Jay Maisel

Commercial Photographer, USA

Jay Maisel’s name has become synonymous with light, gesture, and color.  He started his professional career in 1954.  His images have been used for advertising, editorial and corporate communications worldwide.  In 1996 he stopped doing most commercial jobs in order to concentrate on his personal work.  He has exhibited widely and his prints are in private, corporate and museum collections. 

Among his awards are the ASMP Life Time Achievement award, ASMP Photographer of the Year, International Center of Photography’s Infinity Award, and the Art Directors Club Hall of Fame.  A graduate of Abraham Lincoln High School, Cooper Union and Yale University, Jay conducts workshops, seminars and lectures around the world.  His most recent books are Jay Maisel’s New York and an homage to the World Trade Center, A Tribute.
