About Jay
Jay Goodrich is an internationally published photographer and writer. He has essentially written and re-written the same bio for himself for close to fifteen years and still hates doing it. When he is not busy giving himself a pat on the proverbially back, he is traveling the world, riding on dirt and snow, usually getting his butt kicked by some athlete that is half his age with less experience and a bigger ego-although not much more or much less. His clients include but are not limited to Bike, Powder, Dirt Rag & Backcountry Magazines, National Geographic, Sierra Club, and Audubon. Things that make him happiest are his wife, kids, really good coffee to bring him up in the am, and really expensive tequila to take him down at night. You can make donations to... Website: JAYGOODRICH.COM Licensing and Prints: Tandem Stills + Motion. Socially, you can find him on Facebook , Twitter , Instagram and LinkedIn.
