Competition: “No Theme” with Judge Jim Steele

January 22, 2019 @ 7:15 pm - 9:30 pm

January’s Competition Judge is Jim Steele. There is no theme. 

James Steele is a photographer in the tradition of Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. Working primarily in medium and large format, his “scapes” of land, sea, and body represent the finest in traditional and digital photographic imagery.

Jim has studied with Cole Weston, George Tice, Joyce Tenneson, Christopher James, Carson Graves, and Martha Casanave.

In our DC area his work can be seen in Studio #343 in the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria.

Jim has taught workshops and photography courses at the Art League School in Alexandria, the Smithsonian, Visarts, Photoworks, Inc, at Glen Echo Park and has guest lectured at Georgetown University. He has also taught numerous workshops in digital printing.

“First and foremost, I photograph what interests me, until it no longer interests me; then I photograph something else. Most of my work is landscapes and figure studies executed with both traditional and digital materials.”

“In the end, it’s not about the process, it’s about the image. It either works or it doesn’t.”




B.S./M.S. Industrial Engineering, University of Missouri. Master photography classes with George Tice, Carson Graves, Christopher James, Cole Weston, Joyce Tenneson, and Martha Casanave.


Jim Steele is a photographer working in both monochrome and color landscapes and nudes. Steele is equally comfortable in both traditional and digital processes.
