Several years of work as a creative director and art director in New York City set the stage for Jesse’s imagery. As a creative his list of clients included H&M, DKNY, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Max Mara, the CFDA, Byblos and Genny.
A test shoot with supermodel Angela Lindvall launched his meteoric rise as a fashion and beauty photographer. His first year shooting both British Vogue and Vogue Nippon commissioned him for several editorials, and the esteemed Paris fashion house Nina Ricci hired him to lens a campaign with supermodel Daria Werbowy.

His editorial work has been published in British Vogue, Vogue Nippon, German Vogue, Vogue Taiwan, Vogue Mexico, Allure, Allure Korea, i-D, Lucky, Lula, Tatler, French Glamour, Seventeen, Cosmopolitan, Figaro Japon, Newsweek and Whitewall. His fine art has shown in New York, London, Paris and Tokyo.
