Things will happen!

 “If you are out there shooting, things will happen for you. If you’re not out there, you’ll only hear about it.”

Jay Maisel 

If anyone knew how to make things happen it was Jay Maisel.  His photography career began in 1954 and gained  momentum simply because he was “out there.”  His remarkably diverse portfolio incorporates famous people like Marilyn Monroe and Miles Davis, magazine covers including the legendary swimsuit covers for Sports Illustrated, jazz albums and annual reports.  His signature talent was his ability to capture the light, colour and action found in daily life.

Joy Maisel amassed numerous awards over the years, but he is loved for generously sharing his knowledge via lecture series.  He is inspiring a new generation to make things happen.
