About Jim Livingston
Photo by Nancy Smith
Jim has traveled from Central America to Alaska chasing pixels. When it comes to his photography, he does whatever it takes to get the shot. Jim has taken photographs from the gondola of a hot air balloon and from the passenger seat of a race car and has captured images while chasing storms and descending into the depths of caves. His photographs also includes a variety of amazing performers and performances, including the platinum award-winning rock band Blue October and the internationally-acclaimed play Texas in Palo Duro Canyon State Park. However, he is best known for his nighttime landscape images of the Texas Panhandle.

Jim's Current project: I am Rt 66
The concept is deceptively simple. Document the people who work live or otherwise are involved in America's most famous highway with a simple Black and White Portrait and three questions: I am, I regret, Before I die? Sounds simple until you realize Route 66 is 2400 miles long! To date, the journey has led to traveling over 25,000 miles on the 2400 mile highway trying to meet those people. Some 1500 portraits have been taken. A book is being written, a documentary being made and currently, an art exhibit is traveling to different museums around the United States.
Here are links to different things written about him around the web in no particular order.
