Clay Enos refuses to be pigeonholed into any one category of photography. From a portrait session with Sting, a far-flung non-profit assignment, or a spontaneous portrait on the street, Clay consistently captures moments that feel both real and transcendent. Always spontaneous yet sincere, Clay's unique style shines through his commercial, editorial and personal photographs.
Clay enjoys the fast pace of shooting on the fly. His relaxed, jovial style allows him to be creative and resourceful with whatever he is shooting. His recent commercial clients include Warner Brothers Worldwide Marketing and the Bloomberg Foundation.
In 2007, Director Zack Snyder hired Clay to document his film adaptation of Watchmen for Warner Brothers. That effort resulted in the publishing of Watchmen Portraits, exclusively dedicated to 220 on-set Streetstudio-style portraits made during production. That opportunity guided him for the next decade as a unit photographer. IMDB
When Clay is not riding his bicycle on the streets of New York, he is roaming the globe discovering memorable photographs of far away places (50-plus countries). He speaks Spanish and French, has no problem traveling coach, and sleeps like a baby on airplanes.
Clay rode across the USA on a Vespa to document the state of food production and the power of local economies. That project then spawned another Vespa trip through Central America to photograph the myriad aspects of specialty coffee.
The algorithm-free social network Vero is Clay's favorite place to share his work which he displays generously.
Clay has a BFA in Film, Photography and Visual Arts from Ithaca College. He has studied further with the VII photographers Jim Nachtwey, Gary Knight and Antonin Kratochvil.
