About JTravisPhoto - Jim McAdory

About JTravisPhoto

Based in Vista, CA (North San Diego County) I have many years of experience in capturing a wide range of subjects from headshots to events as well as a large selection of travel and landscape images.

I provide a quick turnaround and a very affordable service for headshots and portraits suitable for business and personal uses.  The images shown on my website are representative of the quality of the images I provide in all of my shoots.


In addition to photography I also offer a wide range of video production services.  From fully produced commercials and events to "footage only" capture.


We also participate in shows in the Muni Gallery in Escondido, Masters Kitchen Gallery in Oceanside, Wellness Gallery and Chamber of Commerce in Vista as well as Artwalks and Makers Markets in the the North County where many of our images can be found printed on a variety of media including canvas, photo paper (matted), coasters, notecards as well as a selection of framed photos.

Headshot/Portrait Photography
"I was lucky to have picked Jim to do the photography work that I needed. He was very professional and really took his time to get things just right. Frankly, I was a little uncomfortable paying him our agreed upon fee. It seemed like I should have been charged more for the service that he provided. I would highly, highly recommend Jim." Michael E.

Headshot/Portrait Photography  
"Had the location ready to go before I arrived, was neat and orderly, very hospitable. Jim was down to earth, and handled the shoot professionally. He gave me several opportunities for different types of photos as well as poses. He provided me an excellent experience and I could not be more happy!" Alex R.

Event Photography-Birthday  
"I highly recommend Jim! He takes amazing photographs and captures the essence of the event like none other. We asked him to come to my son's 30th birthday party. You can't put a price tag on the wonderful memories that are captured from photographs. Thank you for a job well done Jim." Nana H. 

Event Videography-Memorial Service
"We hired Jim the day before the memorial service we wanted recorded. He was quick to respond, easy to communicate with, and very reasonably priced. He did a wonderful job on the video and delivered the completed DVDs and a link to the video within a week." Chantelle F.  

Event Videography-Retirement Ceremony & Reception    
"Jim was an awesome videographer! He was on time, professional, responsive and his video work was amazing! While he was producing the final product he sent small examples of the video clips. They were a great and a fun way to preview prior to the final product being delivered. Don't look anywhere else - Hire Jim!! He was fantastic!" Alison F.

Event Videography-Memorial Service
"I hired Jim to film my grandfather's memorial service. Jim was so accommodating and stayed in touch with me throughout the days leading up to the service to make sure he had updated information. He showed up early to make sure he had more than enough time to set up his equipment, but made sure to give us enough privacy. Jim traveled to another location to be sure to film all parts of our day, and made sure to get there ahead of us so he could film every aspect of the service. We are overjoyed that we chose Jim and he did it all with such care and respect, and for such a reasonable price. He remained in contact with me in the days following to update me on the status of the video and even provided an extra video free of cost. I can't recommend Jim enough!" Alexa N.

Personal Documentary  
"Words fail me when I want to express my thanks and appreciation for the video concerning my brother... I know it represents months of research and putting it together...  I mailed copies to my siblings and they all asked me to give you a great big thanks for what you have done." Selma R. (letter)

Event Videography-Memorial Service  
"Jim recorded my Dad's Memorial service which we will share with some older relatives who could not travel. He did so much more than we were expecting! He came with 2 cameras, set up his own audio equipment, just in case the church equipment failed, spent more time recording the reception, including an artful review of the memory pictures. We didn't even know he was there...very professional and competent." Linda E.

Event Photography-Anniversary
"50th Anniversary--Jim was very professional yet easy to work with. He went above and beyond what was expected of him. He arrived early, and he surprised us with not only excellent photos but a video as well. We plan on using him again next summer for a family portrait." Mary L.

Event Photography-Business Meeting
"Jim went beyond my expectations. We hired him for an annual company meeting with customers and partners. It was a day and half event focused on collaboration, learning, and networking. He captured the essence of the meeting to promote and increase attendance next year. Jim acted in a professional manner and in what I call "stealth mode". Most of the time I forgot he was there which was key. We will be using him again in the future. Thank you again." Carrie T.

Video Editing, Web Commercial
"Jim is very organized and easy to work with. His pricing is fair and I plan to use him for future editing needs. I highly recommend him." Steve G.

"Jim filmed and recorded our daughter's rock concert. Both the video and the audio were amazing. He was professional and the entire job was low stress and we got to enjoy the show. We are definitely hiring Jim again for the next show." Alex L.

Web Commercial, Video Production
"Professional, fit in with the team and managed the project just has we would have wanted." Ed A. Web Commercial, Video Production "Jim made a few short-form video ads for me.
