BIO Raised in Santa Barbara and based in New York City, Justin Jay specializes in advertising and portrait/lifestyle reportage of artists, athletes and musicians. Over the course of his career, he has had exceptional access to the private lives of many of today's top personalities including special projects shot for Jay Z, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Outkast and The Foo Fighters. His relaxed and narrative approach to shooting has gained him a broad and diverse client base including Nike, Ray Ban, Nixon, Hurley, Fox Television, Red Bull, Mac Cosmetics and Victoria's Secret. Justin has spent the last several winters shooting a book project in Hawaii documenting the culture of pro-surfers and chronicling the spectacle of the Triple Crown surf contest. He has since garnered a reputation as someone who can artfully capture intimate moments and gain access to the the insular world of the North Shore. During the summer months, Jay splits his time between New York City, Rockaway Beach, and Los Angeles focusing on advertising and editorial clients.
