James Barkman | Lifestyle Photographer

Code Canyon



After cruising out to the West Coast from Pennsylvania in his VW Bus for a photography internship, James Barkman has set his sights on living on his own terms. For him this means perfecting his craft by hunting down photo-ops full time in his Westfalia with Surfboards on top and a Dual-Sport Motorcycle in tow.

*DISCLAIMER: DO NOT CLIMB ON POWER LINE TOWERS. EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.

James, 22, might not be as conventional when it comes to his living arrangements, but creating a space to be creative in the form of his Westfalia, has pushed him further than he ever thought he’d go.

Balancing maintenance and repairs on the Westy with a promising career in photography are just a few of the many things the talented Mr. Barkman excels at, and we wish him the best of luck has he continues to grow on his journey.

    several thousands of dollars in gear? Vintage VW van which also cost several thousands of dollars? Hmmmmm…. #tagthesponser . Get real people. How many of you can save up the money for the camera lens and body alone? My bullshit detector is going off.
