Part of the work has been capturing their talented students in action during class, camps, summer intensive programs and performances. The assests obtained help give The Patel Conservatory's Advertising and Marketing Departments plenty of options to support their brand in their yearly brochures and other media to promote their brand.

Tampa 24 Hours http://www.fotosetbyjames.com/blog/2018/4/tampa-24-hours Tampa, FL. April 7, 2018: James Luedde, Tampa Bay area Photographer, represented Tampa in The World’s Largest Street Photography Event April 7, 2018. The24HourProject began at 12:01am where over 2500 participants from over 700 cities and 150 countries set out in their city to create and share one photo per hour during twenty four hours. On one single day we get to see the world from a different point of view, humanity documented by local photographers. Through the 24HourProject’s mission, values and global exhibitions, the project reaches millions of individuals annually showcasing the human connection of images and real live stories. In addition to documenting humanity throughout the Tampa Bay area James also documented stories of women in concert with the project’s additional theme in 2018, documenting stories of women around the world. As a way to empower women, this year the 24HourProject is collaborating with Shakti Vahini, a non-profit organization in India which empowers, educates and defends women and their human rights. More information about the project can be found at http://24hourproject.org/ or via Instagram @24hourproject.


“Prior to the project start date I was excited and nervous at the same time. Spending 24 consecutive hours on the street shooting brings challenges in itself. My personal “Thin Line Project” thethinlineproject.com where street photography and my personal feelings and emotions intersect have given me a comfort level in doing this type of work. However, there is a level of fear, vulnerability and challenge to create that swirls up a nervous but exciting feeling. I hoped to just let go and see where the 24 hours would take me. I did it once in New York City and always wanted to shoot for 24 hours here in my hometown. Seems meant to be in some way. I have to say I was not let down. I made connections with strangers, challenged my ability to create and pushed my comfort limit while documenting what I felt and saw.” – James Luedde

The photos in the gallery represent a selection of photos over the 24 hour period. Some were shared as part of the actual project representing an hour in Tampa Bay at any given time. There are a few select photos that were interesting enough to include in the gallery after the fact.

The selection of hourly photos can be seen on Instagram at @fotosetbyjames

Art of The Brick - Nathan Sawaya's First Pitch at The Rays http://www.fotosetbyjames.com/blog/2017/6/art-of-the-brick---nathan-sawayas-first-pitch-at-the-rays A couple weeks ago I was contacted by one of Nathan's associates and hired to help document his expereince leading up to and throwing the first pitch at the Tampa Bay Rays game on June 21st 2017. It was a great time and experience to hang with Nathan and his team. The impact of his work using Legos as a medium really appeals to all ages and if different ways.. a beautiful thing about art. The Art of The Brick exhibit runs through September 2nd in Tampa and was made possible by the Vinik Family Foundation. Be sure to check it out!

Hillsborough Community College Men's Basketball http://www.fotosetbyjames.com/blog/2015/11/hillsborough-community-college-mens-basketball I have the opportunity of working with the HCC Hawks Athletics Department here in Tampa, FL. Each year we arrange for team and individual photos and sometimes have some extra time to play around. Here I had about 10 extra minutes so why not put down the heavy DLSR and pull out my recent pickup of a Nikon Coolpixa. Its really fun to play with and very strobe friendly with its electronic shutter! Not much post processing here.. just some tones and a crop.
