I hate cancer, so I love any chance I get to take advantage of it.

Less than four years ago I began working for Jay Maisel: First as a part time assistant, eventually full time Studio Manager, and currently as producer of his photography workshops in New York City.

The New Portfolio

April 1, 2011

I’m pleased to announce that Jay’s print portfolio has been completely updated, and is now chock-full of the classic, iconic Jay Maisel images many of us have come to know and love over the years. The collection is a mix of images that have been on display here in the studio for years, images that have been requested by some of you, and even a few pieces you may have never seen before. Many of them are still there from the previous portfolio.

All of the images presented are available for purchase as limited edition pigment prints, signed and numbered en recto. If you have any other questions, as always, feel free to email me (John). Until then, enjoy!

And still, in my first year of working with him, I feel like I’ve been exposed to a lifetime’s worth of wisdom, culture, art, business acumen, passion, and above all, enthusiasm.

There are more anecdotes then I could possibly write about by Jay’s birthday this month. Some were hysterically funny, makes me laugh just thinking about them, and others are more like we were hysterical at the moment, like trying to make a U-turn at the entrance to the Queens-Midtown Tunnel during rush hour to get a sunset shot…
