As a Commercial photographer, JAMES KERR is best known for photographing Houses, Gardens, Interiors, & Landscapes.

His work can also be found in a variety of publications from magazines to coffee table books.

He lives near Stratford upon Avon, UK  and travels nationally and internationally for his work.

Now semi retired as a photographer in order to  concentrate on his painting, he still works on various commissions and for some retained clients. 

“I attempt to capture the sublime moments of time and place, endeavouring to create images

that go beyond the purely representational. I seek simplicity and try to impose some order on unruly nature.

I look for the abstracted qualities of geometry and structure that underpin all good works of art.” 


He has three illustrated  coffee table style books on the First World War published -  See published work and a contributor to several more
