A little about what I do and how to contact me.

About About

Photographing people is my favourite thing to do, especially when they’re doing the thing they love. I’ve been fortunate enough to have photographed many artists, authors, potters and musicians. I’ve shot for book jackets, album covers, art catalogues and had a book of portraits and studio shots of ceramic artists published by A&C Black. I’ve […]

Music Music

The first song on the album, Untie my Tongue, has been used as the theme tune for Writer’s Cafe. You can find the album on iTunes or contact me for […]

Very sad to hear the news that Mo Jupp has died. A lovely man and a very interesting and inspiring ceramic artist. I met him briefly while photographing Daniel Smith and only took one shot of him while we had lunch. This is it.

It is with great sadness that I heard of the death last week of gallery artist, Dora Holzhandler. I visited her tiny flat in London to take her portrait in 2010. Surrounded by her paintings and photographs of the Dalai Lama and the Queen, she kept me fuelled with stories of her youth and enough […]

What People Say

As we visit each potter in turn, we get a sense of entering a mysterious, private domain. Each one however, reveals the skirmish of creation. Highly recommended.

- Craftsman Magazine – Angie Boyer

The immense visual pleasure of the book lies in the delightful, intimate portraits of potters at work: a laughing Gordon Baldwin, dressed in black and white in largely white surroundings, producing monochrome work: a merrily barefoot Jennifer Lee; Daniel Fisher pulling a face as he concentrates… The photographer, Jay Goldmark, has caught the potters in shots both informal and highly focused – a happy mix.

- Galleries Magazine – SD

Jay Goldmark’s photographs in this book must be lauded. I have seen him at work and can report that he is the least invasive of photographers: discreet, opportunist and eagle-eyed… a good looking book with substance, honesty and surprise.
