Early in his education and professional life, James followed a path of becoming an IT professional, but decided to change direction to what has become his true passion in life — photography.
Attending FIT and Parsons, Pickett was able to hone is creativity and set himself up for a career behind the lens.
Spending most of his professional life as a freelance photographer, Pickett has now made Elevation Ten Thousand his home. Being able to freeze time through images and videos keeps his creativity moving each day. Time is a valuable asset, one that we cannot get back, being able to capture a moment in time drives Pickett each day.
