Jim is an award winning fine art photographer having won 2nd Place, Judges Choice, in the 2010 Around the County photo contest. He received "Photography of Note" designation in the 2014 Peninsula Pulse Hal Prize competition. He won Third Place Photography competing against 73 photographers in the 2015 Peninsula Pulse Hal Prize competition and his photo "County Fair Flavor" was used as the full page cover photo in the August 7th, 2015 News and Events Section of the newspaper. Rossol has frequently been juried into the Guenzel Gallery at The Peninsula School of Art and The Hardy Gallery for public exhibitions.

He has exhibited additionally at Glas Coffee, Blue Bistro, YMCA Northern Door, Cornerstone Pub, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Gallery, The Third Avenue Play House Lobby Gallery, The Door County Auditorium Link Gallery, The Greco Gallery, The Meadow Lane Gallery, and The Miller Art Museum. Jim is represented by The Gallery of The Door County Art League Fine Art Artists.

Rossol retired early from a successful sales and marketing career and considers himself lucky to be able to now have the time to pursue one of his lifelong hobbies of photography in his once long time vacation destination as a full time resident of Door County, Wisconsin.

He began photography at a very early age sparked by a family trip to New York City. The lights, shadows, colors, shapes, and lines of the city hooked him on photography. He can remember his parents yelling at him to stop leaning out of the hotel window with his camera to take photos. He used slide film back then which in retrospect he feels sharpened his composition skills as there is no post processing in that medium. Joining the camera club in High School enabled Jim the use of a dark room which introduced him to developing, and making prints from film.

Jim obtained a B.S. Degree in Journalism and Communication from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana which he believes strengthened his discipline. Always trying to improve, he successfully completed numerous photography classes at the Peninsula School of Art, The Clearing Folk School, and Bjorklunden/Lawerence University and continues to enroll in classes that will elevate his craft to a higher level.

His published book: County Fair Flavor, a Photographic Essay can be previewed at http://www.blurb.com/b/4623686-county-fair-flavor.
