Meet our guest

James Neihouse attended Brooks Institute of Photography where he received his bachelor’s degree in 1976. Soon after his graduation, James was part of the film crew that shot the first underwater film (Ocean) in the IMAX format.

Since that time, James has gone on to work on more than 35 IMAX and other large-format films, including A Beautiful Planet, The Dream Is Alive, and NASCAR 3D. Through his work with the IMAX Space Team, James has trained more than 150 astronauts and cosmonauts on the intricacies of filming large format in space aboard the space shuttle, Russian MIR space station, and International Space Station.   

When not working on a film set, he teaches filmmaking at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida, and leads photographic workshops to amazing locations.
