My Navy Photography career is ending. A review of some of my published photos:

As much as it pains me, I have decided to end my time with the Navy. I started out in the Navy doing what I thought was my life's passion; Musician, but then after my first enlistment was up, I realized that it was not for me. I then changed my job to photo-journalist and haven't put the camera down since.

Here are just a few of my photos from my short career as a navy photographer. :-(


100412-N-1376S-237 SAN DIEGO (April 12, 2010) Machinist Mate 2nd Class Christopher Monroe, assigned to the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), holds his newborn son for the first time. Carl Vinson conducted humanitarian and disaster relief operations in Haiti during Operation Unified Response and held partnership exercises with seven Latin American countries as part of Southern Seas 2010. The ship is completing a homeport change from Norfolk, Va. to San Diego, Calif. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class James R. Stanley/Released)


110212-N-1376S-260 SAN DIEGO (Feb. 12, 2011) The U.S. Navy parachute demonstration team, the Leap Frogs, carry an American flag during a performance for spectators attending the Centennial of Naval Aviation Open House and Parade of Flight at Naval Air Station North Island. The Navy is observing the Centennial of Naval Aviation with a series of nationwide events celebrating 100 years of heritage, progress and achievement in naval aviation. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class James R. Stanley Jr./Released)


110212-N-1376S-335 SAN DIEGO (Feb. 12, 2011) The U.S. Navy flight demonstration squadron, the Blue Angels, fly over San Diego Harbor during the kick off of the Parade of Flight, an air show showcasing historic and current Naval aircraft in celebration of the Centennial of Naval Aviation. The Navy is observing the Centennial of Naval Aviation with a series of nationwide events celebrating 100 years of heritage, progress and achievement in naval aviation. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class James R. Stanley Jr./Released)


110210-N-1376S-213 PACIFIC OCEAN (Feb. 10, 2011) An AV-8B Harrier assigned to the Black Sheep of Marine Attack Squadron (VMA) 214 takes off from the amphibious assault ship USS Peleliu (LHA 5) during training exercises off the coast of Southern California. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd class James R. Stanley/Released)


110210-N-1376S-392 PACIFIC OCEAN (Feb. 10, 2011) Sailors aboard the amphibious assault ship USS Peleliu (LHA 5) conduct repair locker training. More than 100 crew members will participated in the hands-on firefighting exercise. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class James R. Stanley Jr./Released)


I have thousands of photos that I have taken and I love every one of them. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to tell the Navy story to the world, and I will forever miss being a US Navy Sailor.

I feel like I've seen this one on AKO before. True?

James, I really enjoy looking at your photos. I'm getting ready to start classes for my Bachelor of Science for Digital Photography soon & like looking at some of your photos for inspiration. I too want to make a career out of it.

Good luck to you sir.

Good luck on your studies James, I know you will do well and you take amazing shots. I am into photography as a hobby and hope I can get photos like you. I have never seen my car in photos from a true professional and you made my car look beautiful.
