At 12 years old, James Ferrara's cousin let him hold the first single-lens reflex camera he'd ever touched on the condition that he not waste her film. He shot the whole roll, and hasn't stopped since. His obsession with the visual led him to film making, where he worked exclusively for the Saturday Night Live Film Unit for a decade, before deciding to return to his first inspiration – photography. Armed with an in depth understanding of visual story-telling, he opened J.Ferrara Photography and began to capture the stories of people's lives.
While he shoots weddings and engagements on site, Ferrara also hosts portrait and headshot shoots – as well as private parties – in his 1,200 square-foot studio, a former firehouse built in 1905. When not behind his camera, he takes to the classroom instead to teach intimate six-hour classes that teach a small group of students how to handle their camera with hands-on lessons.
