About James Rice Photo

Remember when you were 7? I do, well just about! Someone gave me a plastic camera and I used to scamp around saying “cheese!”. Well, that’s how it all started. Not satisfied with the plastic camera version for long, I pestered my parents for the real thing and eventually got my father's hand me down, Nikon EF300. My passion for photography had started...... It became more of an obsession whilst I was studying at Bournemouth University. Staring at a lecture book for days on end only fuelled my desire to pick up my camera and capture life through my lens. I also spent every summer holiday in Cyprus where I became besotted with the breath-taking Troodos mountains. Rich in photo opportunities, I’d spend my days walking through the pine scented forests, photographing birds of prey or wandering around remote monasteries, rich in history. I also collected numerous rocks, stones and insects from beaches. All of which I would store under my bed much to my Cypriot grandmother's disgust! Home for me now, aged 40 something or other, is a rambling old Edwardian house, stuffed with eclectic paraphernalia set in the heart of our beautiful Sussex countryside. I live with my wife, my two daughters and my wife’s extensive shoe collection! I kid you not, it rivals that of Imelda Marcos. We have 12 rescue animals, who regularly feature in splendid photo shoots. They are undoubtedly the most challenging of subjects to photograph! Making a Vietnamese Pot Bellied Pig look good is a challenge and takes some patience! I guess it proves there is beauty in every subject! My camera is always to hand which means my poor suffering family are often subjected to that “can’t be missed photo opportunity moment”, (sorry girls, I just can’t help myself!). I believe that it's my passion for photography and seeing the world "framed" that makes me a good photographer …. identifying that incredible shot and capturing it. I recognise the importance of photographs and how incredibly emotive they can be and I enjoy the responsibility of capturing these special moments. It’s a passion that has and will stay with me forever. My photography is all based around capturing "that moment" so is best described as candid/reportage. I do set scenes but try where possible to have everyone feeling relaxed and natural. If you would like me to photograph your event, loved one, business or product then please contact me.

Kath W.'s review on Jan 09, 2018

If you need a photographer, look no further than James. What can I say - as a starter, he's fabulous. James was professional, engaging, communicative and super friendly from start to finish. He delivered everything and more we were looking for, in super efficient time and even made a few adjustments for fussy-me !! I can not thank James enough for capturing everything that was the night of my 50th party. The quality of his work is exceptional and we will definitely work with him again (if he can cope !!). James you're a gem, thank you. Kath & Glenn

Alison C.'s review on Nov 12, 2017

I was becoming increasingly aware that I only had “cute” pictures of the boys of when they were young, and less of them as they approached their teenage years. The problem I faced was the reluctance. “aw, Mum!”, or the secretive “selfies”. I felt it was time to address this problem before it was too late. The boys all agreed to go along with the idea of getting someone in to take photos, provided that person was on trend, fun and relaxed. Having done a lot of research and phoning around, I decided that James sounded like he’d tick all the boxes without costing a fortune. He certainly did, the boys had a good laugh and I was delighted with the outcome. Thank you James, the photos will be treasured for years to come and we all look forward to our next photo shoot!

Vince D.'s review on Nov 07, 2017

We couldn't be more delighted with James Rice Photo on our salon photoshoot day. James is a true professional, extremely talented and worked very discreetly. We were especially pleased with the natural moments he captured in the salon and the excellent coverage he gave us of our business. Its really great to have such good quality shots of our salon to use and to keep for our marketing plan – something that I have been putting off for a while. Above all, having no photography knowledge or experience it was so nice for us to feel at ease after our initial meeting with James and have the confidence that we made a good choice in what can be an overwhelming decision given there so much competition out there. Would very highly recommend for an all round fantastic service.

Wedding Photography
Rachel K.'s review on Nov 06, 2017

When Tom and I were planning our wedding at the beginning of this year, we were looking for a photographer that was professional and personable. It was important to me to have photos to look back on and to have someone who could capture the biggest day of our lives in a way that reflected our personalities and the sincere feeling of the day without any pretense and we found that in James. I had it in my head that I wanted everything about the wedding to be done by family and friends and people we knew to keep it as intimate and relaxed as possible. James was the perfect man for the job as our wedding photographer as he was so friendly and charming with all the guests and ourselves, he just fitted in like one of the family and put everyone at ease. All our guests loved him and said what a wonderful job he did. Prior to the wedding day he was fantastic at sitting down with us to get to know both of us a bit more, find out details about the wedding and what we were after and even took us out for a test shoot to check out our venue locations and possible places to take photos of us between venues. It really helped put us at ease as we weren't used to having our photos taken. On the day, James and his lovely wife Serena came to my parents house where the bridemaids and I were getting ready. What I found so special about him was the perfect balance he had of melting into the background and joining in the moments just at the right times, I felt completely comfortable the whole day, both supported and not too overwhelmed. The meadow shoot we did inbetween leaving the wedding venue and arriving at our reception was so much fun. James had found the perfect spot for the type of landscape photos I had been talking to him about. And the mix of formal group shots and beautifully candid moments of our family and friends that he managed to capture were amazing. He hit the nail on the head. Throughout the whole process James has been so supportive and helpful and put in so much effort with great results and Tom and I and both our families couldn't have been happier. Thank you James! xx
