Jim Morrison IV

I live in Los Angeles, California but grew up on the East Coast of Canada. .

I won't lie.... I have a dream job. This job has blessed me with travel to almost every continent and 40+ countries around the world and given me access to the full range of the human experience. 

 I love my job. I am a passionate storyteller. I am grateful for it everyday. 

I work primarily as a director. I have done dozens music videos and commercials, TV shows and documentaries. I am a camera nerd, so I also find myself working as a Director of Photography.  I have also produced literally hundreds of hours of content. 

I've directed over 200 eps of Television that has played on networks all over the world. Food Network, CBC, FYI,  National Geographic, TLC, Discovery, UKTV,  Biography, etc... 

As a photographer I came up shooting travel and documentary then moved into fashion and music - but now feel more at home shooting portrait photography. 

Je parle français. 

I enjoy a fine scotch.
