My name is Jay Snap and I started commercial photography about 7 years ago due to the increasing demand of my work and my ability to use subliminal social marketing to ensure images captured are remembered for years to come. I started photography as a hobby about when I was 7 years old. I used to take photographs using a Kodak 110 Camera. Later used a G Yashika Film camera, then used a Canon T60 for Asian Markets. Outgrowing the technology over age I use Full Format Digital SLR Cameras and super sharp lenses to capture “LIFE!”
Apart from Food photography, my editorials, fashion and product shoots have been well published in Hola! Morac/Europe, La Rev, Rouge, Vogue Italia, DC Modern Luxury, Washington Life Magazine, Capitol File Magazine, The Platform Magazine, Visual Artistry Magazine, What Do I Wear and many more. I have been commissioned by City of Rome, Italy, Canada, The Platform Magazine, Microsoft, Dreams for Kids, Fair Girls – Pearls of Purpose, Georgian Embassy, Embassy of Austria, Embassy of Sweden, HOT 99.5, Knockout Abuse, HiBall Events, FotoWeek DC, Imagination Stage and After School Dance Fund are just to name a few.
In July 2015, I organized DC’s first ever multi day swim wear fashion show now known as DC Swim Week which received press from over 15 media outlets and publications from around the world including Bravo TV’s documentary series, Real House Wives of Potomac Season 1 Episode 8.
I have been often interviewed by news channels such as Fox 5 and publications such as Washington Life regarding my work.
Often times I gladly work with Charitable organizations in raising funds by photographing for their cause at events, or donating a portion of the proceeds from print/canvas sales.
See you on the other side of the Lens!
