Kent Shelton

Master Photographer at JayLynn Photography

I create imagery for discerning clients in Salt Lake City, throughout the state of Utah and beyond. I am a Master Photographer, Photographic Craftsman, and a PPA Certified Professional Photographer.

I specialize in portraiture.

My returning clients enjoy working with me for two main reasons:

1) I’m easy to get along with. I enjoy listening to your ideas and I will always do my best to capture what you are envisioning. I understand that getting the best images from a professional photographer often involves developing a strong relationship of trust. I work with professional athletes and high profile business people who expect privacy. I’ll never share your images without your permission.

2) Amazing images. I love what I do and my dedication to my craft shows in my images and in the industry honors I receive. In January of 2018 I was nominated for a GIA (Grand Imaging Award) in the General Portrait Category. Out of 5800 entries from professional photographers across the globe in the International Photographic Competition, my image was chosen as one of the top ten portraits.

In 2010 I received the IPPA– Photographer of the Year Award for having the best four images entered in the annual photographic competition that year.
