About the Photographer

A Minnesota native currently based in Saint Louis, Missouri, Jake is a lifelong and largely self-taught photographer with a passion for the outdoors, traveling, and landscape photography. Starting off at a young age with his mother’s Pentax K1000, his love of photography has evolved into a passionate career that was sparked by fine art/darkroom photography courses in college. He has provided images for a handful of businesses including North Made Clothing Co and Borealis Wool Company, all while traveling wherever and whenever he can to find the world’s beauty. Recently, Jake has began photographing event photography including trail runs, canoe races, adventure races and bike races. His love of the natural world and being outdoors is what he aims to portray in all of his work whether it be from stunning landscapes to outdoor sports.
