Jim Snyders lives in Powell, Ohio with his wife Judy. He considers himself fortunate to also have a home at Emerald Isle, NC where he loves capturing images of the beauty that surrounds him each day. Jim says, "This area is truly a photographer's paradise."

After a 35-year career with DuPont, photography has provided Jim with both an artistic outlet and an excuse to spend much of his spare time outdoors. 

He became interested in photography at a young age. While serving in the Air Force he completed courses in photography thru the USAF Institute. 

During his tour of duty in Korea in the late 50s, Jim was assigned to photograph some of the USO shows while they were touring bases - not only fun but a great experience.

Jim's photographs have appeared in many textbooks, magazines, news papers, travel brochures and displayed at juried shows in Columbus, Ohio and the Emerald Isle, NC area. He hopes you enjoy his photographs as much as he enjoys creating them.
