Phoenix, AZ, USA
Jesse was born and raised by two creative and supporting parents in the small Midwest town of Springfield, Missouri. Good weather and a desire to change his surroundings brought him west. At Arizona State University he majored in photography and art history at the Herberger Institute of Art and Design. Before completing his BFA, he studied and assisted with London's top assignment photographers. These experiences laid the groundwork to strive for equally important careers in fine art and commercial photography.
Jesse has had the honor to work with top clients and be recognized by the several awards his field has to offer. His clients include: BBDO, Publicis World Wide, M&C Saatchi, Cramer Krasselt, AT&T, Coca Cola, the NFL, Ritz Carlton, Warner Brothers, The NBA, Proctor & Gamble, The John Paul Getty Museum, and ESPN Magazine.
His work has been honored by the Communication Arts Photography Annual, PDN Photo Annual (3x), American Photography Annual (4x), Photolucida’s Critical Mass Top 50 (2x), Center's Review Santa Fe 100, Art Director’s Club Young Guns (Top 50 International Emerging Creative Under 30), Luezer’s Archive (200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide) and a recipient of the Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward award in 2012.
