Jay Avilev has been intimately involved in photography since his pre-teen years. His father was a successful camera retailer on the US East Coast and gave Jay access to cameras and equipment at a very early age.
Jay is a chemistry and computer science graduate of Georgia Tech in Atlanta and worked for 30 years in sales and marketing in the mainframe computer industry. Photography has become his passion in retirement.
The industry change from film to digital cameras has allowed and motivated Jay to move from snapshots to a more emotional and creative involvement in photography. The pandemic provided an opportunity for Jay to learn some post-processing tools. His captures from the past 15 years have been catalogued and processed. They have provided a laboratory to learn. His next clicks are always better, but never perfect.
