Elyse Connolly
Elyse Connolly Photography Representative, New York City
Juror for two categories: BEAUTY/FASHION and EDITORIAL/JOURNALISM, for PROfessional and Non-Professional work

Elyse Connolly’s unlikely path in photography began as a model-booking agent at Zoli. Though she would soon be managing the Men’s Division for that agency, it was her work editing model and photographer portfolios that convinced her to leave Zoli after six years and begin a new career as a photographer's agent. In 1980 she began representing Rudy Molacek, whose work for GQ and Vogue helped forge relationships that last to this day. Elyse then took on Susan Schacter, who soon became known for her celebrity portraits and work with Calvin Klein.

Connolly's business has changed and grown quite dramatically since then, though the aim of providing art directors, creative directors and account reps with the best possible way to cultivate an image, nurture a concept, or promote a vision has not. Elyse Connolly Inc. now represents Peggy Sirota, Melanie Acevedo, David Prince, John Huba, Francesco Lagnesse, and Jim Cooper. All of these artists have left their marks on the fashion, lifestyle, celebrity, and still life categories, often producing iconic images for campaigns including The Gap, Banana Republic, Volvo, American Express, T-Mobile, Got Milk, and Cover Girl as well as memorable portraits for GQ, More Magazine, Cosmopolitan, and Marie Claire. These images are often copied, but rarely duplicated.

For much of the past 30 years Elyse has been sharing her insights with industry peers while providing sound advice and good counsel to those new to the business. Though anyone can take a picture, Elyse has helped a generation of industry professionals understand the importance of taking a great photograph.
