Jose Luis Pelaez, a graduate of Cooper Union in New York City, has been shooting stock photography for 25 years. In 1990, Jose established a stock-only studio in New York City. His innovative techniques and insights into stock production quickly established Jose as a leading photographer in the stock industry. In 2001, Jose relocated to an industrial building in West New York, NJ, which was gutted and repurposed as a state-of-the-art stock production facility. JLP Studios, with 10,000 sq.ft. of shooting space, is now one of the largest commercial studios in the world to specialize exclusively in stock photography.
