Jim went from being a corporate marketing manager to becoming one of the most recognizable photography brands in Rochester within just two years. Jim was recently voted ‘Rochester’s Best Photographer’ in City Newspaper’s annual reader’s poll for the 4th year in a row. As the son of legendary Kodak photographer Neil Montanus, he has been around photography his entire life. But it wasn’t until his college years that he became intensely interested in photography as journalism major. Of course, it would be impossible for Jim to share his story without talking about how his father Neil Montanus influenced his life and his photography. As a Kodak Photographer, Neil traveled the globe, photographing the worlds most beautiful and exotic locations and some of its most famous people – and from a very young age, Jim often tagged along. Jim started his career as a journalist, but that quickly evolved into photography when he accepted the position of Staff Photographer at the University of Rochester. Then Jim reinvented himself as a corporate marketing manager. Although he has specialized in portraiture and commercial photography, he now spends much of his time on landscape, fine art photography and teaching classes and workshops.
