Photographer Jay Maisel's career spans 61 years. His name has
become synonymous with vibrant color photography that uses light
and gesture to create countless unforgettable images for
advertising, editorial, and corporate communications. In addition,
his pictures appear in books and private, corporate, and museum
collections. Some of his commercial accomplishments include five
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covers, the first two covers of
New York magazine, and the cover of Miles Davis' Kind of Blue.
Included among his many awards for excellence are the Art Directors
Club Hall of Fame, American Society of Media Photographers'
Photographer of the Year Award, and the International Center of
Photography's Infinity Award.
Since he stopped taking on commercial work in the late 1990s, Jay has continued to focus on his personal work. A graduate of Cooper Union and Yale University, he continues his education by teaching younger photographers at workshops, seminars, and lectures around the world, and has developed a reputation as a giving and inspiring teacher.
