James Barkman is a documentary and editorial photographer who is inspired most by the mountains and the sea.
Born and raised on an ostrich farm in rural Pennsylvania, James is a seeker and gatherer of genuine stories and experiences, and has a soft spot in his heart for anything analog. A tendency to live on the grittier side of the fence, he would probably rather be dusty than clean, cold than warm, and values risk over comfort.
At the moment, James is living off his '96 DR650 and riding from Alaska to Patagonia.
