About Me

[Please note: I only accept friend requests from people I know and/or work with.  In addition to photography I am also a retoucher and do not need any related services.]

Jay Krause (ManyWorks Design Studio) is a photographer with over 50 years of photographic experience.  His dad was a military photographer and he grew up with a darkroom.  In 2000 he abandoned chemicals in favor of Photoshop.

His business provides Web Design, Programming (HTML, JavaScript, PHP, etc), Graphic Design, Photography (Product & Fashion) and Business Consulting services, primarily to fashion designers in the San Francisco area.  On behalf of his clients he hires models, makeup/hair, and photographers, as well as providing photographic services in his studio in Monterey, California.

Photoshoots for his fashion design customers are either in studio, or in different locations (buses, parks, houses, etc) showing off products such as scarves, purses, belts, dresses, etc.  Photos are used on clients web sites, product catalogues, and in promotional literature & mailings.

Jay does not do model portfolios, however photos from photoshoots are always available to the model to include in their portfolio.

In addition to using models for his clients, Jay also hires models for his own art projects, a blend of photo images, photoshop manipulation, and occasionally javascript animation.  His current theme is "hidden image", focused on showing the inner self, feelings, desires using mirrors or other techniques.

Guests (escorts, chaperones, drivers, etc.) may stay on property, but are not permitted in actual studio during the shoot.  This is due to several less than wonderful and no positive experiences.
