Blessed with an artist's eye, Jim set aside pencils, brushes, and other traditional artist tools to focus on the photograph. His first camera capture was the Salt Lake Temple decades ago. He adds to the collection at a measured pace, working now with pixels rather than emulsions, with a unique evolving perspective at the convergence of sacred and beautiful.

Currently he and his wife find joy in Central Utah, where they can be close to most of their twenty-five grandchildren.
