James McDonald is an international interior photographer, based in London, and works for some of the world's leading interior designers.  

Having worked for magazines such as World of Interiors and House and Garden, he brings an editorial style to capturing private houses in a natural light style, whilst also understanding the different photographic style needed to best illustrate products or the design of public spaces such as hotels.

Examples of his work can be seen on shoots of The Academicians’ Room at the Royal Academy, Sexy Fish and The Ivy in London, Sessanta at SIXTY SoHo hotel in New York, Soho Beach House Miami, The Confidante Miami Beach hotel, Café Boulud at the Four Seasons in Toronto, East Mama in Paris and the Rocco Forte Assila Hotel in Jeddah. 

James enjoys working on books. He is the author and photographer of "Alnwick Castle - The Home of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland", published by Frances Lincoln, and photographed "Alidad: The Timeless Home", which is published by Rizzoli.

Aside from interior photography, his work includes private portrait and still life commissions for Middle Eastern royalty and European families, and has worked with auction houses on books for top private clients.
