Jim Burnworth

Jim was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and has always had a love for the great outdoors. He has hunted and fished his entire life. Jim is happiest when he is hunting the high-country for mule deer or the back-country for elk. He always says that the ability to go back country hunting is like nothing else he has ever experienced in his life and he looks forward to these hunts year after year. As a kid, Jim spent endless days hunting and fishing and remembers his 12th birthday being the biggest birthday of all because he could finally hunt. He says, “The days that he took his first buck and his first bull rank up there with his wedding day and the days that his 5 kids were born. For over 15 years, Jim and his wife, Lorrie owned and operated a large production facility in Southern California. He worked with an enormous list of clients from Chevrolet, Pepsi, and the US military, to ESPN and Fox network. He ran his multi-camera production trucks all over the country facilitating large events for many large corporations. Jim moved from Southern California 5 years ago with his wife of over 20 years and their family to relocate to Eastern Washington. This afforded him the ability to focus wholly on what he truly loves, hunting & fishing while filming. Jim is using his natural-God given talent as well as his many years of experience to bring the best high quality product to tape. Jim is a highly ethical man and loves to introduce and teach others about hunting and fishing and the incredible outdoors. He personally works to bring as many new hunters into this industry as he possibly can each year and encourages others to do the same. It is obvious that he is doing what he was truly designed to do. He considers himself a very blessed man. He does what he loves and loves what he does.
