I'm a fashion, editorial and portrait photographer based out of Singapore.

I think I get the photography gene from my mother. She used to have this old Agfa rangefinder at home and hundreds of pictures loosely stored in plastic bags piled one on top of the other. Some afternoons when friends used to visit, we’d just sit and pore through these pictures, marvelling at (or more often laughing at) the outrageous fashions from the ’70s. My eye would be drawn to the cars and the look of that era and fascinated, I would go back again and again to look at these pictures.

The high standards that photographers like T.S. Satyan, Homai Vyarawalla,  Zack Arias, David Alan Harvey, Chase Jarvis, William Klein, Sebastiao Salgado, Steve McCurry, Raghubir Singh, Prabuddha Dasgupta, Mario Testino, David Bailey, Annie Leibovitz, James Nachtwey, Shahidul Alam among many many others have set is what I aspire to as a photographer.

I love being a photographer and if there’s such a thing as rebirth, would only ask that I be reborn as a photographer (preferably with a Leica or two).Having spent several years plotting my escape out of corporate jobs, I see being a photographer as a calling and this is a privilege I don’t wear lightly.

My work has been published in  Vogue India, Conde Nast Traveller India, The Hindu, Gulf News, Times of India, Deccan Chronicle and Entrepreneur Magazine.

I'm available in Singapore and the region for actor headshots, corporate portraits, editorial and environmental assignments and of course for commercial advertising photography. 

I invite you to go through my website and to give me a call at +6582022965 or email boban@bobanjames.com  to discuss potential assignments.
