It's no wonder that the launch for "Russell James" brought crowds of beautiful women to the Stephen Weiss Studio, since chances are that Russell James himself, has or may want to photograph them. Russell hails from the Western part of Australia and started his career around the late 80s. Though he dabbled in commercials, still photography (of the fashion, beauty, commercial style) remains his first true love. So he teamed up with teNeues publishing house (who pride themselves on pictorial calenders) for his own comprehensive book for work entitled what else but..."Russell James."

The launch brought out the likes of Doutzen Kroes, Alessandra Ambrosio, Ally Hifliger, Donna Karan, Alan Cumming amongst many others.
