James Duncan Tiller (they/them) is a photographer, anthropologist, and proud cat parent based in Washington, DC.

James first picked up a camera over a decade ago when she would shoot her high school's sports teams in order to get out of the gym requirement. In 2010, James traveled to Italy on a National Geographic Student Expedition where she was trained in digital photography by Nat Geo photography expert, Massimo Bassano. Since then they have engaged in photography expeditions in nearly two dozen countries.

A holistically trained anthropologist, James conducts research in forensic and physical anthropology. Utilizing 3D technology and their scientific photography training by the late Donald Hurlbert, she combines art and science to digitally preserve, document, and research human skeletal and mummified remains.
