Russell was raised in a middle class family, moving frequently from city to city, due to his father’s itinerant jobs. He quit his education when he was 14 years old, and started working in a factory, but left and supported himself with several odd jobs that he held before he made a decision to become a police officer, as which he served as the police officer for several years, but after his travels to Japan and Sweden, James moved to the USA, arriving in 1989, and soon after started pursuing a career as a professional photographer.

Russell sought various ways of seeking a way into photography and the world of fashion, and his previously hidden talent saw him begin working for such magazines as Sports Illustrated, GQ, and Vogue in a very short time, and soon extended a number of other magazines who were happy to employ him, including American Photo, Marie Claire, and W, among several others.

With the work for fashion magazines came collaboration with numerous models and celebrities, who included Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Angela Lindavall, Fernanda Motta, Ana Beatriz Barros, Marisa Miller, Adriana Lima, Gisele Bündchen, and Alessandra Ambrósio – quite the who’s who of the fashion and modelling world.

Subsequently, for his work Russell won various awards and recognitions, such as Hasselblad Masters Award in 2007. Thanks to his initial success, Russell was hired by Victoria’s Secret, and in no time became its main photographer, which certainly increased his wealth to a large degree.

Aside from his work with the camera, which also includes fashion videos, Russell has been judge and photographer on several “Top Model” series, including “Germany’s Next Top Model” in 2006, then “Australia’s Next Top Model” (2008-2009), and “America’s Next Top Model” (2008-2011), further increasing his wealth as well as his reputation.

Regarding his personal life, Russell was in a relationship with actress Kristin Davis from 2009 to 2010. There is no other information on any personal relationships, so Russell is presumed to still be single. His current residence is in New York City.
