Compositions of beauty, adventure, and style
People and landscape photographer
Donjay principally shoots outdoors, using natural light to capture his subjects, and highlighting the beauty found in nature. He is best known for his landscape work and, most notably, people in landscapes. When interacting with his subjects, Donjay takes an "explore first and the photos will follow" approach, looking to capture unique interactions between the subject and the environment.
"Clean, natural, bold, and often creatively integrating a human element, Donjay captures the spirit of Phoenix and the surrounding areas through photos." -NewTimes
Many of Donjay's photos are shot in Arizona, where he's based, although some assignments have taken him to other parts of the country as well. When it comes to shooting in his home state, Donjay doesn't limit himself to the expected "saguaros and sunsets" scenes, and instead challenges himself to also showcase new and intersting sides of Arizona.
"Lovely fashion shots. Ethereal desert photos. Pretty portraits. Spectacularly composed landscapes." -Megan FinnertyBelow is a small sample of Donjay's work, highlighting a few of his favorite photos. Click on any of the low-resolution thumbnails to see a larger version.
