Paid Tourist

    Hi, I’m James and welcome to my site. If you are wondering where I came up with the name Paid Tourist, it comes from being an over the road driver. Simply put, I get paid to tour the country. After driving all day every driver knows you have to find a way to “escape” from the oh so courteous and road sharing “I own the road” drivers that we all deal with in todays society. That being said I have found my way, design and photography.

    “There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer”

Ansel Adams

   So what brings you to my site? If you are looking for an abstract, colorful design to sell or promote your business, then you have found the right designer. As you can tell I stray away from the norm by trying to blend together the right amount of color and graphics to keep the “viewer” interested and coming back to see what is new. I am always searching for new ideas to keep my designs appealing but yet very informative and to the point. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like scrolling and scrolling trying to find what I am looking for on a site. I usually leave and look somewhere else if I can’t find what I need in first few paragraphs. If that is what you are looking for then lets get it put together. Email me at for a quote.

    I’m currently working on a new design for Lenox Wrecker Service Inc. to update a previous Flash design that I did for them a couple years ago. The new design will help them be more “visible” to the mobile web on smart phones, etc. Below is a screenshot of the header for there site. Click on the image to view their site.

    Another design I have recently designed is for RJR Transportation Co., the company I drive for. Their site will be a growing over time as this is their first full site and I will be adding to it as needed. Below is a RJR’s screenshot of home page. Click on the image to view their site.
