Searching For: Tomas Jaski Ltd – UK press photo agency

By May 25, 2015 January 3rd, 2017 Will Carleton

Another request in to our Press Photo History Project over the weekend for information on Tomas Jaski Ltd. The photo for clearance is a general press shot  “The event was, the ‘gilbert and sullivan’ golden jubilee celebration dinner – Saturday 21st September 1974 – the savoy, London, Lancaster room.”

 

This is what the PPHP has on the company:

Tomas Jaski – was Zbigniew Jastrzebski but changed this by Deed Pole at the time that he realised he would never return to Poland.
• Born in 1927.
• A director/photographer at Tomas Jaski Limited. Established in 1961, dissolved 2001.
• Thomas Jaski took official photographs at the Royal Academy of Music for many years until c.late 1980s.

This in from an email today:
I am looking and have been looking for years now, for the photographs that Tomas Jaski took of my niece’s christening (Eleanor Virgo) at Westminster Abbey in May 1991, which features several photographs of my children.
Tomas Jaski had a ground floor studio and shop front at 38 Wellington Street, London WC2 in the 1980s. He is no longer at this address.
My late mother has only one photograph of this event and the code on the back is: 91128-39, which I believe is Jaski’s code for the photographs I am looking for.
Tomas Jaski took the photographs for many of the weddings and events at Westminster Abbey but was not their official photographer.
Tomas Jaski had a ground floor studio and shop front at 38 Wellington Street, London WC2 in the 1980s. He is no longer at this address.
