A native Parisian, Aurelie Jezequel began her career working as an Art Buyer at CLM/BBDO Paris. There, she oversaw the selection of photographers for ad campaigns, which enabled her to work with world-renowned photographers such as Bettina Rheims and Steven Meisel.

A one-year internship at BBDO New York’s Art Buying office turned into a job offer and a decision to stay in the Big Apple. This experience allowed her to understand the American market as she worked on major ad companies for Pepsi, Gillette and FedEx.    

After a couple of years at BBDO, Aurelie decided to start her own production company, ajproductionsny. The company manages all aspects of a photo shoot, from budgeting, crew referral, casting, location scouting, arranging for equipment rental and travel. Aurelie has had the opportunity to work with many prestigious and talented photographers, including Karl Lagerfeld, Gilles Bensimon, Martin Schoeller, and for clients ranging from Nike to Hermès.
