Pioneer Natural Resources

“James was great.  Easy to work with, knows the area and how to shoot the industry.  Comes with his own PPE if that tells you anything. We worked with him during a Wall Street Journal photoshoot of Parsley operations.  The Wall Street Journal was actually very excited to book him and really liked the photos they ended up with. I did as well and purchased them after the shoot. You’ll see his photos regularly on walls around Midland.”
