate ability to capture a moment that invokes a variety of emotions with one snap of his camera.  I know, I know, there are a million amazing photographers in the city, so what makes this one so special?  

Well, for me it's as though you can actually FEEL the passion of the photographer and the subject materialize.  It's that synergy that is (for both a lack of sleep and a better word) MAGNETIZING.  And those who know me, know very well that I'm not one to blow smoke up anyone's ass - this guy happens to have "it."


So many of us are fixated on the Terry Richardsons of world and that's cool, but there are a handful of artists like James who deserve to be recognized for their inspiring work as well. 

John Mayer, Saratoga Arts Center

Whether he's shooting musicians or models, portraits or action shots, Pickett seems to effortlessly encapsulate the very essence of the subject's soul. 

Amadi Brasco, Recording Artist
Jared Funari, Musician

Brett Eidman, Comedian 

           James is the perfect example of passion + action = magic.

His work is nothing short of extraordinary. I am definitely a fan.
