"I’ve worked with Jay professionally for several years on photography projects ranging from small simple tabletop items, to food, to full-scale rooms, to large-scale outdoor shoots. Each time he has brought a keen eye for composition and detail combined with a mastery of technical photography. Jay brings a creative eye that is an art director’s best friend on set. And then there’s his lighting—amazing. What more can I say?"
Gregory Malphurs, Art Director/Creative Director for Meredith, Neiman Marcus and The Richards Group
"Jay is our go-to photographer for Do It Yourself magazine. His lighting is always gorgeous, and he can shoot with ease in challenging situations and spaces. My team loves working with him, too, because days with Jay are fun and problem-free. He brings solutions to the table."
Bethany Kohoutek, Editor, Do It Yourself Magazine
"I met Jay Wilde 13 years ago when we were both on staff at Better Homes and Gardens.We spent many days together shooting crafts, food, interiors, and models. Jay always embraced the new project we were working on and gave us the results we needed to make those products sell and become the best in the industry. When I left Better Homes and Gardens to start my own business, Jay was one of the photographers I wanted on my team. No matter what subject I put in front of him, Jay could shoot it. His lighting is amazing and he is truly an artist in his approach to each subject. Jay was willing to work on weekends and put in long hours to produce prototypes for new clients and to brainstorm on how to make each brand work. One of the best things about Jay is that he understands people and how to work with all kinds of personalities. He loves his work—and it shows."
Carol Field Dahlstrom, President, Brave Ink Press
“Jay Wilde is the ultimate teammate. He is uniquely focused on the task and privilege of making beautiful images, and how to get there from here. That journey is never focused on his expertise or comfort or ego; rather the journey is always a collaboration that welcomes and honors each voice, considers each idea, and takes a thoughtful, artistic approach to putting even the most mundane object in (literally) its best light.”
Lacey Howard, President Goode Girl Media, writer/editor/stylist
