Ross James Wallette owner of Ross James Photography


My name is Ross James Wallette. Through my childhood in the states of Montana, Alaska, Oregon, and Washington, I remember being drawn to 2 things. Making music and capturing photos. In university, I studied both, but that’s when I decided I didn’t want to do anything else besides photography. I'm 37 years old now and glad I made that choice!

Over the years I have operated my photography studio in Seattle, Ellensburg, Tri-Cities (all WA state), as well as Seoul, South Korea. I am currently based in the cozy town of Kennewick, WA with my wife and 1 year old daughter, Gianna.

My client list includes the likes of New Balance Korea, U2, Seoul Fashion Week, various independent magazines and designers, as well as all the precious and gorgeous personalities I have done personal photos for. My work has been published in editions of GQ Korea, Acquire Korea, Elle Korea and L'officiel Korea.

I enjoy directing creative and challenging photography projects but also like to photograph portraits and weddings for private clients. In my free time, I am either swimming or hiking with my daughter, playing music in a band, or making fruit smoothies while conversing in Korean with my wife.
