JAMES GROVES, THE PHOTOGRAPHER
My name is James Groves. I am a freelance photographer, based in
Southern California, and frequently traveling throughout the US
Photography is a lifelong pursuit for me. Starting with my earliest
childhood memories, carrying through my school years, combining
with my love of aviation with the US Navy, and developing further
in over a dozen years of professional experience.
I took my first photo class in 1984. I served in the US Navy as
a Photographer's Mate where I learned the bulk of my craft and was
able to travel throughout Europe. I began studying photographers
such as Jeanloup Sieff, Eric Kroll and Dahmane, and thus began shooting
pinup and erotic imagery in 1994.
Since then, I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the
most beautiful women in the world. I have been published in several
fetish and S&M magazines, and have been featured in various
collection books. I am currently working on my first solo book,
which should be published in the next year or so.
