My goal in life is to be as good a person as my dog already thinks I am.

A Little About Me

Hey my name's Shawn. Yes Shawn, not Jay. Many people ask me where Jay Russell Photography comes from? Jay was the middle name of my birth father who passed away when I was very young.  I didn't have a chance to get to know him; in fact, his middle name is one of the few things I know about him. Russell is my middle name. So Jay Russell Photography is the way I pay tribute to the father I never knew.

Photography is a passion of mine that has been brewing for several years now.  What I love about photography is it makes you view the world in a different way.  You find yourself observing things like light, colors, textures, shapes, patterns, leading lines, and you pay more attention to small details.  Everywhere you go, even without camera in hand, you look to discover the unnoticed beauty of your surroundings.
