Jim was born in 1949 at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington DC, the son of US Air Force Colonel James A. Gianatsis, a decorated World War II B26 bomber pilot. Jim's childhood was spent living around the world and across America on military bases: from Germany Hawaii and Phillipines, to Virgina, Illinois and Mississippi.
Jim's passion for wheeled motorsports developed early from just 6 years old with building model cars and trains, to stripping down and modifying his bicycles for "racing" when he was just 8 years old. By age 12 Jim had his first camera and was taking candid shots of pets and friends. In 1962 when his family was stationed in Hawai, Jim's career in photographing beautiful girls began at age 12 as he'd approach vacationing college girls in bikini's on Waikiki Beach and he'd asked them if he could take their pictures with his twin reflex camera.
