Hi! I’m James Staddon, a creation photographer and graphic designer based out of Salem, West Virginia. I have enjoyed running Lenspiration since 2009 and traveling with my camera across the United States and abroad since 2006. At a young age, the beauty of my Uncle’s photography inspired me with the realization that I, too, could create beautiful pictures which has carried me on into a career as a professional photographer and educator. Though I love to plant and nurture the idea that anyone can create beautiful imagery if they commit to it wholeheartedly, my ultimate passion in life is to see photographers make wise and God-honoring decisions in life, vocation, and relationships.
