California photographer Jay Watson specializes in lifestyle and environmental portraits of people on location. He shoots for editorial, advertising, entertainment, apparel, corporate, and action sports clients. Elemental Magazine once wrote “he shoots the crazy sh*t,” and an early issue of Garage Magazine said “Jay came to California to raise free range artichokes.” Some of these things are true.
Jay is a featured Lexar Media pro photographer and teaches a senior portfolio class at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Originally from Baltimore, MD, Jay has been based out of San Francisco since 1999.
