At Stereotype Co we never let distance get in the way of collaborating with people. We recently had the opportunity to work with photographer James Adams III on a photoshoot. James has been on a roll over since getting into photography. His photography caught our eye from the work he did with our mutual friend OddKidOut. We had a chance to sit down with James for an exclusive photographer in our series 'Respect the Shooter'.
How did you get into photography/videography?
I got into photography/ videography through watching anime and reading comic books. Always was attracted to the unique universe that was built in each story.
What did you first use to take photos?
I used my mom’s iphone 4s at the time because I didn’t have an iphone of my own and I didn’t have any money to buy myself a camera haha.
Where do you go to school?
I go to Temple University in Philadelphia. Pretty dope college.
What is currently your favorite class this semester?
My favorite at the moment is Criminal Justice and along side that is Race Relations. Very important classes with very great professors. Shouts out to them.
Do you have any nicknames? How did you get that name?
My homies and day ones on Instagram call me the “Senpai” meaning the master in Japenese. Silly but it’s hella badass. I got that name because being heavily influenced in anime, I began to mix it with my style of photography…hence giving way to the nickname.
If you could take photos of any 3 people who would it be?
Most definitely Kendrick Lamar, President Barack Obama, and Cara Delevingne…love her.
