Trance is Jay’s life, and photographing the greater electronic music landscape is one of his greatest passions. He has been hailed as “The Denver trance photographer", by Adam Stark - who himself was voted best Colorado DJ for Electronic Colorado’s Best of 2017 awards.
Jay is also Global Dance’s official photographer for events taking place at The Church Nightclub, and has taken pictures at such Colorado festivals as Global Dance Festival, Skylab, Decadence and Supernatural.
While shots of superstar DJs like Tiësto, Paul Oakenfold, Darude and Ferry Corsten have put Jay on the map, he takes just as much pride in capturing the triumphs of his fellow locals. He makes sure that the career milestones of Denver’s most promising talent are on the other side of his lens as often as possible.
Landscape photography was the first type that Jay mastered. Even today, he takes time away from the hustle and bustle of the city to explore the scenic splendor of settings on the outskirts.
Jay has also developed his own unique landscape photography method that yields truly breathtaking images. By patching together hundreds of exposures from the same angle, he capture every celestial subtlety of a nighttime skyline.
About Jay Berino: Jay was born in Vail, Colorado and raised in the nearby town of Frisco; by Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Arapahoe Basin, and Keystone Resort. He fell in love with photography as a high school student, learning to shoot on an antiquated SLR film camera that required proficiency in darkroom techniques like print processing and enlarging. Jay finished high school in Vermont before attending a car stereo trade school in Arizona; and audio engineering school in Maine. Shortly thereafter he returned to the Rocky Mountains where his career as a photographer began to take off. With the help of a good friend he officially launched Jay Bird Photography in 2014, and upon relocating to Denver his clientele grew like never before. The Nikon D850 Jay shoots with nowadays certainly turns out crisper, cleaner photos than his old SLR camera, but his passion remains his strongest asset. Constantly learning, evolving and drawing inspiration from day-to-day life keeps him a cut above other photographers on the market.
