My name is Jay LaPrete and I live in Columbus, Ohio with my wife Debby and our daughter Carolyn. I like biking when it’s warm, skiing when it’s cold and golfing anytime.

I am a sports, editorial, and corporate photographer and I love my job. I appreciate the people, the places, and the stories behind each picture I make. I want viewers to relate to my photography through the energy and emotion of the moments I capture.

I graduated from The Ohio State University and have more than 20 years experience photographing sporting events, news, people, and corporate functions for wire services, newspapers, magazines, universities, and businesses throughout Ohio.

Some of my editorial and corporate clients include the Associated Press, Bloomberg News, European PressPhoto Agency, Fisher College of Business, Honda, Nationwide Insurance, NCAA, New York Times, Ohio State Athletics, Ohio State Communications, USA Today and The Wendy’s Company.

I have photographed a wide variety of sporting events including the NHL playoffs and Stanley Cup Finals, NBA and NFL playoffs, MLS soccer, NASCAR racing, the Olympics, PGA golf, World Cup Soccer, and 12 different NCAA sports championships.

Send me an email or call me so we can talk about how I can help you with your photo needs.
