Jay is an internationally published adventure photojournalist living in Jackson, Wyoming (aka Jackson Hole). He started his professional career as a formally trained architect but there was something about the corporate world within architecture that just didn’t work. Instead of complaining or continually living a life that didn’t satisfy, he built a business of his own creation, one that opened the doors to the world and is focused on the foundations of design and art that he learned while studying architecture in college.
Jay very rarely uses Adobe Photoshop to master his photographs. Instead he produces as much of the concept of every photograph in-camera and then masters the overall look in a non-destructive way using Capture One Pro. He does not add or subtract anything to/from his photos. He does not merge or blend exposures. He does not use HDR software or stretch or warp his photos. Instead he tries to focus on producing a compelling composition that highlights the story he was exploring at the time he was exploring it.
Jay spends six months out of the year traveling the world creating stories about riding bikes on dirt, skis on snow, and anything along the way that is outdoor driven or related.
