jt FINEart is the creative outlet for VISIO photography, a company founded by James and Jenny Tarpley. The company began as a simple passion for photography and developed into a desire to create images that help connect a viewer to creation around them.
Receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts, Jenny studied various mediums. Although an accomplished painter, she feels most comfortable behind the camera. It is this union of her artistic eye, technical ability, and passion for photography that produces such impressive work.
James studied fine art and history during his college years. He has traveled extensively throughout the Americas, Europe, and Africa capturing the essence of each locale. His passion for photography comes second only to spending time with his wife and daughter.
In 2013, James and Jen served as the first Artists-In-Residence for Congaree National Park in South Carolina. This was a wonderful way to explore a unique environment as well as stretch their photographic skills. In 2014, they served as Artists-In-Residence in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. This was a fantastic opportunity to photograph majestic locations in the first park to have an AIR program. You can see some images from both of these parks in the galleries.
Please look through the galleries, online store, and articles. If you have any questions, special requests, or just want to talk photography, we'd love to speak with you personally.
