Introduction: 💼 As a commercial photographer with over 20 years of experience, I have worked with over 180 brands and over 64 magazines/publications. I specialize in shooting corporate culture, head shots, editorial, lifestyle, sports, and automotive subjects. 👍 I bring all the necessary equipment to each location, and can build a studio set up on-site. With an office in San Carlos, CA I cover subjects throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. 📸 Please take a look at my website for examples of my work. _______ 🤟🏼 Clients (partial list) 🤟🏼 Audi Sportscar Experience • Bicycling Magazine • Cisco • Gap • Hawaiian Airlines Magazine • Jaguar Land Rover (North America) • LifeAid Beverage Company • Linkedin • Mercedes-Benz • New Era Hats Inc • Nikon USA • Oracle • Porsche • Sapphire Ventures • Signature Aviation • Socksmith • Whole Foods Market • Wired (UK) _______ ⭑ PORTRAITS ⭑ LIFESTYLE ⭑ CORPORATE ⭑ COMMERCIAL ⭑ SPORTS ⭑ AUTOMOTIVE ⭑ _______ ⭑⭑⭑ FAQ: Do you have a studio? ⭑⭑⭑ I specialize in on-location photography, both indoors and outdoors. However I can easily set up a basic studio at your office location for your convenience. Please allocate a few extra hours in your budget for setup and breakdown. If a dedicated studio is preferred, studios can be rented at varying rates depending on the time and location. For budgeting purposes, please allow approximately $120-$150 per hour with a 4-hour minimum to cover studio rental fees if needed. ___________________________________

I've worked with Jay for over the past 7 years (headshots, website photos and events) and he has always been very easy to work, professional and delivered quality work. I look forward to working with him on more projects.
