I’m James Lomax, The Walking Photographer.

I’ve been running this site since 2005 as a presentation space for photographs and articles. My writing has changed a great deal and used to include semi academic pieces continuing university interests. There’s a vast amount of material here, some of it written years ago, which I would probably edit and modify to represent me now.

Similarly with my photographs, I specialise in mountain and outdoor work coinciding with my hobby. Years ago again, I used to pursue other subjects.

My web site is a photo diary, gallery, catalogue and teaching resource, which I now use as the basis for publication material I’m developing offline.

You can buy my photographs (contact me) and I’m trying to find other ways of using what I think is high quality material. I’m not seeking traffic based on “interaction” irrespective of it’s meaning. In essence my site is like an old school home page: in geek terms, Web One rather than Web Two. I’ve started working with video and maybe this sums me up:

BA (Hons) Literature and Psychology, PGCE (FE), MA Creative Technology, MA Photography. My English degree from Lancaster University gave me a training in literary analysis which I think is uniquely and broadly valuable. Literature study equips you with critical skills, empathy skills, and narrative understanding which is useful far beyond a literary text. My MA degrees developed my academic training further combined with technical and cultural studies.

I’m a PGCE qualified teacher with diverse experience. I’ve taught English, IT, and photography in Adult and Further Education.

In my first MA degree I researched the photographic aesthetic to inform my projects in multimedia and video. In my second MA in Photography I undertook major projects in environmental portraiture and jazz music, and mountain photography. Some of that material is archived here.

I’m featured in this book:

And this is me photographing in Manchester; someone had snapped me for a change:


High quality prints at approximately 11” x 8” for £15 (A4), and 16” x 10” for £25 (A3). Prices include postage and packing, different sizes available by special arrangement.

My photographs are produced with care at every stage. I make technical Photoshop adjustments only, replicating traditional darkroom techniques. I use a Canon 5D, Sony A7R, and Canon L Series lenses.


To purchase my images as digital files or web-ready graphics contact me to discuss format, licensing and fees.


If you like my work and have a project in mind, short or long term, contact me as below.


Lake District photography and Pyrenees photography are where my greatest interests lie. I’ve also got 60,000 words I’m playing around with.


Facebook and all that groovy stuff:


Twitter and all that loony stuff:


YouTube and all that video stuff:
