The American Shutterbug Society

James Roney

Ceo & founder of The American Shutterbug Society


At the tender age of 13, I discovered that I was a hopeless shutterbug, then in 1987, I founded The American Shutterbug Society dedicated to helping aspiring photographers. I have literally spent all of my adult years photographing beautiful mountain scenes to waterfalls, surreal sunsets, to cool looking trees, landscapes to cityscapes or whatever else catches my eye. Hopefully you'll find my photography to be off the beaten path that invokes your inner self with a profound sense of self.

Over one hundred of my signature images have been turn into fine oil paintings worth thousands. My work is also found in magazines, on television, in film, school books, thousands of postcards, calendars, billboards, maps, Virginia tourism, to state visitor centers, and my photography is also used with a wide array of products and services. Since I use the finest cameras and lenses there is, you can count on quality images that you'll be proud to hang on your wall or give as a gift.

With that said, please stop by often if you like what you see here as I will always be adding new photos to my galleries. Note this gallery is brand new, and thus I will be getting as many photos up as quickly as possible.

Thanks for stopping by.
