About James Stafford

James "Jim" Stafford started Talk.com Inc. in 2005 with a focus on web design, hosting, and community services such as Internet Radio and Message Boards. As he gained experience working for his father's company, GFIDI, Inc. (1995-2004), he realized the importance of high-quality visuals for a successful online presence. This led him to expand Talk.com Inc's services to include photography and video.

Today, Jim is an award-winning photographer known for his expertise in commercial, portrait, and large event photography. Over the past 14 years, he has been recognized by the United States Air Force, featured on local news outlets such as WPTV 5 and WPBF 25, and featured in several newspapers including the Miami Herald, Palm Beach Post, and Lake Worth Herald.

In addition to his photography services, Jim also offers web design, social media management, and graphic design solutions.
