Jim Golden Studio is an embodiment of its owner’s aesthetic vision. Jim first learned his craft in the fast-paced, competitive world of New York advertising, where he spent several years working as a high-end compositor and visual effects specialist. It was a stressful way to make a living, but it was a great way to learn about the industry. Still, he often found his mind drifting to the snowy slopes of far-away mountains . . . So in 2000, with a sense of manifest destiny, he packed his bags and headed West, settling in Portland where he opened his full-service photography and digital imaging studio. Jim lives in Portland with his wife and two children. He does not miss New York.
