About Me

“DJ Jarak” Wysocki is a Buffalo, NY-based portrait and editorial photographer, photo retoucher, photo manipulation artist and transgender advocate. In fact, DJ is an open transgender female who has recently been cleared to begin her physical transition.

A life-long artist, DJ began as a character sketcher as a child and then began photo manipulation once a computer and stock photos became available. She only started working with a camera once it was decided that stock photos were too limiting. DJ wanted to own some of her own work, like any artist.

DJ has no traditional artistic education but does have more practical experience than many Art Institute alumni. She has worked for and alongside many creative minds for many years from photographers to agencies.

As you can see from DJ’s work, she has a strong interest in alternative beauty, fashion, and art, but also does a great deal of more mainstream genres as well.

DJ offers photographic and art services to public and private clients such as families, models, musicians, actors and business owners. DJ is also an expert in photographic law, a complicated field which she helps her clients navigate for mutual benefit.

There are quite a few amazing people who DJ credits having inspired her to begin and continue her creative journey. “They’ve encouraged me to evolve”. Among these are Zhang Jinga, Jill Greenberg, Lara Jade, Allan Amato, Tony Mauro, Michael “Michaelo” Oswald and Ilona D. Veresk.

DJ has been published by Jared the Galleria of Jewelry, Solis Magazine, Culture Asylum Magazine, Dark Parlour Magazine, Freque Magazine, Artvoice, LA Weekly, Surreal Beauty Magazine, Von Gutenberg Magazine, Strange Beauty Magazine, Gorgeous Freaks Magazine, Obscure Magazine and she is the Editor-in-Chief of Beautivation Magazine.


Editorial Shoots: For the time being, DJ is waiving her fee for editorial shoots except for the $7 per photo high-end retouching fee. All photos must be retouched. No raw photos will be released nor will they be accepted by magazines. This offer is being made in order to get more publications listed on DJ's resume as well as your own.

Photo Manipulation: $5 for basic (enhanced eyes, clothing color...) and $75-150 for premium, which can include custom digital backgrounds and scenes, digital makeup and skin art, digital props and creatures, glow effects, lighting and shadow effects (for realism), etc. For each additional photo manipulation you order along with the first, 20% will be knocked off the total price.

"DJ is one of the kindest people I have ever met. She is an amazing photographer and digital artist. I have never seen someone put so much time into manipulating just one photo, going back and correcting, fixing, tweaking it to make it just perfect. I was lucky enough to meet many years ago, and work with her every chance I get. We have created beautiful art together over and over!" more less
