Jay Allan, our own resident photographer and original creator of this website, is a Los Angeles based photographer with over 15 years of experience photographing naked women.  Jay graduated from the outstanding Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA with a degree in photo illustration.  Upon leaving Brooks, Jay began assisting work with notable glamour photographer - J. Stephen Hicks.  It was here that Jay honed his skills both in lighting models and in posing them.   Jay spent seven years in this highly productive studio, first assisting, then shooting for the top Men's Magazines worldwide.  After that, 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.

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. Jay is currently experimenting with newer constant light technology to bring a more modern style to his images while 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.  For more samples of his work, you can visit
