Jake was raised in the small mountain town of Gunnison, Colorado. He lived on a river in the Ohio Creek Valley where he learned to appreciate the outdoors. Along side his family and chocolate lab, Jake learned to fly fish, camp, hike, ski, and understand his love for the outdoors. In college, Jake picked up his first camera and started to document his adventures through the lens. Now living in Seattle, Jake actively seeks new adventures and locations to explore, take photos, and relax. He shoots with a Canon 5D Mark III and regularly spends time with his dog Winston.
