James Vitullo is a professional, published, award-winning freelance photographer and recent graduate of Columbia College Chicago (Bachelor’s of Arts in Photography) who shoots commercial, food, portrait, fine art, wedding, and event aspects. Being a self-taught artist since eight years of age, immersing himself in this field only impacted his career with positivity. Beginning as an artist where his style was only known by family and a limited amount of friends, this expanded to an array of people through connections of friends and also people in professional fields. He enjoys capturing the world and the beauty it holds and shares with the inhabitants present.
“Anything is a Photograph.” This is a motto developed from his career that turned into a feasible, potential business. His work is all over the board, including the living and inanimate, animal and portrait, urban and natural. He specializes in candid aspects as well as in-the-moment captures. Wherever he is, he ends up with a composition worth visualizing behind the lens of his Nikon. His mind conjures up ideas that conform to the situation at hand, such as angle, framing, and potential post-processing outcomes.
Portraiture, nature, and architecture are some of the kinds of photographs he captures. Editing is just as enjoyable as capturing them. He shares his work all the time on Facebook and Instagram; he smiles with every comment and "like" he receives. He has kept comments from friends and family in his mind in order to figure out his photographic style. One that stood out to him was that balance is evident in almost every photo: one part is dark and the other is light; one side is busy and the other is peaceful.
His philosophy about photography is that if you are a true photographer you are a person who admires the little things in life. See more of his work at jamesvitullo.com.
