About Jerry Avenaim: A native of Chicago, Jerry Avenaim got his start in photography as assistant to legendary photographer Patrick Demarchelier. Upon venturing out on his own in 1985, his first assignment was a foreign edition Vogue cover of (then rising star) Cindy Crawford. Basing himself out of Milan, he began to work for Italian Vogue under the direction of Editor in Chief Franca Sozzani.

With an already established fashion career, Avenaim moved to Los Angeles in 1992, where he is now based. Jerry began photographing celebrities and immediately fell in love with the genre. "I love actors and have such a great respect for the craft and it's process." Through the years, he has gained the trust of some of the most strong willed celebrities. In the last decade Avenaim's resume of mega-watt stars reads like a who's who of Hollywood. Some of which include; Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, Mel Gibson, Julia Roberts, Ben Stiller, and Charlize Theron just to name a few.

Throughout his career Jerry Avenaim's photographs have been seen in almost every major magazine worldwide, including Vogue, GQ, Glamour, Vanity Fair and Newsweek. His list of advertising clients have included, Merle Norman Cosmetics, Phat Farm, Guess, Ford Motor Co., McDonalds, Twentieth Century FOX and Warner Bros.

Some of his recent projects have included a special guest appearance on Germany’s Next Top Model with Heidi Klum. and giving Kimora Lee Simmons a crash course in photography on her show Life in the Fab Lane.

I look forward to making 2010 an exciting new year for everyone!
