Growing up in Pittsburgh the world of industry was all around him and by his late teens an interest in railroads was the spark that led him to pick up his first camera. Jim Cunningham went on to get a degree in Design and Visual Communications from Southern Illinois University. He then returned to his hometown and began his career at Pittsburgh’s largest and busiest studio and later was staff photographer for Bechtel Corporation on overseas assignment for 2 years in Saudi Arabia. With his accumulated expertise his studio has been serving Corporate and Industrial clientele throughout the US by providing exceptional images of their people, products and facilities. Jim Cunningham‘s work has taken him into coal mines, steel mills, rail yards and dozens of manufacturing plants as well as medical centers and corporate offices throughout the US and worldwide. He has hung out of helicopters,
crawled around in a 38 inch coal mine and gone up 200 ft in a crane bucket to get that special angle of view.
“I love the challenge of going into a situation and making something interesting out of what is seemingly something uninteresting. I think the reason I like photography so much is also because of all the interesting new worlds it has opened up to me. I wouldn’t trade the people I’ve met and the places I’ve been to because of it for anything.” Jim Cunningham
