James “Bo” Insogna – Biography

James "Bo" Insogna

James “Bo” Insogna, (“Bo” is his nickname) was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. Bo is a full time Professional Photographer located and based in Boulder County, Colorado. He specializes in Professional Family and Senior Portraits, Commercial Photography, and Stock Photography. Bo is also a passionate Storm Chaser, Nature Lover, and Professional Fine Art Photographer.

After studying with the New York Institute of Photography, Bo opened a commercial photography studio in 1984—in downtown Boulder, Colorado. There he shot for local businesses, magazines and newspapers. He also had the opportunity to shoot for the Bicycle Guide Magazine for the “Coors International Bicycle Classic”.

In 1987 the economy in Colorado tanked. So Bo made an inspired move to Scottsdale Arizona. While there he was the head staff photographer for the “Phoenician Arabian Magazine”. Bo shot and designed the covers for the magazine. He also had a column called “Bo Trek”. These ventures gave Bo the unique pleasure of photographing beautiful Arabian Horses, their riders, and trainers.

1987 was also the first time Bo witness and photographed the power of lightning storms as they split the sky. Enthralled by the experience, he became a storm chaser. Thus “Arizona Lightning”, “TheLightningMan” and “Striking Photography By Bo” were born.

A lot has changed since then. When Bo took up storm chasing and photography they were shooting with film and there were only a handful of lightning photographers. Over the years, many new “Chasers” have contacted Bo and hopefully been inspired by his Lightning Work.

During this time, one of Bo’s images “Operation Desert Storm” was chosen by The Arizona Vietnam Vets for the Desert Storm Memorial Fund.

In 2007 Bo moved back to Colorado. He settled in Longmont—NE Boulder County just outside of Boulder—where he opened a Photography Studio in his home.

Bo’s prints have been purchased by collectors from all over the world and have been featured on Television, in Magazines, Newspapers, and Books. They have also been licensed for all kinds of media.

One of Bo’s images was even purchased and licensed to The Hit TV show “In Plain Sight”. He also had the honor of being feature in the Russian Version of “Photographer Magazine”

The men and the flag represent the "Operation" and the Victory and Liberation of Kuwait. The Saguaro represents the "Desert" and the men and women who served in the Gulf.
