Moustache Jim

ABOUT

At his core, James Prosper Carmouche (a.k.a Moustache Jim) is an artist. Starting off in childhood with drawing and painting, he spent most of his late teens and twenties cultivating his skills in portraiture, illustrations, and line drawing. James has since transferred his skills in canvas and paper to film photography by “focusing” on composition, lighting, and set design. 

Jim built a darkroom by hand and prints and produces all his film there. Oftentimes this requires making oversized trays, modifying parts of equipment, and mixing chemicals. He becomes completely immersed in this process and each session can take multiple hours to produce a single unique piece.  

In his spare time Jim likes to meditate, produce and listen to music, walk in the woods with friends, spend time with his wife, Mindy, irritate the dog, and make messes, but what really fills him up is his desire to fulfill what he believes is his purpose, to create art.

BUSINESS INQUIRIES

PHOTOSHOOT BOOKING

It would be an honor to hear from you! Shoots often last a few hours, so plan accordingly. I am happy to answer any questions you may have, as each shoot is a unique experience, and like fingerprints, has it's own unique set of prints.

ARTWORK PURCHASING

All prints are produced in the darkroom at Moustache Jim Studios home office, using traditional and alternative chemical processes. All prints are silver gelatin, archival, and produced by hand. Larger prints and hand colorized prints are offered as one of a kind. Editions up to 5 are available for select sizes and prints. 

EXHIBITION

Exhibitions are one of most rewarding parts of the process when it comes to getting my work out into the world. It would be an absolute honor to get the chance to share this with you. I look forward to hearing from you.
