Based in East London, British fashion and portrait photographer Jay McLaughlin has always had a keen interest in photography. Initially choosing to study graphic design, his interest in photography dominated and as a result heavily influenced the direction of his design portfolio. Eventually pursuing photography outright, within six months he had secured his first magazine cover and within a year he was shooting for national magazines. His work has since been published internationally and has worked with clients such as Harper’s Bazaar, TopShop, Olympus, and Vogue.
As well as being a successful photographer, McLaughlin has also conducted photographic seminars and workshops, and been on the judging panels for the Hasselblad Masters and Scottish Fashion Awards.
