About the Speaker
James Staddon is a former homeschool student, now professional photographer and full-time photography educator from Salem, West Virginia.
With a background in graphic design, his keen interest and endless preoccupation with photography eventually led him to start up Lenspiration in 2009 to provide budding photographers with a family-friendly place to learn photography through real-life photo assignments, online training, and hands-on photography workshops. James is a huge fan of outdoor recreation, enjoys dabbling in business entrepreneurship, and is usually on the go with his camera somewhere in the US or abroad. His love for adventure has given him opportunity to develop skills in a wide range of photography genres, from wedding and event photography, to product and landscape photography. Through his ministry, business, and workshops, he loves to see inspiration planted, nurtured, and expressed for the glory of God in the work of other photographers.
James has been speaking, vending, and organizing Photography Teams regularly at homeschool events since 2014. Feel free to stop by the Lenspiration booth for a chat if you happen to be attending any of the following events he plans to attend in 2020:
- July 24-25: Southeast Homeschool Expo, Atlanta, GA
- July 27-31: Family Conference, Big Sandy, TX
- August 21-22: CHAP Convention, Lancaster, PA
- August 27-29: HEAV Convention, Richmond, VA
by shooting photo assignments
At Lenspiration, we learn photography by shooting real-life photo assignments.
Here's how it works:
In this way, we get practical, hands-on training in photography! One month at a time.
And you can shoot your first assignment completely for free. First month of Lenspiration Membership is totally free, and if you like it, you can continue your membership for as long as you want at 30% off forever if you use the Expo-special coupon EXPO30%MO at checkout.

NOT READY TO SHOOT ASSIGNMENTS YET?
If you're new to photography, or if you'd rather take a more structured approach to learning photography, then assignments aren't the only way to learn photography at Lenspiration. Members are welcome to start with the Photography Program and work their way through that first. Workbooks are available for anyone to download for free.
