    Jay loves working with clients to capture their stories. Since the days of film photography, she had a passion to tell stories. This has grown into not only working as a professional photographer but also as a photography tutor.

    To her, passing on skills and knowledge to others who love photography to get the best out of themselves and their equipment is a joy. It's first and foremost about helping people improve by only competing with themselves to get better and enjoy their photography journey more. So tell her what your passion in photography is and she'll help on the way to amazing images.

    The picture was taken on December 24, '23. During the preparation for the Christmas Eve dinner, I went onto my balcony and couldn't believe my eyes at what I noticed in the sky. It was like torn pieces of the rainbow thrown and frozen against the dark blue sky. Fluorescent pearls, the Nacreous clouds, looked like the Phoenix in the sky. I saw it for the first time in my life.
