Based in New York City, I specialize in documentary, portrait and event photography.

As a visible LGBTQ ally and activist, much of my series and project-based work focuses on human rights and social justice issues.

Before becoming a professional photographer, I earned a master’s degree in criminal justice followed by a ten-year stint as a federal probation officer.  Empowered by an overwhelming sense that I should be helping to change the rules instead of enforce them, Amy Mayes Photography was born.

I also co-own a media company with my husband.

Current Work – FAMILY is a series featuring lifestyle portraits of LGBTQ families taken at home.  For further information or to participate, contact family@amymayesphotography.com.
