Jake is a filmmaker, photographer, and canyoneer based in the Pacific Northwest, USA. He has over 10 years of experience in digital video and photography. After moving to LA in 2012 to pursue a Hollywood filmmaking career, Jake rediscovered his love for the outdoors through the sport of canyoning (or “canyoneering” in the southwest USA). Since 2014, he has made over 200 canyon descents throughout the western United States, Canada, and New Zealand, most recently spending a season in the latter as a canyoning guide in 2019.

Jake has experience with a wide range of camera systems from DSLR’s to RED and ARRI cameras. Jake has a keen eye for detail, color, and composition, and enjoys the challenge of shooting in new and unique ways to get the shot. He always strives to provide the best possible work for his clients, whether working in a studio or out on location.

Jake’s most recent focus has been exploring new canyons in the Pacific Northwest with other local canyoneers, with the goal of opening more canyons and providing learning resources for the ever growing community of canyoneers in the region.

Jake holds certifications as Level 1 Instructor with the International Canyoning Organization for Professionals (ICOPro), and as a Wilderness First Responder.
