Interview: James Day, Photographer

Former D&AD Next Photographer Award Judge, James Day, is an internationally renowned photographer working in the advertising and editorial fields. He shoots editorially for The New York Times, Time Magazine, Vanity Fair, GQ, and Wired on a regular basis.

Over the years his images have been used in many award-winning advertising campaigns, for clients such as British Airways, Harvey Nichols, Sony, Audi, and Heineken, to name just a few.

Here, James explains how he broke into the world of advertising, why good communication skills are just as important as a strong portfolio, and the importance of hands-on experience.
