About Me

Jay Allan is a Los Angeles based photographer with over 15 years of experience photographing naked women. Jay graduated from the famous Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA with a degree in photo illustration. Upon leaving Brooks, Jay began assisting work with Penthouse photographer J. Stephen Hicks.

After spending seven years in this highly productive studio, Jay opened his own studio in the old Pabst Blue Ribbon brewery in downtown Los Angeles. This top floor loft was built in the old refrigeration storage for the beer (sadly none was left) in a 5000 sq. ft. room. This industrial location was ideal for shooting and featured a five person hot tub in the middle; from inside which, Jay could shoot outward. Assistants had to hand Jay his camera and change the film for him from outside the water. Many high-profile magazine centerfolds were shot here. In 2006, Jay moved to a new studio in Hollywood near the major film studios.

Jay is currently reinventing himself into a more modern style utilizing the newest digital technology and lighting. Jay Allan's work is well known for its high quality lighting and composition. A careful blend of daylight and artificial light, mixed with beautiful makeup and colorful locations, is a standard in the Jay Allan image.

Nowadays, Jay's work can be found in scores of magazines worldwide. Men's Magazines such as Gallery, Penthouse, Club International, Hustler, and High Society have all featured Jay's pictorials.

Recent projects include Alan Ball and Curb Your Enthusiasm for HBO.
