A self taught filmmaker and photographer, Jake spends most of his time exploring and capturing imagery throughout the western United States and Canada. Originally pursuing a career in traditional Hollywood filmmaking, Jake found a new passion for the outdoors in 2014, soon finding ways to pack cameras into hard to reach places to document and share their beauty.
Jake has a background in high end cinema cameras, having spent over 5 years as a camera technician in rental houses in Los Angeles and Portland. He has experience with most major camera systems in use today including RED, Arri, Canon, and Sony cameras, as well as motorized gimbal systems including the DJI Ronin and the Freefly Movi.
Jake has been living out of a converted cargo van since 2014, allowing him to travel more and devote more time to exploration and creative endeavors.
