Anonymous asked: I see you at shows all the time, and you've taken my picture a bunch but I'm always afraid to say hi! I don't wanna bother you.. I really wanna be one of the girls who you put your logo all over though.
At all times forever, its cool to ask me for a photo. Just be polite and wait your turn or wait for me to complete what im doing first.

Anonymous asked: Hi Mr. Coletta, I'm a big fan. I know you're working the events and all, but do you have time to say hi? Even to males? What if I'm wearing your shirt? Would that be strange?
I try to find time to say hi to everyone but I am working so thats my priority, just dont attack me when your blacked out and rolling. Thats not that much fun.
Anonymous asked: Yo bro, my girlfriend wants to know who I'm typing to. She's jealous. Anyway, you took some pics at a show last year on a boat of planes flying by. Anyway, who played that show? I think I was out of town for it. Red Rocks or Phish or something.
It was just a booze cruise, nothing special.

Anonymous asked: If you could do one thing in your life differently, what would it be? And don't respond with, "I have no regrets, everything in life happens for a reason" bullshit. Everyone has something, what's yours?
This is hard because I do have regrets but I’ve tired to learned from them all and right now I’m pretty happy with my life. I feel like if I changed one thing it would affect my life now. SO, to be gay for a minute, I wish I started listening to electronic music a lot sooner in life because I feel like I missed out on so many good dedicated years.

Anonymous asked: Do you make all your money off photography gigs alone?
My photography is my full time job, I make my living off of it.
Anonymous asked: Why are you still single?
My commitment to my job makes to hard to be in a relationship.
justaddcolour asked: Hey James, Alex Djema here [the photographer from Cyprus] asked you quite a while ago and I still remember you answer and taking it with quite a lot of respect, since I admire your work. Have one question for you, although it could be defined as two. Anyhow. I'm saving up for a d800 [nearly there] and I'm thinking which lens to get. Imho the ideal would be the 24-70 f/2,8 and the 14-24 f/2,8. Now my question is, is it worth getting the 35 f/1,4 [for club photography or is it a waste?! Thanks
The D800 is a waste of money for event photography but there is no happy medium because with the D600 you sacrifice focus points and shutter speed. The D700 is perfect with the exception of no video, so you should really weight out what you decide is important for your work.
As for the other question, I never use zooms (besides the 70-200), everything is prime. They are sharper and faster then any other lens. Find a prime lens that you think you work best with.
