      I am Jay Montez I am a headshot, fashion and portrait photographer based in NYC. At a young age I fell in love with photography after my father gave me an old Yashica 35mm film camera. I was bit by the photography bug. I joined the US Air Force at 17 and was fortunate enough to travel extensively, meeting different people from different countries and cultures. I believe there is beauty in every person I meet. I strive to bring that beauty to the surface in my images.

     I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America as well as a member of the American Photographic Artists Association.
