March 2023 – May 2023


My passion of photography ignited when I built a box camera from an old shoebox way back in elementary school. Since then, photography has been an extension of my creativity and the palette for my work. I derived my appreciation of the natural world’s grandeur while growing up in northern Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan. I continue to visit these pristine areas time and again along with new locations, capturing them in just the right light or from a slightly different angle. I received my formal education from Northland College in Ashland, WI, located on the shores of my beloved Lake Superior which continues to be the hub of my photography. Currently, I balance my life and work between our Cable, WI home, nestled in the Chequamegon National Forest, and our home in the Twin Cities. I am continuously inspired by photography since subject matter, technology, and techniques are ever changing, keeping me living on the edge by taking on the impossible and turning it into a successful shot.

The foundation of my photography centers on capturing the personality of my subject regardless if it’s an old barn, a bride and groom on their wedding day, nature, a newborn portrait, or a sunrise on Lake Superior. They all possess a personality and are unique. I am tenacious in capturing those personalities and conveying them to all of my customers along with providing exceptional photography and videography services.
The best thing I can suggest for you and your family is to hire a true professional photographer like myself, to capture the precious moments in your life. Yielding images that will become keepsakes to cherish forever.
If you are ever in Hayward, WI, you owe it to yourself to stop in at our studio and gallery to see all of our work up close and personal, we are located in downtown Hayward next to the West’s Dairy Ice Cream on Second Street. Our accommodating staff will be more than happy to answer all of your questions about the photography services we offer. ~ James Netz
