About Jay

I'm a professional still photographer who also has over 8 years of video production experiences. Whether it be a tiny product or a big group of people I am shooting, my style can described as honest and transparent as I strive to capture my subjects in their most powerful moments.

I am always open to working with students who want to learn the secret to good photography, both in the actual shooting of images as well as in the post-production processes involved. In addition, I am able to apply my understanding of lighting to transform scenes into magic. I also have professional dynalite strobe lights which can turn ordinary into extraordinary. I also have post production experience with Photoshop and Lightroom where I apply my skills to turn bring out the best in images.

I have formal photography studio experience as well as on-location experience working with models, products, and people. I've taken basic & advanced photoshop, Lightroom, and advanced product and digital capture coursework which has honed my skills in lighting my subjects well. I also have 8 years of practical media production experience doing video and filmmaking. I have since applied my understanding of lighting from photography to create visually stunning images whenever possible

If you're looking for a patient, understanding , yet inspiring tutor who will teach you technique and develop your own personal style, feel free to get in contact with me.
