    Photography on the Edge
    with Jay Philbrick

    In this dramatic slide show presentation, Jay will describe the creative process behind the making of the images that went viral and have been televised worldwide. He will share the back story of how a local photographer became a viral sensation on the Internet and discuss the making of some of the most amazing environmental portraits you’ll ever see. He will also discuss how Philbrick Photography has managed to stand out from the crowd in today’s incredibly saturated photography market.

    Jay Philbrick is a professional, full-time photographer living and working out of North Conway. He has been an avid photographer since the mid-1970s, and since 2001 Jay has been doing all his photography digitally. He does extensive and distinctive post processing of his images to bring out the best that his photographs have to offer.

    Jay goes to great lengths to create unique and lasting images for his clients. Being an ex-Air Force pilot and climbing guide, Jay’s adventurous nature shows in his imagery. His distinct style is well documented in his images of brides, couples, dancers, and others. He often incorporates unusual and sometimes difficult to access locations with precise posing to create dramatic portraits and imagery.

    Jay’s work has been published worldwide in numerous print magazines and internet blogs and articles. His work has also been featured on television networks worldwide. He is actively sought out by models, actors, authors, pageant competitors, and others who need the perfect image that will portray who they are. He is always assisted in his work by his wife, Vicki, who is also an accomplished photographer and who has a degree in photography.

    The scenery of the White Mountains provides Jay with endless inspiration and opportunities for his landscape, nature, and adventure sports photography. He also travels to destinations in search of unique landscape and nature images. He has collections of dramatic landscape and portrait photographs from all over the desert Southwest of the United States and Europe, and he and his wife will soon be departing on another trip to the Southwest for more such images.
