Blaise Hayward was born in Canada and moved to New York in 1996 to pursue a career in Photography.
Known for his high-energy, enthusiasm, and passion, Blaise has the ability to create and photograph a moment of unique connection with people. Specializing in expressive portraiture, he has shot a diverse range of subjects from Fortune 500 CEOs to cancer survivors.
He is currently working on two fine art projects: The Honest Portrait and Dusk. These two bodies of work are slated to be exhibited in 2018.
“I put my subjects at ease and assist them in letting their guard down. This is not something I do consciously, it comes naturally to me. It is part of my personality. If someone happens to be apprehensive or uneasy in front of the camera, I sense an opportunity, not a challenge, and do not let the spontaneity of the moment go unrecorded.”
