Jim Wimberg has not only survived the Los Angeles photography scene - but actually thrived in it. Jim spent 30 years with Mercier Wimberg Photography Culver City, CA - photographing all manner of products for advertising, collateral, packaging and digital marketing. He and his business partner Mark Mercier, made the transition to digital capture in 1998. Along with providing high level photography, they also offered premium retouching as a “one stop shop” for their clients.
In 2015, Jim was recruited to establish the photography department at American International Industries - a beauty and personal care products manufacturing company in Commerce, CA. As lead photographer, Jim enjoys photographing stylized products and models for their many beauty brands.
Jim has always loved art and his passion for photography runs long and deep, going back to age 16 when his dad requested that he teach him how to use his new 35mm Ricoh camera. With his personal work, Jim likes to explore other subject matter including train graffiti, macro-botanicals, nudes, abstract water-forms and still life.
“I love studying how light behaves. I especially enjoy the challenge of manipulating light to achieve the mood and visual impact I’m looking for.” – Jim Wimberg
