About

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.
