Bavosi PhotoArt

Jim is lifelong resident of central Massachusetts. His acquired his first camera, an Olympus rangefinder, in 1969. Very quickly, he knew that he wanted to become more than a hobbyist. Having received formal instruction while at SMU in the early 1970s, he credits his professors Ted Meade and Elaine Fisher with training him in classic 35mm photography and helping him develop a critical eye toward his subjects and art in general. After graduation, he operated a studio and concentrated on weddings, portraiture and photojournalism. By 1976, marriage and buying a home caused him to secure more steady employment. His involvement with picture taking became limited to filling up family albums. Now, decades later, he has revisited the hobby. As with all his passions, he has done so in a big way. His love for outdoor work, coupled with early commercial experience has helped him to “pose” (frame) his nature subjects. In order to bring an image beyond a snapshot recording, he attempts to evoke a feeling or mood from the picture without sacrificing technical accuracy.
Jim’s equipment choices are Sony, Canon, Fuji, Samsung and Olympus; not necessarily in that order. Because he still admires the 35mm era he frequently uses older manually focused legacy lenses on DSLR cameras of similar size to the classic 35s. Virtually all of his photographs are taken outdoors. None of his work is ever shot in a studio. Not wanting to miss the moment or be encumbered by a tripod, he usually avoids them unless absolutely necessary. Since hand held shooting can be difficult, he has had to use methods to compensate for this. When in the field, he generally avoids people. He regards them as less cooperative than landscapes. Often, he spends 80% of his time scouting and 20% of his time collecting. When he does begin to collect images, he does so prolifically.
The advent of digital photography has permitted the limitless alteration of captured images when they are worked at the desktop stage of processing. For this reason, Jim does all of the post processing and printing himself and spends many hours doing so. Jim wishes to present his own creative viewpoint of the subject matter. Even though he is nearing retirement age, he believes that his best creative years are before him.
Galleries at Imagekind.com contain over 1400 of Jim’s images. Most of those have been made in the last five years. He has had his work represented for sale at Tower Hill Botanical Gardens, Borders Book Stores, Hopkinton Card and Gift, Tovah and Company and Heart and Stone in Northboro, MA . He was fortunate to be chosen as a shop artist and an exhibitor at The Danforth Museum in Framingham.
Currently, Jim is an employment specialist with a large non-profit organization. He helps people with special needs secure jobs. In the past, he has: taught academics and shop at Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational High School, owned his own landscape company for eighteen years and been a buyer for The Bose Corporation.
