Jesse Lirola’s love of music helped him find his way to a camera in hopes to be a part of music for the rest of his life. So far it’s worked in his favor, having worked with artists across the spectrum from Rick Ross and Snoop Dogg to Merle Haggard, Damon Albarn, and Miley Cyrus; and publications from Rolling Stone to Fader, GQ,  Purple Magazine and so on.


His relationships with artists allow him to document not only their intimate moments backstage, but that of them living outside of the music sphere. He’s taken that approach to all aspects of his work, from Music, to Fashion, Sport, Celebrity, Portraiture and Commercial Work aiming to make images which will stand the test of time
