Hi! I’m James Staddon a landscape, event, wedding and travel photographer from West Virginia.

Captivated by God’s creation and inspired by my Uncle’s photography at an early age, I started exploring photography in the early 2000s, began pursuing it seriously in 2006, and jumped into it professionally in 2013 under the business name of Lenspiration.
