Though traditionally a landscape photographer, James found that art buyers were increasingly interested in seeing his more conceptual animal and people photography. Surprisingly, James does not use stock photography, and shoots each of the elements with the final image in mind.

Quantz is featured in this month’s AfterCapture magazine, which goes into depth about a few of the images above (the killer whale’s actually a plastic toy!), and also shows the complex compositing that goes into his work. You can read their story here.
