About Jim Pinckney

Before opening my first studio on Cannery Row In Monterey, I was an assistant to Walter Swarthout, a well known advertising photographer in San Francisco. Later on, I worked as a photographer in New York City and then as a cinematographer in Miami. I have been back in California since 2000 and I am now shooting from my great photo and film production space in downtown Monterey. I invite you to join our family of satisfied clients.
