About Me

I am a UK based Documentary, Commercial and Fine Arts photographer. I do what I love and tell stories with beautiful imagery.

After leaving the Royal Navy I trained as a documentary photographer. I have since expanded my expertise to become one of the UK’s leading aerial photographers, always seeking a different viewpoint and more creative ways to tell brand stories and record occasions and events.

I believe that photography is about people, not equipment, and that capturing the perfect image requires sensitivity, discretion and the ability to observe and record detail, as well as technical skill. For this reason, my client base, which includes household names and organisations, tends to remain with me, including Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, who have retained my services as a photographer for the past five years.

Clients & Testimonials

This is what some of our clients have said about working with me……
‘Photography is really about people and no one knows this more than Jake. In a 30-year journalism career I’ve worked with dozens of photographers and Jake is one of the very best. His calm, unflappable manner, his gentle understanding that not everyone likes being photographed, his willingness to go all out to produce the shot no one either thought of or dreamed possible, mark out his amazing work. If you can hire him, you should.’
Faith Eckersall, freelance journalist and author
Jake has done a great job taking wonderful photographs of our family and of a particular project which we wanted to record over the last four years. He has also joined us for a number of large events and family occasions which he has photographed beautifully. He has always been reliable and efficient and we are always delighted with the results.
