About Me - B. Varsylvia James

B. Varsylvia James

Owner of KisabowCreations Photography

As a photography, my mission is to develop, build relationships and tell stories.  My relationship with a camera has spanned more than 20 years. I remember when I  was young, I always had some type of camera to take pictures with. With career changes, I  became a business owner, writer, author, director and producer.  I developed and managed a radio talk show (Varsy's Small Business Hour) on WOL Radio; that transitioned into a Television Talk Show (The Small Business Digest) on than WDCA Channel 20.  In 1995, I started working on a documentary about the black church that explored the many facets of the black church.   With my camera and children, she started a fascinating journey through black history.

In 2000, Varsylvia used her talents and skills, to work with Mylestone Records (manager and publisher of their magazine), Brothers with a White Boy Productions (marketing representative), and Gospel Radio (writer and director).

Varsylvia, a visual historian, artist and self taught photographer, her work was first featured on a national scale when Costco Wholesale’s magazine (The Costco Connection) shared with their 1 million+ members the company’s participating with the relief effort at the Pentagon.
