Hello my name is James Ferry and I’m a photographer in Columbia MD.
I do Headshots, Business Portraits, Family Portraits, Senior Portraits, Commercial Photography, Photographic Restoration and Wedding Photography.
I have a music education degree from NYU, and was a music teacher in Greenport, NY. In 1969 the selective service had a lottery where they pulled birthdays to determine who would be drafted. They pulled my birthday, so I guess you could say I won. I auditioned for the United States Army Field Band, and was selected to be a percussionist with the touring symphonic band. I spent two years doing concert tours with them. When it was determined that I was going to be a touring musician my fiance at the time, my wife now, gave me a camera so I would be able to document my travels. When the war in Vietnam was winding down and the army was trying to downsize, I took an early out so I could start my photography business. I opened a photography studio in Oakland Mills Village Center in Columbia. At that time Oakland Mills was a beautiful, small enclosed mall. My studio was located there from 1973 until 1993. I then moved the studio to Red Branch Rd and was there from 1993 – 2010. In 2010 I moved to my current location on Gerwig Lane.
