My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of working with Jim for our maternity photos. We couldn’t have made a better decision! Jim finds a way to make you feel at peace with yourself, even if being photographed makes you very nervous! Jim’s kindness and gentle soul seep out of his pores. The photos exceeded all of our expectations and the experience was absolutely memorable. Thank you, Jim!  ~ Casey and Hugo

Jim is a perfectionist with photography. He captures the essence of the subject and delivers a visual message in a profound way that creates a timeless, dreamlike perception. Technically clean, artistically beautiful. ~ Ronnie M. – Yogini


“I had the opportunity to work with James and his work is amazing! He was on time, very professional, and he has the talent to capture your natural beauty!! I’m very happy with the final results of this photoshoot!
Definitely, I recommend his services !!!”~ Andrea P.

“After a very bad experience with a different photographer, I was really nervous and skittish. Jim took the time to calm my nerves and put me at ease. I could not be happier with the results. My new headshots by Jim are wonderful! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for great headshots and a pleasant, professional photo session.” ~ Penny L

“I think it’s obvious that James Zink is an incredibly talented photographer. You don’t have to take my word for it – just take a look at his portfolio. Incredible, stunning, one-of-a-kind images on every single shoot. Moments are captured in crystal clarity, never looking rehearsed or forced. He consistently gets THOSE SHOTS that everyone wishes they could have gotten. I already knew how good he was before I worked with him (I mean, I do have eyes). But what Jim does goes even further than his above-and-beyond levels of talent and skill as an artist.
I am not a model, and not even particularly photogenic. When Jim brought me in on a professional fashion shoot, I thought I might throw up from nerves. I was so worried I’d be a huge disappointment and pretty much waste everyone’s time. However, Jim made me feel like the most important person in the room – even though the room was populated by pro models, stylists, and other seasoned and beautiful people.
He has a rare ability to make even the most awkward among us feel comfortable and open. And, somehow, he is able to bring out and capture fierceness and beauty that we may not have even recognized in ourselves.”
Thank you so much, Raina. You were someone who surprised a lot of people in the industry but only confirmed what I saw in you. ~ Raina B

“We have had James photograph our Bokwa Fitness event and also video shoots just this past week. He is absolutely amazing at capturing every perfect moment. He always shows up with a smile on his face and is so fun to be around. He definitely knows what he’s doing!! He is also very quick at uploading the photos to his page too. Love love, love his work. An absolute artist.” ~ Arielle N

“The pictures are beautiful, Jim! Thank you so much for all the beautiful candid photos, as well as all the posed ones! We are so happy with your work and it was a pleasure to work with you! There were a few problems that night in general and not everything turned out as we had hoped, but you made the photography the EASY part and we are so grateful! Thank you!” ~ Linda and Stephen V.


“It’s really great to be able to know someone who can capture the aspects of feminine beauty the way you do. You’d be a success no matter what city you lived in because your philosophy, aesthetic, and ideals put you in a very elite class of artistic photographer who stands out anywhere he goes”. ~ La Chat Designs, Memphis, Tenn.

“(Your photography) captures the essence of a subject’s personality. – Your talent is so refreshing and energizing for women (like me) who want to feel good about the way they look and are intimidated by photos of models and such with perfect bodies and smiles. ~ Chrystal R.

“I had a great time on the shoot and you guys really made me feel beautiful. To this day I am using the make-up techniques and everyone keeps talking about my newfound confidence. Thank you guys so much!” ~ Candace S

“James, you have such a gift for capturing the unique glamorous essence in each woman. We women are very fortunate to be able to see ourselves through the lens of your creative vision. I feel so lucky to know a modern master of classic pin-up, glamour, and sophistication.” ~ La Chat Designs, Memphis, Tenn

“Jim Zink’s friendly yet professional outlook on photography has not only produced my best images and compositions but has also made the experience enjoyable and rewarding. Jim’s primary focus has been to satisfy my needs and desires while discretely prompting, inspiring, and stimulating the best poses and looks out of me; resulting in incredible team photography. He goes further than the man behind the camera and helps individuals like myself to develop and grow to make the subject feel confident and safe in any type of shoot.

As well as his fantastic persona Jim’s photographic skills exceed those of the many photographers I have ever worked with internationally. His understanding and respect for each individual element of a photograph have, and will continue to create an incomparable quality of photographs. From the subject itself to the lighting, Jim considers each component and how it can alter numerous results in the final image.

Jim himself and all his brilliant capabilities have made working with him the most amazing and gratifying photographic and personal experience in this industry. I look forward to continuing to shoot with Jim Zink and am eager to see the new images to come. Thank you, Jim, truly a remarkable photographer.”
