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. His experience over the years has allowed him to shoot a diverse range of subjects from Fortune 500 CEOʼs, to patients living with HIV.

“I ingratiate myself to each individual, put them at ease and make them feel really good about themselves. 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. If someone truly comes to life in front of the camera, I feed off their energy and let it burst from the lens” – Blaise Hayward

Blaise has several bodies of Fine Art work including Adrift, 1-10 and Heavy Metal. Blaise recently returned from an expedition in Antarctica, documenting icebergs for a new Fine Art Series. Blaise currently lives in New York City with his wife and two young children.

“Blaise has a great eye for composition; a strong curiosity for finding shots that others would miss; and an incredible work ethic. There is a beautiful narrative behind each picture.”
