James Calderaro Photographer

James Calderaro

Became fascinated with the mechanics and surrealism of the crystallized moment at an early age. Snapping the shutter at the right moment to capture forever something that transpired in a split second - to be gone and never seen again - grew into an obsession.

After graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography, he headed to New York City where he worked with Annie Leibovitz, Bill King and Fransesco Scavullo.

James has worked and lived in New York City, Milan, Paris, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Sydney, shooting Advertising and Editorial Fashion and Portraiture for Vogue Italia, Lei, Per Lui, Uomo Vogue, Vogue Espania, Australian Vogue, Interview, Rolling Stone, The New York Times Magazine, Mirabella, Elektra Records, Sony Records and Virgin Records, among others.

The Lenny Kravitz image from the "Mama Said" album is on permanent display at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture.

For the moment, he lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
