From sweeping shots of majestic landscapes to intimate portraits of Cape Town's township residents, Jake has discovered how, through the lens, to communicate the stories of an often overlooked world. 

After a stint in Fiji, Jake moved in 2012 to Cape Town, South Africa, working for Street Talk TV to shoot, edit and produce weekly TV segments that tackle issues big and small in township communities. 

Jake’s photography and film has already won awards, including the World Nomads International Photography scholarship in 2012.

After graduating from Wake Forest University in 2013, Jake moved to Brooklyn, New York where he is now working as a freelance photographer, filmmaker and editor.
