James Haefner’s career in photography spans the last four decades. An accomplished automotive advertising photographer, Jim’s love of modern design drew him into the architectural world twenty years ago. Employing a unique workflow, his ability to capture the designer’s intentions is paramount to his success. After graduating from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1976 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Jim apprenticed for three years before starting his own studio in 1979. When not behind his camera Jim enjoys a round of golf, travel and spending time with his daughter and son. His contributions to Michigan Modern: Design That Shaped America led to the Michigan Modern: An Architectural Legacy project, which is truly the culmination of a forty year career!
