My name is James T. Futrell and I’m a Professional Photographer based in Ledyard, Connecticut. I started out as a Professional about 2 years ago. I’ve competed the New York Institute for Photography School and now just learn by doing. I just shoot everything I can and figure out how to improve each shot. In 2013, I was part of the media crew that covered the 2013 Commencement Ceremony at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in which Vice President Joe Biden deliver the keynote address. (sample pics below).
I am U.S. Coast Guard Retired after serving my country for 22 years. I guess my love for taking pictures started there after traveling all around and seeing different parts of the world.
At present I run my business Strictly Digital Photography from a studio that I built in the basement of my home. For the most part, I’m a natural light photographer and shoot outdoors 98% of the time. I shoot mainly portraits, but like I mentioned above, I will shoot just about anything. Please fill free to contact me if interested in scheduling a shoot!
