I have had the privilege of working directly with James Lee and Journey Seven regularly in my role with Richmond-based nonprofit Needle’s Eye Ministries. James is always our go-to for videography and photography for recording events, speakers, interviews, and promotional videos. James is rare as someone who has an exceptional work ethic, a very high standard of excellence, and is simultaneously laid back and easy to work with in every setting. Our most recent project was a promotional video for an upcoming conference where I would (off camera) interview local CEOs and business leaders. The final product met all of our expectations and James not only filmed and edited the video but helped me come up with provocative interview questions and made the business leaders feel comfortable. I cannot recommend James and Journey Seven highly enough and we will continue to work with him for our videography and photography needs in the future.

As a Realtor, I had professional head shots in the past but they never boosted my confidence, until I worked with James! When I reached out to James he offered me several packages and I immediately selected the most comprehensive as I loved the idea of not only having head shots, but also having lifestyle photos I could use for branding purposes and for social media. James quickly booked our shoot and made a recommendation for a make-up artist and she was also fantastic, going to show James vision. The shoot itself was SO FUN as James puts you at ease, making you feel confident and empowered. Once the shoot was over, James had the photos back to me within a week, allowing me to weigh in on the editing process, which was important for this self proclaimed control freak! Since our shoot I have recommended James to everyone and have loved seeing my friends also be thrilled with their images. THANKS, JAMES!

“Working with James is a beautifully packaged deal of finesse, quality, talent, direction, hilarity, and pure fun! When he and I began chatting about my vision for a promo video for my hair & makeup business, I was fairly clueless about the style, content, and details I wanted until he encouraged me to seek out certain looks and write out a script. Not only did he give me vital pointers on how to best marketing my brand through words, but he kindly edited my script, mic-ed me up, set up a TelePrompTer, and gave me presentation advice, all within a brief but all-encompassing timeframe. The artistic directing portion of the video was all his idea too! I supplied the decor & tools of the trade, but he set up each scene with such precision and agility that it never felt dull, and I never questioned his choices. All in all, I’m in awe of the result and James’ dedication to his craft and am so grateful he allowed me to be a part of his technical and heartfelt creation.”
