JANE SOBEL KLONSKY launched her photography career in 1976 as the first photographer to scale the cables to the top of the Verrazano Bridge to get a shot of the start of the New York City Marathon. As a result, Klonsky was the official photographer of the New York City Marathon for the next 10 years. A major player in the world of commercial and sports photography for nearly thirty years, with clients including Adidas, Black & Decker, Club Med, Pepsi, Nike, Coca-Cola, Xerox, and Miller High Life, Klonsky has produced images for Olympic sponsors and was the official photographer for Avon Cosmetics running and tennis events worldwide for nine years. Her work has taken her around the world to Kenya to shoot photos of a family of Masaai Warriors; to record an international running competition in Tokyo; and to chronicle the untouched beauty of far-reaching places like Papua, New Guinea, and Myanmar (Burma). She is known for her award-winning lifestyle photography, as well as for her work in fashion, travel, landscape and sports; her photographs been published widely, and she continues to do extensive work for Getty Images and The Image Source. Mother to up-and-coming filmmaker Kacey, she lives with her husband, Arthur, their two therapy dogs, Charlie and Sam, and two cats, Lucky and Humphrey, in rural Vermont.
