About James Hancox Photo Video
I find “About” pages awkward.
You’re supposed to explaining how great you are to work with, while trying not to sound arrogant or like an actor on “As seen on TV” commercials.
This makes it difficult to tell you about James Hancox Photo Video. You can never really know anyone until you’ve spent some time with them either.
Here’s a version I feel more comfortable with…
I’m never happier than when I have a camera in my hand, and someone to point it at. From developing a new concept, to meeting fascinating people, to visiting a new location, to creating something that didn’t exist yesterday… It’s a rush.
Like it says on the front page, there are no limits.
There is something I’m very proud of myself for though…
I was the founder of Photographers for Charity.
We wanted to prove that anyone could be charitable, even if they didn’t have much themselves, by giving of their time and skill. It inspired photographers in 11 different countries to do the same, and even people from different professions from lawyers to carpenters. We tried to do as much as we could, while not taking a single dollar in donations or grants.
From 2009 to 2014, I personally helped thirty-nine organisations, producing and supplying over 5000 images to Non-Profits so they could raise their profile through marketing, and garner much needed support. A great deal more were created working directly with numerous patients battling cancer, or for their family’s.
I have a particular love for working with people with terminal illness, and the organisations involved in their care.
