JAMES LEGOY received a degree in photography from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena in 1982 and immediately opened an advertising photography studio. After 16 very successful years shooting stills he decided to change career paths and started filming commercials and doing lighting on feature films.

James also produces video content for the World Wide Web for clients such as Disney.com and the presidential campaigns of Dennis Kucinich and Ralph Nader. Disney.com has utilized James’ talents for their online campaigns for the films “Meet the Robinsons”, “Bridge to Teribithia,” and “Ratatouille” as well as numerous other projects for the Disney.com website.
James approaches his work by first defining the scope of each project and then figuring out how to get the maximum “bang for the buck” by finding the best solution for the given parameters and achieving the highest quality within the time frame and budget. Sixteen years as an independent advertising photographer has taught him how to get top quality results that serve the client’s creative needs.
